Our new website

Welcome to our new website!  Please have a browse, watch the film with the volume turned right up, post a comment to let us know what you think of it or just quietly ponder!

I hope that what will shine through is the simplicity, clarity, storytelling style of content and forward-thinking design which is so important to us at The Storytellers.  We’re particularly pleased with our film which we hope reflects the creativity and superb quality that comes out of our creative team, Storyfactory (you can read more about Storyfactory under ‘What We Do’).

I can’t post this blog without a massive thank-you to some specific individuals in the team who have contributed to the design and build of the website and of course the film, which wouldn’t have happened without hours of storyboarding, weekend filming (fuelled by many bacon rolls) during the cold, dark early hours of the morning, huge flexibility and professionalism from the cast and crew and the passion and commitment that characterises everyone we work with.  Drumroll please…..
