We Leverage Strategic Storytelling Through Micro-Documentaries to Unlock Marketing Potential

By blending the art of micro-documentary filmmaking with a deep understanding of market dynamics, Beyond Werds transforms narratives from the autism community into strategic tools for visibility, offering organizations a powerful medium to connect and engage.

We partner with a spectrum of organizations and professionals in and around the autism community, including professional service organizations, educational institutions, experience-based businesses, and dedicated non-profits and advocacy groups. While our direct clients are these entities committed to supporting individuals and families living with autism, our work inherently resonates with and is for the benefit of these families, reflecting their experiences and championing their stories within the broader community.

Here are a few examples of a micro-documentary: a concise, engaging short film that captures and conveys a compelling story or issue, typically within a few minutes, making it ideal for today’s fast-paced, digital audience.

Before evolving into its own entity with a distinct mission, Beyond Werds served as an innovative process within our parent company, Fill in the Brand. The content below reflects our original page, preserved for context and insight. While our mission has grown, our foundational process endures, providing a clear lens into our journey and why our current focus marks a significant evolution.

Discover how our expert-led conversation process can elevate your brand and drive business success.


We Press Record On Conversations

Beyond Werds is a transformative process that is an integral part of our methodology. It shows up in many different ways, including:

The Start of an Engagement

Authentic Video Content & more can happen in only 30 days with this entry-level service offering. If you have marketing momentum and are interested in ways to level up your branding efforts to raise awareness and drive revenue, this is a great place to begin.


During A Campaign

Exclusive to existing clients, this category is focused on expanding conversations beyond the scope of the current project. It is what happens during production in between official takes or at the end when we keep things rolling. While it is also used as a way to prompt stronger responses that can improve the overall campaign, it also creates new possibilities for what we can do tomorrow.


When It’s Personal

These are conversations with people we’re interested in, about topics we’re curious about. They’re not always with our clients or people in our market. They’re often with individuals who have impacted us and have a story we want to capture. Though not for a specific business objective, we’ve found that seeking these conversations out uncovers unique opportunities.

I’m Andrew, the founder of Fill in the Brand and the creator of Beyond Werds.

Beyond Werds has always been the foundational process for everything we do at Fill in the Brand. In recent years it was just given this name, and it has made everything we do work.

I have always been driven by the desire to stand out and make a real impact. I struggled to find the right words to describe what I did and how I could help others. That’s when I discovered the power of vulnerability and authenticity.

I realized that if I was going to build a brand that truly resonated with people, I needed to be open and honest about who I was and what I believed in. So, I started having conversations with people I was interested in talking to, and I began to capture those conversations on camera.

These conversations became the foundation for everything we do at Fill in the Brand. They helped me understand my clients on a deeper level, and they helped me communicate their message in a way that truly connected with their audience.

And that’s what Beyond Werds is all about. It’s about going beyond the surface level and getting to the heart of who you are and what you believe in. It’s about capturing those raw and authentic moments that make you who you are and using them to build a brand that truly stands out.

We want to help you do the same, and that’s why we’re sharing this process with you. We want to help you discover the power of vulnerability and authenticity in building a brand that truly resonates with people.

We expect Beyond Werds to evolve in the years to come, but it will always be the foundation of what we do.

The Champion Autism Network (CAN) is a non-profit organization based in Surfside Beach, South Carolina, that aims to create supportive and judgment-free experiences for people living with autism. Founded in 2012 by Becky Large, a business professional and mother of a child with autism, CAN works to educate and empower communities, businesses, and organizations to enhance the quality of life for people with autism. The organization values love, empowerment, acceptance, and playfulness as key principles in its mission.

CAN recognizes that life with autism can be unpredictable and that people with autism may have sensory processing issues that make certain stimuli difficult to tolerate. As a result, they may have tantrums or meltdowns in public, which can lead to criticism and judgment from others. In an effort to create more inclusive communities, CAN works to build a network of autism champions that includes businesses, local non-profits, and individuals with autism. In 2016, Surfside Beach declared itself the first autism-friendly travel destination, and the City of Myrtle Beach and Horry County followed suit in 2018. Through its efforts, CAN aims to create a world where all people can happily live, work, and play.
