THE CHOCOLATE FILMS STORY

Rachel Wang and Mark Currie founded Chocolate Films in 2001, with a simple goal – to build a high quality video production company with a clear social purpose. We are now a team of 26, based in London, Glasgow and Berlin. Chocolate Films aims to transform lives through film, by creating high-impact documentaries, promotional videos and event films for our clients and by empowering people through filmmaking workshops.

In-house Equipment

Chocolate Films has a large range of kit, including the most up-to-date camera equipment and accessories. We use a wide selection of cameras, from Canon and Sony cinema cameras to long-term time lapse cameras. Our lighting kits have the capacity to illuminate spaces from small studios to large warehouses. And we have everything from drones to gimbals to deliver you amazing moving footage from all environments.

Full-service Team

Chocolate Films chooses to work with and develop the talent of full-time staff, rather than working with freelancers. As a client, you will receive the help of dedicated producers and filmmakers at each project from start to end. Team members are empowered to take ownership of their projects and to learn at each stage.
