Mike Kilcoyne | Video Storytelling for Entrepreneurs

MK Productions + Futurebound

video storytelling proposal.


putting futurebound on the map through creative storytelling.

The goal with this project is to come up with a number of creative pieces of video content designed for Futurebound’s social media channels, including LinkedIn, Facebook, and Instagram.

Throughout the conference, we’ll be interviewing leaders who are paving the future of child development and recap some of the most extraordinary moments from throughout the event.

We’ll also be chatting with program leaders about the specifics of the Futurebound program, including the $30,000 investments that they put into programs, the support they receive from the community, and how all of that blends in with the mission of creating a greater impact throughout the Colorado community.

The goal will ultimately be to shine light a new light upon the Futurebound and the impact that it’s making on early childhood development and education throughout Colorado and beyond through creative (and fun) storytelling.

Why us?


We explain complicated things simply. 

The reason why you came to us is because of our ability to capture and explain things that are often really, really complicated — like, estate planning, or, rocket science — in simple terms.

For reference, refer to one of our recent client videos:

The videos that we’ll be executing for Futurebound will look like something more along the lines of this recap that I recently did for Denver Startup Week…

“The investment paid for itself within the first few months, easy.”

Mike's work has helped me save hours a week, and doubled my close rate for clients who have seen my videos. The investment paid for itself within the first few months, easy.

Videos are expensive. We work with our clients to ensure that our videos actually drive people towards a specific action, and that they pay off.

Another one of our recent clients — Ari Zelmanow — regularly sees up upwards of 5,000 to 10,000 views a week on their content just through LinkedIn, resulting in massive exposure to their brand, and dozens of new client development opportunities per week.

That exposure has been powerful in helping him connect with big influencers on the LinkedIn platform that help lend more credibility to their brand.
