Room: Embassy H

Social media has become a dominant force in both local and national campaigns and candidates today must be able to effectively communicate who they are to their communities across multiple social platforms. In this hands on session we will discuss how to create a candidate bio video that will help your campaign stand out across social media. The discussion will encompass an overview of personal branding, video production on a wide variety of budgets, as well as how to target your audience on each platform so that your message reaches the maximum number of potential supporters. The session will culminate in a bio video shoot for two of the workshop attendees.

This is the perfect companion to the You Being Real On Camera where attendees will learn to connect their personal story with their vision on camera.

Organized by Democracy Labs, a project of the Tides Foundation, is a Silicon Valley hub for technology and storytelling innovation that serves progressive campaigns and organizations at the national, state, and local levels.
