Real impact

Applying the lessons from the Accelerator course helped We Own It produce a viral video with Stephen Fry defending the NHS. The video generated over 250,000 views, became their most viewed TikTok ever and even generated press coverage.

We're indebted to your training - we used a villain hook and tried to edit it with 'all killer no filler' in mind and moved a nice visceral phrase to the first few seconds. Thanks for your amazing tips.

Our approach helped Liberty increase their video performance by 10x

Our workshops helped Liberty create amazing in-house videos, like the one on the right, which generated 1.4 million views and 150,000 engagements.

Building this capacity and expertise in-house has enabled Liberty to increase the reach of our campaigns in a way that we would never have had the budget for if commissioned externally. It’s a huge part of the way Liberty now campaigns and mobilises its audiences.
