Documentaries and Corporate Films

We understand how to tell a story through video. Whether we're exploring an artists process, demonstrating the difference a charity makes or  explaining what makes a company tick we relish the chance to really get to know our subjects and create a film that's informative and emotionally engaging.

Our mini-documentaries have been used as the centre-piece of company websites, presented at events (from conferences, sales pitches all the way to the United Nations building in New York), formed the centre-piece of digital comms sales strategy, shown at schools and colleges and much more.

So if you want to tell your story and aren't quite sure where to start get in touch and we can make it happen.

Bee in the City


Manchester Science Partnerships  /  2018

Taking places in the Summer of 2018, Bee in the City was Manchester's largest ever public art display. With over 100 giant bees in the city, their trails took you to the city's historical landmarks and undiscovered gems. We created a film about the Manchester Science Partnership's Bee, BZZX, which was located outside the Bright Building at Manchester Science Park. It used recycled IoT tech sensors from Cisco and 3D printed elements from MSP customer, DiceyTech. Local Manchester artist, KrikSix brought BZZX to life - inspired by Transformers' character Bumblebee and robotics.

Liverpool Football Club Foundation

LFC  /  2017
The Liverpool Football Club Foundation was rebranding and wanted to create a film that would communicate to the people of Liverpool exactly who they were and the difference they made to people's lives across Liverpool. We created a lively, dynamic film that combined action sequences with heart-warming interviews and demonstrated the extent to which the charity made lives better and reflected the strong, community ethos of the Club.

Tiree Wind Turbine Film

The Co-operative   /  2010
The Co-operative Bank approached us to create a short documentary about the community wind-farms it was helping to set-up across Scotland. We spent time with the communities, speaking to farmers, residents, organisers and more to create a warm, friendly film which captured the difference these wind-farm initiatives were making across the region.

The Bus Driver's Story

Transport for Greater Manchester & TravelSafe  /  2018
Paper Films created a series of educational films for use in schools across Greater Manchester to help encourage children to treat bus and tram drivers, ticket collectors and other transport professionals with respect. The films focused on individual's stories and needed to be both hard-hitting and sympathetic; demonstrating to the viewer that the subject is a real person with emotions and feelings.
