Make a movie
Share your homeopathy story
Homeopathy Awareness Week (HAW) 2018
For HAW 2018 we invited you to share your homeopathy story – make your
movie and spread the word!
Videos are currently the most frequently seen and shared medium on social media, and short videos (30 seconds to 2 minutes) are popular.
The project is ongoing, but we started by celebrating Hahnemann’s birthday and HAW2018 with some mini movies – starring you (or your friends, family, children, babies, animals or pets)! 2018 World Homeopathy Awareness Week focused on mothers, babies and pregnancy.
To help inspire new patients, let people know about the benefits of natural health, film yourself talking about how homeopathy helped you, then share and/or send the movie to us to share on the Homeopathy Worked for Me page: www.facebook.com/HoWFMe/.
How to create a video:
Use the video camera setting on a smart phone or camera and press record – it’s as easy as that. You may want a question to answer (see below) or just to start talking about your experience of homeopathy when you’re filming. You can get a friend to help film you or simply use the front facing camera on your phone – like you do when you take a selfie.
Messages could be:
– How homeopathy has helped you or a client, friend or family member
– What you’d say to a friend about homeopathy
– If homeopathy has reduced your dependence on medication/improved your quality of life and how
– End with ‘homeopathy works for me’
– Film in landscape setting, not portrait
– Make sure the lighting is sufficient (you may need to turn lights on) and are clearly seen
i.e. don’t film with a window behind you
– Look at the framing, try to get head and shoulders in shot
– Look at what is behind you, film against a back drop that looks good
– Keep it short, start with a smile
– Usually the first go is the most natural and best
– Make sure there are no other noises and speak clearly but naturally
– Hold your hand steady or support your hand on a flat surface (or use a tripod if you have one)
Sending your video
– Make sure you are on wi-fi and connected to the internet
– Click on the movie and then click the ‘share’ icon
– You will see various options e.g. Facebook, YouTube, Email etc
– Upload the video to your social media channels
– Send it to us to share on the Homeopathy Worked for Me Facebook page and website for the HAW2018 video campaign – message to www.facebook.com/HoWFMe/
– If it’s a minute or less, you can share on Instagram if you’ve an account there. Tag us @HomeopathyWorksforMe
Happy film-making – we look forward to hearing your homeopathy story!

As many of you might already have heard, in honour of World Homeopathy Awareness Week, we are hosting live stream events of the film in three continents/time zones: North America, UK/Europe, and Australia. Each stream will be followed by real time Q&A’s with different panelists for each continent.
This is an opportunity for you to watch the film again, share it with your family and friends, and reach out beyond the homeopathic community. Encourage folks who could not make it to your events to watch the film and participate in the live chat/discussion. Set up screening parties! What better way to continue to spread the message of freedom of choice!
Please share the info your friends, on all social media, and your networks. We need your help in getting the word out there. As always, you are our amplifiers. We will be posting frequently about these stream events. Continue to follow us on all social media, share our posts, and create your own.
Together we can make a difference in healthcare systems around the world!
