We are Paper Boat Documentaries,

a small creative video production company. We produce original short films that reflect the passion and heart behind why people do what they do. 

Founded by partners Simon and Martha in 2016, after several years working in the television and advertising industry, we craved to go our own way. Having always been fascinated by people's stories, our idea was simple: we wanted to channel our creativity into producing short online films which would capture a compelling story in a honest, personal, concise and visually pleasing way.

We believe that the people and the reasons behind what they do are just as important as the product or service. We think it is important for a business or organisation to tell their story in their own words; with the view to connect with their supporters, customers and followers, present and future. A short film can be uploaded and embedded on to a website and social media platforms to instantly engage with viewers.

We have created various online films across Europe for people, businesses and organisations, which you can find on our Films page. Some of our previous clients have incorporated our films into marketing campaigns, others have commissioned us to create a video to promote their business, other clients simply want to share their feelings on what they are doing and the reasons why.  

As a creative company, we cover the whole production process from start to finish, from the organisation of the shoot to the upload of the final product.

Our simple idea still remains - for us, the most important part is the story. We believe everyone has got a story to tell, if you would like us to tell yours, please get in contact.

We’d love to hear from you.
