Testimonials

Many Happy Customers

Elise Black, PwC
"Phil at shortstories worked on the PwC account for over three years on a range of high profile film projects and animations. The content we need to communicate is often complex and technical and requires exceptional creative minds to bring our messages to life in an engaging and impactful way. Our strategic objectives were met. The process was done smoothly and enjoyably and the outputs were innovative and effective - I can not recommend him highly enough."
Leigh Matty , Founder of Just Voices
"We decided to make a short film of our business which we could promote and share on social media platforms. We didn’t really know what to expect, but it was a great experience! shortstories filmed us in our office, and brought out the right ethos and atmosphere of our staff and place of work. We are so happy with the end result! The film perfectly represents us with the personality that we wanted. I highly recommend them."
