Every museum object or artwork has a story to tell. This could be about its provenance, its historical significance or even its restoration. Using documentary can help your audience learn more about your collection and feel more connected to your organisation.

Chocolate Films has produced documentaries for some of the biggest names in the Arts and Culture sector, including the British Library, the British Museum, the Science Museum, The Wallace Collection and the Royal Collection. Our documentaries have won both national and international awards and our years of experience mean that we can produce the perfect film for your needs.

With experience ranging from creating historical documentaries about the famous Waterloo Chamber at Windsor Castle, to documenting the decommissioning of the Ferranti Pegasus Supercomputer at the Science Museum, we have the capabilities to tell your story how it should be told. Moreover, we have worked closely with conservationists to document the restoration of a variety of artefacts, from the gold binding of books to the restoration of huge ornate chandeliers.

Our approachable and multi talented team can draw on their wealth of filmmaking experience to secure archive footage, vox-pop, interviews and testimonials with whoever the key figures are that you would like included within your film.

With a wealth of skills within the Chocolate Films teams we can also provide animation, motion graphics, time lapse photography and more to help make your documentary engaging to all audiences and, most importantly, as unique as the story you are telling.

Client Testimonials

They had these silent films of people working with gold leaf that are absolutely mesmeric and that almost felt like an installation. It really is something to watch, I mean I stood there for quite some time staring...
