Drinks brand Paper Boat has launched an animated film, conceptualised and executed by Humour Me – Branded Entertainment. The film of 4 minutes and 25 seconds is titled ‘Hope, the Boat’.
The film tells the story of hope, manifest in a paper boat. A man in a sailor’s hat stares longingly at a picture showing ‘The Great Indian Cruise’. A sheet of paper blows in with the wind through an open window. He makes a paper boat from it, labels it ‘My Great Cruise’ and lets it afloat in a puddle on the road. The film thereafter follows the paper boat’s adventurous journey, through pleasant and not-so-pleasant times and climes, before it lands up in the ocean. There, the paper boat sees the dream cruise ship, and its creator sailing on it. He invites the paper boat to join the cruise, sailing behind the larger ship, alongside several others like it. The film ends with the message, ‘Every dream is a journey. May your paper boat carry you far.’       
The film went live on the brand’s YouTube channel on 13 September 2016.
