Is powerful storytelling possible in the digital age? Does it require the deep connection of face-to-face human connection? At Narrative Marketing, we believe that, in the modern world, human interaction is becoming all about how to "look your audience in the eye, digitally."

Jojo Furnival, Chief Wordsmith.
I’ve always been a writer. At the age of 13 I had a go at writing a book, and at 14 an extract from it was published in UK teen magazine, Bliss.
I express myself more accurately and creatively when I am writing; the written word gives you time and space to explore what you're really feeling.
After university, I found myself in London, working in marketing, public relations and communications, exploring all facets of my love of the written word.
For 5 years, I managed client accounts at an international business communications consultancy; from social and trade media, blogging and interview features, to brand storytelling and advertising, I've done it all.
I've been blog writing since 2010; I was made a Huffington Post Contributor in 2014 and subsequently became Editor of digital and print publication, CALMzine, which won a 2016 MIND Media Award.
I’ve been lucky enough to interview some of the UK and Australia’s most loved personalities, from sports stars to musicians. But regardless of whether it's a 140 character tweet or a 10,000 word essay, ultimately it's all about telling a story to engage your reader and that's what drives me to do my job.
I love finding out what makes people tick, then turning their answers into stories full of heart and insight.
Chris Warman, Chief Videographer
I'm Chris and I'm the man behind the camera and mic...
My background is in freelance video production for businesses, events and artists. Some of my previous clients include Unley Council, UNISA, Harcourts and SALA Festival.
I've filmed over 50 weddings, 30 live performances and taken photos at more than 130 gigs! I've also curated the Fleurieu Film Festival for three years now.
I enjoy being behind the camera so much that time melts away and a 14 hour job becomes my playground.
The moving image runs through my veins; my uncle is a renowned Australian TV and Film Director and I grew up wanting to follow in his footsteps. Ever since I had access to a Nikon Coolpix (with a blistering 3 Megapixels) in 2002, I was making silly videos, stop-motion animations and transferring to VHS tapes in my spare time.
My hobby then grew into a vocation when I attended film school for two years in 2010/11, during which time I got to work on the set of Red Dog. I enjoy the documentary format more than large scale productions though, so if you need an Adelaide videographer I'm your man! (I also travel...)
My favourite part of making videos is that I can experience so many new and different things.
Jack, Chief Recreation Officer.
I like Chris and Jojo because they contribute to my healthy, happy work environment. They throw my ball for me at lunchtime. I could do that all day...
