Short Video Creation Training

Project Details

What We Need
  • Training on how to create video content for web and specific social media channels, including Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube
  • List of recommendations and best practices for shooting a video
  • Instructions for how to post videos to respective social media platforms
What We Have In Place
  • We are starting from the beginning. We have a phone camera tripod table-top stand; I've ordered a lighting ring to attach on to the camera phone; have a wired microphone if needed or can purchase a wireless if needed.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to have a significantly wider reach & improve interaction with members. As with every other non-profit feeling the strain on our economy, we operate on a shoe-string budget w/ 1 staff & few volunteers.

We need to use every means of connecting with our members, donors, and world-wide community. We feel that using video to communicate our organization's goals and needs is one of the most effective use of our time. We are committed to learning every aspect of digital marketing and will begin working with another Catchafire volunteer for our email and social media marketing, in this case, specifically for marketing a new book we published.

Our Mission

Our Mission:
"To collect, protect, and preserve historic documents and sites; to disseminate the oral, written, pictorial history; and to educate ourselves, our residents, and our visitors, about the history and cultures of Kauai and Niihau."

What We Do

Kauai Historical Society established in 1914, has a long history in Kauai County. Initially formed to protect the islands' historic places and document its history, our staff currently archive valuable written material in all forms, as well as photographs and various forms of media

Many volunteer staff have worked tirelessly over this period of time to archive donated collections to the Society. It takes many hands and dedicated, skilled volunteers and staff to achieve what the Society has over its 106 year history.

A visionary Board President and supportive Board of Directors currently lead our organization.
