WHAT IS THE NARRATIVE?
Hello and welcome to our little corner of the Internet - glad you made it. We are The Narrative, a collaborative digital and film studio based in London. We tell stories we believe in, and we try to do it the best way we can by working with fun, talented people. Currently, we are making series with TV commissioners, Digital Platforms and Publishers, but we also have self-funded projects being developed for 2017.
We don’t make ‘content’, we make films.
And really good homemade fried chicken. Seriously.
HOW DID IT START?
Some of us started our careers writing drama, others as bloggers, or graphic designers, programmers, teachers, Olympians, etcetera, etcetera, but we all met in one place - YouTube - where we looked to hone the art of filmmaking. YouTube gave us a creative freedom to try out new ideas and the community gave quick feedback so we could learn to tell a funnier joke or construct a more complete story. In order for us all to get better, to create something bigger, we came together and called it The Narrative.
WHAT IS THIS WEBSITE ABOUT?
We want you to come on this journey with us as we grow from project to project. We’ll share our thoughts as we try new ways of working that help the creative process. If you want to collaborate with us, send us a message.
AS A YOUTUBE CREATOR / DIGITAL FILMMAKER, HOW CAN I JOIN YOU GUYS?
Sign here! We only use 10 yr contracts, take 80% of your revenue and own your YouTube channel, but we’ll get you brand deals with makeup and fast food brands in return. JOKE!
We represent YouTube Creators as a management team and creative producers. However, our focus is developing your craft. We will never blindly pitch for the biggest brand deal. We are filmmakers first and look to co-produce a documentary, comedy or drama series with you. Check out the projects featured on this website to get the best sense of how we work with Creators.
DO YOU OWN A DOG?
Yes, we have a puppy. His name is Huxley.
DO YOU ACCEPT UNSOLICITED SCRIPTS?
Unfortunately, we do not accept unsolicited scripts and will have to dispose of them. With that said, why do you need us? Get out there with your DSLR (or phone) and shoot it yourself. Then send it to us as part of your portfolio.
DO YOU GUYS WORK WITH COMPANIES AND BRANDS?
Of course! Our Team come from a mix of Agency, Commercial Production and the YouTuber worlds - we get all sides of the equation. We pride ourselves in making sure we can put out a quality film and also promote something really cool.
CAN I SHOW YOU MY REEL OR PORTFOLIO?
Definitely. The worst thing is to create something and nobody sees it. Feel free to send your portfolio to lawrence [at] thenarrative.io. Somebody at The Narrative will watch it, just give us some time to feedback.
