"Working with Micro-Documentaries was a wonderful experience. The amount of care and intention that was put into crafting the narrative went way beyond my expectations. From the beginning interview to the final editing I felt my thoughts were welcomed and made part of the process. The micro-documentary format has made it so easy to tell the story of this project through an engaging and informative video narrative that was easy to e-mail and share with anyone."
Naomi Natale, TED Fellow, artist, social activist founder of One Million Bones

Noah Stout on filming the Stanford Blood Center Series
One function of Micro-Documentaries is to depict stories that will move others to action. Perhaps the most touching productions I have worked on were those for the Stanford Blood Center. These were stories about peoples’ lives being saved from blood and bone marrow donations. I give credit to everyone who selflessly donates blood, and has allowed one of these stories to move them to a blood center to save a life. What I want to talk about in this piece of writing, however, is a different sort of inspiration I experienced when digesting these stories.

When my younger brother was born in Caracas, 34 years ago, four perfect strangers got out of bed in the middle of the night to give their blood to save my mother's life. In gratitude, my mother has given blood whenever possible and has encouraged others as well. After producing a series of micro-documentaries on behalf of the Stanford Blood Center to inspire people to give blood, our team was naturally inspired to do the same. At our recent company gathering we held a blood drive and were able to experience the satisfaction of giving this gift of life.
