Annie Escobar was born to end bad non-profit video. She is the co-founder of ListenIn Pictures, a media production company that crafts cinematic stories to create connections that inspire action. ListenIn Pictures has created over 45 videos for 20+ non-profits. Annie has documented the work of activists in Bangladesh, Nigeria, Palestine, Ghana, South Africa, Vietnam, Brazil, and the US.
She is the author of The Starter Guide to Non-Profit Video Storytelling and has spoken about the impact of storytelling at TEDxNYU, Google, The Foundation Center, and Be Social Change. Nothing makes Annie feel more alive than meeting people, hearing stories, and sharing them. Annie credits her extroverted personality to being one of ten children and having a mom who danced all by herself in the aisle during her middle school band concerts.
