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 21, with bases in London, Glasgow and Berlin – an international network that gives us a much wider reach, without compromising our values.

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 as well as 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 from all environments.

Full-service Team

Chocolate Films chooses to 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 at each project from start to end, all of whom have up-to-date DBS checks and safeguard training, with many also being qualified first aiders. Team members are empowered to take ownership of their projects and to learn at each stage.


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 hugely 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 bring concepts to reality.

How Can We Help?


Chocolate Films is opening a new purpose-built studio in 9 Elms, near Battersea Power Station and the US Embassy.

It’s 80m2, with soundproofing, great lighting and a comfortable dressing room.  It will be available to use for shoots from Monday to Friday with both wet and dry hire available. Then at the weekends it will be open to the next generation of filmmakers, with workshops, clubs and experiences.
