Marketing & Promotional Videos

Marketing & Promotional Videos

Grit and Thistle Film specializes in creating marketing, promotional and fundraising videos for nonprofit organizations, NGOs, INGOs and private companies in the outdoor adventure, tourism and hospitality sectors.  While traditional film production used to cost tens of thousands of dollars a minute to produce, we work in a way that is light, fast, unobtrusive and affordable. We light to think of it as low impact filmmaking that minimizes interruptions to your organization.


Our experience in this field of filmmaking stems from the years we spent as development professionals working internationally, as professional magazine journalists covering expeditions to the far corners of the world, as adventure travel consultants creating some of the earliest sustainable pro-poor tourism projects and more. We bring a lot of life experience to every project that allows us to relate well to the challenges and opportunities you face.

Many organizations are realizing that short form films are a very effective promotional tool that can be distributed worldwide very inexpensively, leveraged as effective fundraising tools as part of live presentations, used to give funders and members a true sense of the places they work, and they have a long shelf life. Short films are a sound investment.

Please Contact Us with your video needs or ideas. We’d love to start working with you.


The short films above are promotional projects we did for nonprofit organizations. The first highlights the works of Veterans Expeditions, a vet-founded, vet-led organization for military veterans of all eras. The second profiles Peruvian Hearts, a project creating educational opportunities for young women in the Andes of Peru. They have both used film very effectively to communicate their message, create closer connections with their members and raise funds.
