Work With Us


We believe (and have helped to prove) that the short documentary is the most powerful and efficient storytelling tool ever created. At Breakwater, we further that belief every day not only by making our own original films, but also by making films in collaboration with our esteemed clients and partners.

Many agencies and production companies sell docustyle branded content, but few, if any, can match Breakwater’s decade-long track record of consistently solving clients’ business challenges with impeccably crafted, emotional and award-winning short documentary filmmaking that audiences celebrate as entertainment that has touched them on the deepest level. 

It is that track record of working directly with clients to strike the fine balance between the interests of the brand, audience, filmmaking team and storyteller that has made Breakwater Studios the gold standard brand storytelling partner for discerning clients around the world.
