Harness the power of stories
to drive your brand

StoryHorse is a creative studio that crafts compelling video content for brands. We are a collective of writers, art directors, planners, strategists, producers, designers, illustrators, sound designers and animators, all passionately driven to tell stories.

Powerful video content marketing

Stories have power. The power to excite. The power to ignite imaginations. Narratives that inform, entertain and motivate can galvanize humanity into action. Stories have united millions of strangers for centuries and driven them to cooperate on the most complex of tasks. Your brand can harness this power too. Brand videos can explain products, create brand awareness or increase sales, as well as recruit talent, present ideas and promote events.

Collaborate in 7 Steps

We have the experience to guide your brand communications all the way through strategy, creative concepts and production.

On every project, we mark out a clearly defined 7 step roadmap:

1. Briefing and strategy
2. Concept and script
3. Voice recording
4. Storyboarding and art direction
5. Design
6. Animation
7. Sound design and music

You’ll have the opportunity to collaborate at each of these 7 steps.

Once you have your powerful piece of communication, we can create a strategic media plan to distribute it on the right channels to the right people at the right time. All your metrics will be tracked and as your partners, we will report on your ROI to ensure your success.

Case study – Social Anxiety Ireland

If this is what every day feels like, don’t stay silent.

The Brief

Social Anxiety Ireland needed to drive awareness of social anxiety and boost donations to their site. Social anxiety is a surprisingly common disorder that causes an individual to experience intense anxiety in everyday social situations. This can result in deep emotional awkwardness, shame and fear, and ultimately isolation and chronic depression. Our challenge was to create a compelling piece of content that accurately captured how it feels to suffer from the condition.

The Story

It is better to share your story with those who understand rather than suffer in silence. Interviews were carried out to learn first hand what it’s like to live with social anxiety. Based on these interviews, we came up with a collection of video vignettes that drew on the sufferers’ own experiences. We wanted to visually convey their isolation in social situations through an uneasy off-kilter tone, which was further enhanced through sound design and music.

Case study – Impact Gumshields

Impact produce the highest quality custom fit gum shields on the market with a world’s first in sports 3D printing technology.

The Brief

Impact came to us for a video that would engage schools and colleges and to inform them about Impact’s patented 3D printed gumshields. The task was to generate interest and to encourage the educators to trial the product. Impact used the video for communications through social media, online advertising, on their website and offline in presentations and events.

The Story

The unique process and benefits of the product were highlighted in an engaging video, showcasing it as a better choice to the standard alternative of dentist fitted moulded gum shields. As a result Impact are now expanding, opening more offices throughout the UK and Ireland and supply the Irish province teams and major schools and colleges.
