Documentary Films

Real stories that make a real impact.

How we help

Sometimes the most powerful stories are the ones right in front of you

Not every powerful story is fictional. In fact, some of the most impactful stories ever told have been factual. Documentary films tell the stories of what’s in front of us, but are just as engaging and moving as fictional ones. As documentary filmmakers, we create documentary films that bring human stories to life for audiences and highlight innovation, achievement and the need for taking action.

Project and programme films

Social impact projects change lives. To make sure that they can continue, their stories need to be told. With a documentary film, you can share the often complex narratives of these projects with your audience and show the world the impact these projects make.

Social issue films

When you’re looking to highlight a particular issue and make a change in the world, you need a tool to engage with people and find new audiences. A documentary can give a clear picture of the issue at hand. It can outline key points, tell personal stories and compel others to take action and make change.

Branded content

People are naturally perceptive, and will subconsciously pull things out of a story. A story doesn’t have to be direct to make an impact on them. Branded content tells stories that often aren’t directly about your brand, but, through subtle messaging, connect your audience with your brand.

  • "Neck of the Woods were asked to cover the days building up to a triple marathon event in aid of Robbie's Rehab in the summer of 2020. They were empathetic with the highly emotive subject-matter of the charity's joint aims of raising money for charity and the legacy of Robbie himself who had formed the charity but not seen its fruition. Their interviews, filming and editing were fast and effective. They were a pleasure to work with and the resulting short film is excellent. Punctual, mobile and client-oriented, I would recommend them without hesitation."
