WHAT WE DO
The Narrative is a digital studio with an audience. We create original short, mid and long-form content, and we're experts at integrating digital content with linear shows, both our own and existing 3rd Party IP. Every project we create is built on the foundation of our unrivaled understanding of online audiences, the freshest on-screen talent and the platforms where they spend time. We build loyal communities around our IP and turn to these communities to test and iterate new ideas.
We're the company behind 'Mission Selfie’, BBC Worldwide's first-ever Digital Series Commission. The series debuted No 1 on iTunes bringing Apple thousands of new signups and was distributed on BBC 3 and iPlayer. Our BBC Three show ‘What I Wish I’d Known About Porn’ received six times BBC Three’s average views in the first month, and captured their audience’s imaginations with 34 times the average engagement. In our work with MTV’s Digital fitness brand MTV FIT, we’ve integrated MTV’s TV talent into Instagram, Snapchat and Mobile.
In our first 3 years, we have had shows commissioned by traditional broadcasters and new digital platforms (BBC, MTV, Nat Geo, YouTube & Vero), produced a Sunday Times & Amazon Bestselling book (with Penguin Random House) and delivered premium content for 40+ different brands (AMEX, BMW, Canon, Omega, Heineken, and more).
FOUNDERS OF THE NARRATIVE
CREATORS OF AGILE PRODUCTION
With a background mix of premium content and digital experience, we have created a new development process called 'Agile Production'. We refine the development and production process through an iterative approach based on data and feedback loops, which means we can create content faster, better and cheaper.
“The Narrative’s founders have taken a leaf out of the Silicon Valley playbook and define this ultra reflexive production methodology as ‘Agile Production’ after the agile development strategies beloved of tech start-ups.”

DO YOU OWN A DOG?
Yes, his name is Huxley.
DO YOU ACCEPT UNSOLICITED SCRIPTS?
Unfortunately, we do not accept unsolicited scripts. We do have a formal script submission process which will be announced later this year.
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.
DO YOU OFFER AN INTERNSHIP?
We do! Every year, we work with universities and courses that require internships. In past years, we have engaged students from University of Brighton, University of Glasgow and Central St. Martins as well as other colleges. We do accept interns outside of a course and they would follow similar guidelines for the internship.
