Creative Videos for Business & Events
Storylight is a Christchurch-based video production agency, predominantly working with Canterbury businesses and organisations.
Michael Kircher will work with you throughout the entire video production process; from brainstorming and scripting, to directing, filming and editing.
Storylight can also adapt to the changing needs of video projects, by contracting additional video production crew, and collaborating with local creatives and marketing strategists.
Videographer | Director | Editor
I have 14 years’ experience in video production and have relished working on an eclectic range of projects in Christchurch, New Zealand and internationally.
What makes me unusual, is that I am able to script, direct, film and edit – I can oversee your video start to finish, without needing to outsource video production.
My wide-ranging videography experience includes working on documentaries and television shows, national and international sports events.
Current – for various New Zealand video production agencies.

Life outside Storylight
Aside from family time, I love skiing, skateboarding and gardening. On the rare occasions I sit still long enough, I listen to podcasts about media, sustainability, horticulture, mindfulness, and parenting – all topics I’m passionate about.
I especially enjoy combining these interests with my Storylight video production work.
