The Wellington Story

PWT & Grow Wellington

Showcasing Wellington to the world

The Wellington Story is a series of seven humorous and quirky videos showcasing all that our capital city has to offer. Shot across Wellington in over 60 locations, Storybox mobilised up to three film crews shooting simultaneously, including a drone rig, in order to capture Wellington at its finest.

The series was commissioned by Grow Wellington and Positively Wellington Tourism as part of the Destination Wellington programme to fulfil the need for a strong promotional tool to attract visitors, skilled talent and businesses to Wellington. The videos aim to set Wellington apart as a great place to live, work, visit and do business.

Storybox helmed the whole process from concept to completion, bringing some of the unique qualities of Wellington to the stories, wrapping it up in a sense of humour that’s distinctive and authentic.

“We were delighted to work with Storybox to help us craft and create The Wellington Story short film series. The team are fantastic to work with – they delivered on time, to budget and totally understood what we were trying to achieve.”
