How to gain a good video interview

Our video training courses train charity staff to create short videos on their iPhones and one of the key parts of the training is helping people to gain a good video interview.  Speaking to a beneficiary, volunteer, fundraiser or staff member is an effective way to show the difference your charity makes.  Once you’ve identified someone willing to tell their story, the next challenge is ensuring that the interview brings out the best of their story. Interviewing can be challenging and asking the right questions is key to telling better stories. 

Christmas CSR Advent

The weather has turned, Christmas ads are on the telly, advent calendars have been opened and the shops are full of people frantically trying to find the best gift or the best bargain.  It’s a busy time of year but the real spirit of Christmas is cherishing peace and goodwill and giving to those less fortunate.  We love helping companies promote their CSR initiatives and show how their companies are making a difference.  We’re always inspired by the impact CSR projects have and as we prepare for the festive season and reflect on 2014, we felt compelled to tell our clients that we 'L

Purple Flame goes volunteering

Purple Flame has been working within the charity sector for over 14 years and over this period we've been involved in supporting our clients in a range of ways - from volunteering on a building site with Habitat for Humanity and jumping out of planes on a sponsored skydive for Asphaleia through to some pro bono work for a local small refugee charity. Recently, I've been challenged by the idea of volunteering on a more regular basis and have been looking at what's available locally.

Using Video in CSR Reports

Many large corporations are publishing their 2013 CSR reports this month; it’s a great opportunity to communicate CSR objectives and progress and particularly identify key achievements over the year.  Traditionally companies have presented information about their CSR initiatives in documents such as annual reports and press releases or on a section of its official corporate website.

CSR Videos Changing Perceptions & Stereotypes

Our latest CSR films were produced for technology company Avanade to help change the perception of technology and encourage more young people to consider a career in the sector.  Whilst encouraging a wider and more diverse scope of applicants the films aim to particularly encourage girls into the industry.  We produced two films for different audiences, one for schools and one for community outreach; they were similar in terms of content but distinctly different in terms of emphasis of delivery.  Both films demonstrate the wide range of careers in the technology sector and show the variety
