The network has produced guides for practical reference and usage as training materials, including Video Making on Android, Video Compression Guide and many more.



The Video4change network has held a number of global and regional gatherings to share information, resources, strategies and best practices in the use of video as a tool for social impact.



In addition to guides, this website also contains numerous individual resource materials around pre-production, production, post-production and distribution of impact video.



The network is currently conducting a research project to explore the impact of video for change.

Video for Change Impact Survey: Key Findings

In October 2014 we asked Video for Change practitioners to complete a survey to help us better understand impact design and impact assessment practices and needs. 41 people completed our survey and by far most were working in Asia (91%) followed by North America (21%), Latin America (19%) and Australia/Oceania (19%). There were also 4 respondents working in the MENA region and 4 in Sub-Saharan Africa. The majority of the respondents (51%), worked as independent video-makers, 38% worked with organisations who exclusively engaged with video and 36% worked with organisations that focus on social change but not necessarily on the use of video. Most of the respondents had more than 5 years experience working in the area of Video for Change.
