Papy3D Productions is a french production company specialized in animation films, founded in 2006.[1] It was mainly created by animation directors including Gilles Cuvelier, Franck Dion and Sarah Van Den Boom. Jérémy Clapin and Pierre Caillet joined the list of shareholders in 2011.
The company produces mainly animated films targeting teenager and adult public, though many of its films can be watched by younger audience. It deals with all animation techniques, working with specialized studios depending on the film requirements.


Papy3D Productions was created by animation directors and at first only produced films made by its founders. It's only in 2013, after seven years, that the first external director, Phuong Mai Nguyen was produced by the company. Since then, five other external directors have been produced, including two first films.

The company regularly collaborates with other structures : thirteen of the produced films were completely or partially animated in the Hellemmes-based Studio Train-Train in the north of France; several films were co-produced either locally with JPL Films in Brittany, or internationally, with Hodgson Films and Atom Art. Most of the films were broadcasted on one of the french national channels : Arte France, Canal +, France 2 and France 3.

Short films programs constituted of Papy3D productions have been screened in several international festivals.[2][3][4]

Richard Van Den Boom, manager of the company, has also been part of the Jury of the Annecy International Animation Festival in 2014.[5]
