Is your organisation using online video effectively?
Community Builder grew out of a simple idea - we've seen too many amazing stories gathering dust on YouTube and Facebook, so we decided to do something about it.
We're here to help non-profits tell video stories, and build communities to support their organisation's good work.
Our team of dedicated production and marketing specialists work around the clock to ensure that your content reaches your target audience, no matter who they are.
We're the social enterprise unit of Melbourne's Community TV and online broadcaster, C31. Our purpose is to build the digital capacity of Victoria's not-for-profit sector by developing video communication campaigns that aid the activities of our partner organisations.
We're working with some of the brightest minds in the field to offer affordable and effective packages for your organisations. We offer ways to grow online audiences, communicate with stakeholders and participants, collaborate across community sectors, attract funders and donors, tell stories across multiple traditional and digital media platforms and more.
Affordable and socially-aware video content is at the core of every Community Builder project, while also providing on-the-job training opportunities and career pathways for C31 production assistants from all walks of life.
Filming & Video Production
Options to suit any budget
Whether it's a simple piece to camera, a roving camera team at a conference, multi-camera coverage of a sporting or arts event, or a full studio production, our team is ready to go at a moment's notice.
Hygiene vs. Hero content
Social media is a hungry beast! For continual community growth, video needs to be a big part of your daily content schedule. Build engagement with regular snippets of "hygiene" content, and release your polished "hero" piece to a captivated audience.
Shoot once, edit forever
Through careful planning and creative execution, we can turn a single film shoot into many months' worth of content for your communications plan.

Video with purpose
Community Builder grew out of a simple idea - we've seen too many amazing videos gathering dust on YouTube, so we decided to do something about it.
We help non-profits tell stories, and then connect with clearly defined target audiences, through a combination of paid and organic reach.
Directly engage stakeholders and supporters
The Community Builder team is committed to using their digital marketing expertise to build a socially progressive society.
By capitalising on the advanced targeting capabilities of online marketing platforms, we can target very specific audiences, such as potential donors, left-leaning voters, funding bodies, government representatives and prospective clients.
Achieve strategic objectives
Every non-profit we work with has unique objectives - we don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach.
We can grow newsletter databases and social media audiences, increase engagement, assist with crowdfunding and attracting donors, improve brand awareness, drive traffic to a website or landing, or build out a creative content calendar.
If your organisation needs to define a business-driven strategy, we can even help with that too.

Project 1 Million
Project 1 Million is a social media campaign designed to tackle racism, involving stakeholders from charities, media organisations, digital marketing agencies, filmmakers, influencers, donors and supporters.
Our purpose was to reach, challenge and inspire at least one million Australians through the power of digital media and positive storytelling by increasing their understanding of marginalised communities and increase social cohesion within Australia.
To learn how we did it, you can view the case study below.
Mamada Development Institute was established in 2016 by elders from Melbourne's South Sudanese community with the support of the Victorian Multicultural Commission.
Mamada is a focal point for the community and aims to assist and direct community members to training courses, work experience and career pathways, as well as providing information and support for young people looking to work.
