bringing stories to life
" your story is our passion "
technology :: narrative :: emotion
" Why do you always want to fire blue frogs out of cannons? "
" Unorthodox but effective "
" it’s all or nothing with you "


The quotes above are a few of the comments which were thrown my way while producing digital content for the BBC over the last 15 years.

In that time, among other things, I’ve explained 30 years of the Northern Ireland Troubles in 3 minute motion graphics, strapped heart monitors to bikers travelling at 200mph, brought Titanic’s last moments to life in 3D and rebuilt a WW1 trench in virtual reality.

In order to bring these amazing projects to fruition I’ve been lucky enough to have had both the support and exacting standards of the BBC and the opportunity to work with some very clever and innovative people from the independent creative industries.

StoryFX’s pedigree is the culmination of this experience.

With a wide range of digital production experience and creative partners StoryFX can bring your business or project to life.

VR Workshops

Virtual Reality is gaining more and more traction as  hardware companies continue to launch higher spec models. What can VR do for you? How could it enhance your business? Even if you just want to learn the basics and get your hands on the kit, StoryFX can facilitate VR workshops to suit your requirements.

Motion Graphics

A slick and stylish 2 minute motion graphic – combining creative animation, a dedicated script with a professional voice over – can sum up your business instantly and help get your message across with impact, replacing the repetitive text of corporate speak on your website or within an important presentation.

Online Presence

With vast experience in the production of engaging and creative content, StoryFX can assess your current portfolio to improve your digital presence or project. This could be harnessing the latest mobile technology to gain more customers or to help you completely refresh your website content.

Augmented Reality (AR) or Virtual Reality (VR) can bring your products or services to life in mind blowing ways. From a simple  promotional campaign to a high-end VR or AR experience or a 360 degree video, StoryFX can help plan and deliver your idea, for these exciting new platforms.
