About

Ane Skak at the Stand Out Festival, London, UK

Storytelling across media platforms


Immersive Stories was founded by Ane Skak in 2017 after a career centered around storytelling, journalism and co-creation in film, television, radio, podcast, online and in design.


Founders statement:

I have been an editor and producer at the national Danish Broadcaster, DR for 12 years, event manager at Nordisk Film Cinemas and for four years I was a film festival director at the National Danish Film Institute, DFI. 


I have produced large scale events reaching a world-wide audience, created cross media projects with a high level of user engagement, dived into investigative journalism, made traditional documentaries and won Danish and international prizes along the way.


Now I run my own production company and for me it feels like everything has come together when I found my focus in new digital formats and in flexible production setups. I enjoy the challenge of exploring ever emerging formats providing new ways of telling an engaging story. This is the heart of Immersive Stories.  

The big WHY, Elvis and a good network

Immersive Stories is based on founder Ane Skak's life long experience in broadcast (DR), film (Danish Film Institute) and design thinking (Interactive Institute, Sweden) and network of professionals and partners established during the years. 

I run Immersive Stories from a dual perspective. After over a decade in broadcasting I have developed strong skills in storytelling, reaching target groups, and concentrating on the big “Why”.


A decade working with co-creation and user centered innovation has developed my skills in identifying/rethinking user needs, keeping an explorative approach and managing a diverse group of professionals towards a shared goal.

I was born the year after Elvis performed ‘Walk a Mile in My Shoes’ in Las Vegas in 1970.


To be able to walk in someone else's shoes is a core value for me. I’m passionate about creating stories and presenting content to enable the audience to see the world from a different perspective and make a personal connection based on empathy, engagement and understanding.

Immersive Stories is based on a diverse and highly competent network of professionals with photographers, editors, sound engineers, graphic designers, and 3D visual artist close at hand.


For each production I as a producer set the exact team needed, it being a full-house high end production team or a one-woman set up. Thereby Immersive Stories is a very dynamic and efficient production company making a sound use of your resources.
