Storyrunner was founded in 2012 by journalist and director Stijn van Baarle. In the beginning, Storyrunner was focusing mainly on documentary filmmaking. Together with the well-known Belgian biologist Dirk Draulans we have made over 10 documentaries for Canvas (Belgian national tv).
Nowadays, we also make much shorter videos about science and sustainability. Our speciality: making complex information accessible to the general public. Experience, knowledge and creativity are the keys to our success. The extra layer animations is the icing on the cake.
We won a few awards with our work. The Belgian Federal Council for Sustainable Development selected our productions “Alles kan schoner” (2014) and “Duurzaam duurt het langst” (2016) for the prestigious FRDO Press Award. “De Macht van het Minuscule” received the top ratings from Canvas viewers. The "Demeter" video won the Marie Curie award for best outreach and the EU4FACTS award.
In the weekends you can watch and hear Stijn van Baarle also at the VRT NWS and Sportweekend, another passion of him. But he keeps Storyrunner on purpose small. So, we can keep our high standards, stay flexible and competitively priced, while working with the best screenwriters, directors, graphic designers, editors and cameramen.
