Based on our client’s objectives we work with them, selecting the correct format, from video, animations, and training to improve how they communicate online through video.

Paul’s Love of Storytelling

Paul has always had a love of storytelling. Being a good listener is part of being a storyteller.

Paul’s “Aha Moment”

In 2008 Paul was an English language teacher. He signed up for a filmmaking course in Filmbase in Dublin. On this course he directed his first short film and he found his calling. From there he made more shorts, moving on to making award winning short documentaries, The Druid’s Cage & Freddy the Leprechaun.

In 2010 Paul set up Vivid Eye Video, making 100’s of wedding films, working with corporate clients, really learning what type of videos got great engagement online….. authentic videos that created emotion in the viewer.

In 2017 he was the Irish Wedding Awards Videographer of the year.

Social Video HQ brings all of Paul’s experience together to help our client’s communicate with their audience online, through Video Production, Animated Explainers or Training to speak on camera or make your own videos.
