Chocolate Films is an innovative video production company, with bases in London and Glasgow and a global reach. We’re a socially responsible video agency – run as a social enterprise.
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 more than 20, with bases in London and Glasgow, satellite offices in Germany, Portugal, Italy and the USA, and an international network that gives us a much wider reach without compromising our values.
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 time-lapse cameras, 360 cameras and drones. 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 in all environments.
We work with and develop the talent of our in-house, full-time staff, rather than working with freelancers. As a client, you will receive the help of dedicated producers and filmmakers in each project from start to end, all of whom have up-to-date DBS checks and safeguarding training, with many also being qualified first aiders. Team members are empowered to take ownership of their projects and to learn at each stage.
Coverage in Germany, Italy, Portugal, USA and More
We have developed satellite offices in Berlin, Porto, Sardinia and New York to complement our London and Glasgow bases, as well as reliable partner production companies in 22 countries, from Kenya to Vietnam. This greatly expands our operating area and the scope of how we can support businesses. In each of these bases we have a trusted and talented representative with local knowledge, and access to the equipment and crews needed to make great things happen. As well as giving you a much greater creative freedom, this cost-effective solution is competitively priced by the hour or the day, allowing you to produce great content with ease and comfort.
Working at Chocolate Films
Chocolate Films exists to empower unique views and approaches, both from our clients and from within our team. In doing so we are able to offer a much more varied range of services and come up with new ideas in the process, all from within our in-house team. We work with people from a wide range of backgrounds, with each and every one of them contributing to the work that helps turn concepts into reality.
