From London’s rich and historical past, the now and the future, to Indian Innovation and French Impressionism; exhibitions at London’s museum’s and art galleries take you on a journey around the world and through history. At Chocolate Films, we’ve recently had the pleasure to make four trailers for amazing current exhibitions – allowing you to travel without escaping The Big Smoke.
Filming for The City is Ours at the Museum of London, made filmmaker Daniel rethink life in London: “As a Londoner myself, it was so interesting to hear from experts in their various fields what the city will potentially look like come the next 20 years. Filming this was a real eye opener and made me think about, and in a way prepare for, what the city will look and feel like in the not so distant future.”

On a bright day in June we got to explore the stunning Royal Mews, at Buckingham Palace. The resulting trailer comprises beautiful archive images mixed with our newly-shot footage to promote the Royal Mews as a must-see destination in London, both for international tourists and UK residents.

You will also see a series of exhibition films which we produced, about the Royal Mews which are on display inside.
