Find out more about what a typical day involves as a freelancer, running your own business and what he loves about being a video producer. Ben also shares his top tips for a career in the media and creative industry.
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 their part-time admin queen, alongside her day job and motherhood. They live in Stockport, work in Manchester and produce content all over the UK for clients of all shapes and sizes.
They 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. They pride ourselves on being friendly and easy to work with, which goes a long way. If you’ve got an idea for a video production project that you’d like to bounce off them, please get in touch. They're always happy to sit down and chat things through.
