  • BRINGING THE POWER OF MOVIES TO CORPORATIONS
    WITH AND WITHOUT THE CAMERA

    We started Backstories because, as corporate professionals, we saw so much good work go to waste and so many smart people lose their sense of purpose - all because they were lost in the clutter of charts.

    We wanted to help them, and we knew we had a better way.

    Because as film professionals, we know that movies and the way they tell stories - simple, quick, visual, emotional - can give managers and directors something more powerful, something that embodies everything execs want from "storytelling."

    So in our workshops and videos, we help them take their information and ideas to a whole new level. So they can get seen, get heard, and get buy-in.

    MOVIE STORYTELLING POWER, EVEN WITHOUT THE CAMERA

    Video is only one part of it. There are literally dozens of movie storytelling strategies you can bring to your presentations, from the way you approach a chart, to the way you move your feet when you speak.

    In our half and full-day workshops, we take you and/or your department through a process that will help you turn even complex data into a clear and compelling, visual story. In our full-day version, we use a presentation you're currently working on as our main exercise. This way, you can apply your new skills right away and see an immediate difference.

    WHAT KIND OF
    IMPACT DO YOU
    WANT TO MAKE?

    We do our best work for clients who want to make a bigger difference - for their companies, their customers, their colleagues, and, of course, for themselves.

    It just feels so good every time we get that call telling us how they knocked it clear out of the park.

    We've got a method to make that happen more often and invite you to get in touch.
