Your brand. Your story. Your films.

The Lights, Camera, Liberty workshop is a highly interactive storytelling, messaging, and video production workshop held in partnership with Just Add Firewater.

It will offer you unique opportunities to refine your brand, craft better stories, and develop inspiring films. During the workshop you’ll also have the chance to network and collaborate with members of Hollywood’s film industry and marketing industry leaders.

You'll join other senior leaders of the worldwide freedom movement to get some theory refreshers, inspirational examples, and a whole lot of hands-on time developing your next impactful storytelling project!

We encourage past attendees to join us again this year to workshop a creative project and take part in a bigger and better program than we've ever had before. Prior to the workshop, registered participants are invited to submit an expression of interest to participate in our brand-new film pitch competition. A shortlist of applicants will be selected before the workshop and will have the chance to pitch their film idea to a panel of industry experts during the program. You can read more about the film pitch competition and application requirements here. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact Hunter Rauch at 

This year we will have a virtual component of the workshop for participants unable to travel to attend the workshop in-person in Atlanta. Please contact Alex Cordell at to learn more about our virtual option and how to participate. 

You'll leave this workshop with

  • A transformational experience on messaging for your work

  • A distribution plan for your video
  • And a whole new way to tell your organization’s story
