Telling Stories is What We Do

Social Video HQ, is fast becoming one of Ireland’s leading, Animated Explainer Videos Company.

We use our team of professional animators and have trusted voice over artists to create a really great Animated Explainer Videos, 3D Animations and Whiteboard Animations.

“We worked closely with Paul in Social Video HQ on our Road Safety Tip Campaign and we couldn’t be happier with both the service he provided and the videos he created. Paul worked with us every step of the way, from brainstorming sessions to create the characters and their roles right through voiceover and final creation. We could not recommend Social Video HQ more.”
