Interactive video is much more than just a video with a button on it. It’s a whole new way of thinking about video, by joining up multiple clips into viewer journeys and experiences. From feature films and immersive theatre to demos and tours, from recruitment and training to challenges and behaviour change campaigns – the uses of interactive media stories are exploding (seemingly by the day!)
We built Stornaway.io as an interactive filmmaking platform, and it’s grown to be a creative-focused production tool for all kinds of interactive video stories and journeys in every sector. We’re proud to be a part of a rich ecosystem of tools.
There are lots of platforms to choose from – and each has a slightly different offering. So for 2022, we’ve took a dive into 22 top options – along with information on their key features, who they’re best for and (where possible) pricing – and compiled our findings in an article: 22 interactive video tools for 2022.
We hope that whatever you’re trying to do, you give Stornaway.io a test drive – do let us know how you get on. Have a look at some of our examples and case studies via the links below to see what’s possible.
