Why do you need an emotional connection with your audience?
Sustainable success in the modern world all comes down to trust, and these days it’s in short supply.
With values becoming crucially important to your audience, you know it’s no longer enough for you to tell people you’re for real. You have to prove it.
You already have everything you could ever need
Your team and the people they help are an un-tapped treasure trove of experiences, struggles and triumphs. The potential for their authentic stories to inspire your audience is staggering!
But for most organisations, the logistical and financial constraints of traditional video production means these stories go completely untold.
Smartphone video has changed the game COMPLETELY
The good new is: virtually everyone now has a device in their pocket that can turn them into your personal camera crew at the tap of a button, no matter where they are.
With a reach that extends over seas and past borders, you’ve got inspirational access to all of your organisation’s stories at the tap of a button!

Sadly, getting your people to film smartphone video is a huge challenge…
They have complex, demanding jobs, so they’re unlikely to prioritise planning video, or film the correct content.
Their time is extremely limited, so they can’t justify the distraction of filming, or the techincal headache of getting the footage back to you.
They’re not confident or experienced with filming, so footage you do receive is inconsistent and poor quality, making the final result a rescue-job that’s unlikely to inspire anyone.
It shouldn’t be this difficult to tell the stories of your organisation!
Captain makes it thrillingly simple to showcase the stories of your people
1 Direct it.
Set up interview questions ahead of time, along with lists of all required shots. You can keep it simple, or add detailed instructions.
This forms a Story Code, which is sent to the people doing the filming, and acts as a detailed brief that takes the pressure off them.
2 Collect it.
In the app, the Story Code becomes a task list that walks contributors through the entire filming process on their smartphone. No training required, and no wasted time.
As soon as they’re recorded, clips are sent back to you automatically, so no technical headaches for you or your contributors.
3 Perfect it.
Captain neatly labels all your clips, and guarantees they’re all the right file-type no matter who did the filming, making editing an absolute breeze.
You can take care of shaping the final product yourself, or we can lend a hand.
For organisations who want to create their own regular, authentic videos with ease.

Frequently asked questions...
A project is a set of filming tasks and instructions created in the Captain Online Portal and accessed by contributors via the Capture Captain App.
A project is linked to a unique Story Code (typically a word and a set of security digits).
This is what contributors use to access your project's interview and filming tasks.
A contributor is the person or persons using the Capture Captain App to complete your filming tasks.
Each project has a maximum number of contributors, depending on your subscription tier.
When in test mode (before a project has been set LIVE) any number of devices can access the Story Code, and these do not count toward your contributor limit.
Once a project is set LIVE, each time a unique device accesses a Story Code, one of your project contributor allowance is used.
Once you've reached your contributor limit, no new contributors will be able to access the Story Code.
If you need more contributors for your project you can upgrade your package in your account settings.
Absolutely! Capture Captain was designed with marketing and brand agencies in mind.
Our Professional package allows you to brand the Capture Captain app with your own logo and brand colours.
With bespoke or Enterprise packages you can go one step further and brand each project individually. So you can work with multiple client brands from the one interface.
The Capture Captain app is available for both iOS (Apple) and Android devices.
We can't guarantee that the app will work on your device, but we're yet to find a device that it doesn't work on.
If you're having problems signing up and using Captain, or if you think you've found a bug, then please contact
Captain makes it simple to direct and collect video from anyone with a smartphone, but we currently do not offer an inbuilt video editor.
In our experience, web-based video editors are not quite up to scratch, and recommend users download clips locally and edit using their favourite video editor (Adobe Premiere Pro, iMovie, Final Cut Pro, Avid etc).
If you'd like Captain to create an inbuilt video editor then let us know!
If you need help editing together your final video then we do offer a bespoke editing service.
To get the best results we'd recommend chatting to us before you start filming.
Schedule a call to discuss your requirements.
Video clips recorded by contributors get sent securely back to your project manager and stored on Captain's data servers - hosted by AWS.
Project managers can access and download video clips from the Captain Portal. Nobody else will view video contributions.
Project managers will then download the clips, and edit them into whatever video project your contributor has agreed to be a part of.
After 120 days, video contributions are deleted from the Captain servers forever.
All intellectual property rights belong to the video contributor.
However, contributors grant the project managers organisation and Captain an exclusive, transferable worldwide licence to use the video content as they see fit.
Captain will never use any footage for any purpose without the express permission of the project manager.
Whilst we hope every user has a positive experience of using Captain, sometimes things just don't work out.
We'll do everything we can to address your concerns, and the first thing to do is schedule a call or email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your concerns.
Any refunds are at the discretion of Captain.
Yes! As many people as you like can film footage for your project, all at the same time.
Captain currently works as a single ‘seat’ system. The user that signed up is in control of the online portal.
A multi-seat function is in our development roadmap.
They’re yours to use how you want, wherever you want, for as long as you want.
You’ll need to add these in your own editing software, once you’ve downloaded all your clips.
