In the past, the camp fire was the place people gathered to catch up with friends and listen to stories.
And today it’s no different.
Imagine the web as a vast forest with countless digital camp fires being lit by brands and businesses who want you to come and join their circle.
The question is, how do you make them stay? You gotta tell a cracking story. That’s where we come in.
No matter the platform, no matter the genre, if people connect and engage with your story, they’ll stay, and they’ll bring their friends next time, and your camp fire circle will grow and grow and grow.
Our global industry experience over the last 20 years has allowed us to work across a diverse and interesting range of projects including TV, Feature Films, TVC’s Documentary and creative branded content.
We know how to feed the fire with compelling, creative content so people stay and keep coming back.
Are you looking for a new brand film to take your story to the world? We want to collaborate with you to identify what makes you special, and then create a visually stimulating video campaign to cut through the noise.

HERE'S WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY...
Hollie and Josh from Story Works are an absolute pleasure to work with. Very professional, articulate, and experienced cinemograph and journalism. Would have no hesitation to recommend and use their services again.
Kiwi Bird Life Park
I've had the pleasure of working with Storyworks for two seperate corporate shoots for my company and on both they have been fantastic. Easy to work with and the calibre of the footage provided was top-tier. Definitely will be working with them again for any other work that might come up in the region and would highly recommend.
NZ Golf Open 2023
We have used the team at Storyworks for our New Zealand Open content capture for the past few years. We have found Josh and the team amazing to deal with, and they have always produced high quality content for our digital channels and world wide broadcast. If you are looking for a team with great creativity, amazing work ethic and world class production, look no further than Storyworks.
"I would highly recommend Storyworks for any and all of your productions. We recently partnered with Storyworks to document the testing of Cadillac’s flagship electric vehicle at a testing facility in New Zealand. With COVID restrictions in place, we were not able to send a producer from our team so we relied solely on the Storyworks team to provide in-person support. The pre-production was seamless and Josh was perfect in dealing with the testing facility which is across the globe from our offices here in Detroit. In addition to suburb coordination, the footage Storyworks delivered was amazing. Powerful aerials and slo-motion testing shots set the mood for what is going to be an amazing piece of content. Our agency was thrilled and so was our Cadillac client. I am looking forward to working together with Storyworks again in the near future."
"The most amazing thing about working with Josh and his team is that they are there to take ownership and be present with your project and it's needs at every level. Communication is prompt, consistent and always professional, showcasing the teams high integrity, impressive knowledge base and investment of time and willingness to see projects through as gracefully and completely as possible. We will be using Storyworks as often as we can for our ongoing NZ and global projects!"
‘’We cannot recommend Storyworks highly enough. Despite the most challenging of conditions ( snow to ground level in Queenstown, Milford road closures and plenty of operational headaches ), they were professional, positive and adaptive throughout our shoot, and still managed to deliver beyond our expectations. The quality of their work is exemplary, and has been instrumental in bringing our new brand to life. The team were a pleasure to work with and went out of their way to ensure we got what we needed. Dream team! 10/10’’.
"My team had the pleasure of working alongside Storyworks earlier this year for our resort’s “What Does Your Office Look Like?” recruitment campaign. Josh and Holly’s knowledge and enthusiasm for video production made the entire experience really enjoyable and their team’s editing process was flawless."
"Really well done. Josh you had to overcome amazing challenges to film like you did, and Holly, I take my hat off to you. That was a really big call to pull off in a couple of days, and a very tough thing to manage and direct, I know you went through a lot of fret and thought, so well done. What you all achieved in the time you had and where you were is amazing, and Josh hero of the mountain tops you deserve a medal, your camerawork is fab, thank you, thank you, thank you."
"You have kept closely to the original brief and shown a real understanding of the product and service we offer and our company values. The videos are both informative and inspiring, providing the point of difference we asked for. The Ultimate Hikes team appreciated your work ethic on the shoot, and your communication throughout the process. The quality of the material produced, and the post-production speaks for itself. The outcome is outstanding."
