In recent years, we witnessed a dramatic shift in the way we get our news; citizens with a smartphone can now film world events faster than large media companies. Scores of professional news operations have shut down their foreign bureaus. News aggregators are abundant, recycling the same stories over and over.
Technology is moving at lightning-fast speeds, but journalism lags behind. There are plenty of people tweeting, blogging, sharing, and liking content, but there aren’t enough creating media that matters.
We founded Storyhunter to empower local, professional video journalists to tell the world’s most important, untold stories.
We believe the best story ideas are born from people on the ground, not editors in other continents. We embrace stories that highlight injustice and harmful cultural stereotypes.
We believe voices of regular people are more truthful than politicians or pundits. We look for positive, inspiring tales that don’t ebb with the 24-hour news cycle.
We believe the future of humanity will be determined by the quality of the information we share and the stories we tell ourselves. We enable our Storyhunters to turn their boldest ideas into premium web video content.
We have created a new model for video journalism production that combines the best aspects of citizen journalism, access and authenticity, with the best practices of professional journalism, high quality and credibility. Our web platform connects a global network of professional, local freelance video journalists to the world’s most forward-thinking digital publishers.
Storyhunter sees a web site today no differently than our ancestors saw the walls of a cave; a blank canvas to communicate our most genuine fears, dreams, and stories. We want to fill this modern canvas with true stories from real people, more accurately reflecting the human experience.
