Free Commercials for your Bed-Stuy Business

Social Video Series

If you have a passion for sharing your business and want to tell the story about your unique product, then this is the medium for you: our new SOCIAL VIDEO SERIES. The Bedford-Stuyvesant Gateway Business Improvement District is going to tell your story to thousands of potential customers.

With your help, we are going to film a 2-minute HD docuclip which will tell the story of your business, and bring your customers closer to you. Whether you have a restaurant, beauty salon, fish market, clothing store, or anything in-between, this will be perfect for you!



What we need from you:

  • 10 minutes of your time for an interview! We only need less than an hour and a half to shoot all of the action and b-roll footage in total.


  • Confirm a schedule for shooting. What day and time works for you? We understand slow days are easier, but maybe you want to pick a day that has a lot of customers around?


  • Permission to film and release the media throughout our social media networks including facebook, twitter, wordpress, vimeo, and youtube, among others. Of course, you get a digital copy to keep and share.


What it costs you:

  • Nothing. Zilch. Nada. It’s free! We do all the filming, editing, and production within our existing marketing budget.


How to apply:

  • Please send in 1) a short description of your business, 2) your physical storefront location, and 3) what you imagine the two-minute clip to include. Please keep the description to about a paragraph.


It is part of our mission to spread the word about how awesome your business and Bed-Stuy is. This is just one more step towards creating a vibrant destination which residents and visitors alike can share and enjoy.


For more information or to apply for a film shoot, please contact Alex Sommer, Bed-Stuy Gateway Communications Specialist at or leave a message on our facebook page or event page.
