Welcome to Tigermonkey Productions

Video Production, Digital Storytelling Workshops and Consultancy.

Everyone has a story to tell. Our stories are the windows through which others see us and understand our unique place in the world.

Tigermonkey Productions brings stories to life. With 25 years experience in media, education and storytelling, we specialise in video production, web promotion and digital storytelling workshops.

Tigermonkey Director Jeff Licence is an award winning storyteller and has created films and run workshops for the ABC, Australia Council for the Arts, Qld Performing Arts Centre, Griffith & Bond University, Aurecon Engineering, Burleigh Brewing, State Library of Qld and the Australian Institute of Architects (plus many more).

In September 2018, Jeff is presenting digital storytelling workshops for the Royal Opera House and the Royal College of Art in London.

Digital Storytelling Education and Consultancy

With a 25 year background across education, digital storytelling and media, Jeff has taught thousands of people aged from 5 to 85 how to plan, create and share their own stories.

“Being a film maker used to have such a high bar to entry, especially in terms of the equipment required. But all that has changed and Jeff Licence taught us how to make great videos with nothing but our smart phones and his knowledge of film-making technique.”

The digital storytelling workshops are designed to help the business, tourism, education, construction, finance, arts and corporate sectors to:

    • define and extract their unique story/ stories into authentic offerings
    • understand the essential elements of storytelling
    • enhance their ability to share their work or message online
    • capture quality content (video, photos and audio) with available technology (e.g smartphone cameras) to create easily shareable visual sequences
    • edit footage quickly (via smartphones) into short, sharp videos that capture the essence of an event, character or experience
    • save time and money on video production
    • share this self-created content via social media channels, websites and other promotional platforms to create awareness.

Jeff also operates as a digital storytelling consultant, helping clients plan, develop and devise narrative ideas around their specific communication needs.

This can range from:

  • Development, planning and prioritising of story ideas specific to your business
  • Individualised story brainstorming, planning, storyboarding to potential production. 
  • Interview techniques, including asking the right questions and how to get the best from talent. 
  • Working with presenters, managers, CEO’s etc. on their ‘on camera’ presentation skills. 
  • Brainstorming story content and angles for future video and audio creations. 
  • Developing capabilities to shoot, edit, and upload to social media within a quick turnaround time.
  • Skills to shoot, edit and publish an event video to social media as it happens from smartphones.
  • Using DSLR and smartphone cameras (based on clients equipment) to convey important information and provide a sense of ‘being there’ for an audience.
  • Advice on online / social media platforms based on type of content and communication needs. 
  • Advice on best / most appropriate equipment to purchase.

  2. Hi Jeff

    We are a family from Brisbane on holidays and just walked past your shop window display in Tugan. As a lover and collecter of many things ‘with stories’ of my own and found in obscure places and op shops etc etc I just wanted you to know how much we loved your creative display and it’s story. It was really enjoyed.

    Thank you

    • Thanks Karen, lovely to get your message (even belatedly!).
      Glad you enjoyed my eclectic effort – it was fun to put together and I really enjoyed seeing people engaging with the collection of story bits.
      There is so much history and detail and personality held in those old quirky things, I really love it.
      What kinds of ‘things with stories’ do you collect?
      Cheers,
      Jeff
