Video production for social media, made in Manchester

Everyone wants to “do” video. But nobody is quite sure how or why.

That’s why every day we’re bombarded with shallow video content that maybe entertains us for a few seconds, but then we forget all about it.

Studio 91 is a social video production agency driven by purpose and impact, instead of chasing likes and views. We look for clients with inspiring, shareable stories, and simply help tell them. We’re proudly based in Manchester, but we work all over the UK and beyond.

We help brands and organisations tell inspiring, shareable stories.

Since launching in 2018 we’ve worked on loads of exciting digital video projects with people like BBC Philharmonic, Children In Need, St Ann’s Hospice, CBeebies, Prezzo and more. Head to our blog to see some examples of our latest video production work. We’ve also written loads of resources to help you produce DIY video in-house and devise a video content strategy.

We love working with purpose-driven organisations who understand the power of video content. If that’s you, drop us a line.

The team

We’re based in Manchester but work all over the UK, and sometimes further afield when we’re really lucky.

Studio 91 is run by founders Ben and Ellie Horrigan, along with a crack team of freelance creative professionals. Ben set up the company after six years at the BBC, producing digital video content for flagship brands like Blue Peter and BBC News. Ellie is our part-time admin queen, alongside her day job and motherhood. We’re based in Manchester and we work all over the UK for clients of all shapes and sizes.

We can create high-quality video content faster and cheaper than a traditional studio, because each client is looked after by one dedicated multi-skilled creator, who knows that client’s brand, story and team inside out. We pride ourselves on being friendly and easy to work with, which we find goes a long way. If you’ve got an idea for a video production project that you’d like to bounce off us, please get in touch. We’re always happy to sit down and chat things through.

Feedback from our video production clients

Studio 91 Media is fab to work with. Ben is multi-talented and approaches every project with a high degree of creativity, professionalism and value for money. And he’s really nice as well so guaranteed you’ll have a great time working with him!

Ben is able to tell the story in the most appropriate way every time and make it look AND SOUND slick (not something that always comes naturally to other film makers). Love working with Ben and hope to do so for a very long time yet.

Ben was a brilliant communicator all the way through the project, understood the brief and went above and beyond to deliver some beautiful videos. He also was an excellent director, making us feel comfortable throughout.
