OUR STORY

Rachel Wang and Mark Currie founded Chocolate Films in 2001, with a simple goal – to create a high quality video production company, with a clear social purpose. Chocolate Films is now a team of 17 people, working with a wide range of high profile clients. Our social purpose has never been stronger – we are one of the leading providers of video workshops in the UK.
