A Talented Team Of Exhibition Content Creators

When we produce content for exhibitions, our main goal is to assist the curators and exhibition designers to tell the story of the exhibition as effectively as possible. Our talented and varied creative team will use their skill and creativity to produce content in a range of styles and using a range of techniques.

For many exhibitions we have created documentary content to enhance interpretation, but exhibition AV can go so much further. We create large scale image installations and soundscapes, animated explainers, historical re-enactments, time-lapse films, video mapping, entertaining interactives and much much more. Get in touch to discuss how we can help you.

A Collaborative Video Production Experience

When working on exhibition content, we value the collaboration with the museum and gallery team. We will work with you to devise the best route from idea to delivery, in relation to both the process and the output itself. Our team will do what it takes to capture the best content, whether installing ourselves on Rainham marshes at 3am to capture the perfect sunrise or recreating a WWII Scramble with heritage aeroplanes.

For many productions we enjoy exploring wider collaboration possibilities. We often co-produce content with members of the community, as evidenced by our work in permanent galleries at the Science Museum, Horniman Museum, the Imperial War Museum and more. Our team are all experienced at working in educational environments and bring their workshop experience to these productions to create stunning results.

Two Decades Exhibition Video Content Production

Chocolate Films has been a leader in the field of museum and gallery exhibition content for over 20 years. We have worked with almost every major museum in London, plus museums in Scotland, Germany, Italy, the United States and the Middle East.

Our talented team are passionate about the sector. We have filmmakers with backgrounds in history, art history and curation among our team, and they bring their diligence and knowledge to your projects.

We understand how impactful good AV can have on the flow of an exhibition. Get in touch to find out how we can help you.

"Dominating the room is a panoramic film showing the movement of the sun over a silvery river meander in Rainham marshes. It looks like a Cuyp painting, all milk-dense mist, a solitary plodding cow, reeds scissoring in the breeze. The ‘action’ here is the sky, which blooms mesmerically: first rosy gold, then violet, then a rich, ancient blue. Its soundtrack – birdsong and some other unidentifiable but bone-buzzingly deep noise – cast a spell from which I was reluctant to surface. "

Review of Havering Hoard exhibition at Museum of London Docklands

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...

I work at Cystic Fibrosis Trust and we are delighted with the animation Chocolate Films created for us. It met the brief and has helped us to explain our activities to current and future partners. Chocolate Films were a pleasure to work with and we appreciated their flexibility in working to a very tight timescale.

Great working with Chocolate Films and the team for our new program. Nikita was a great point of content and we had a blast at the filming studio with everyone. Thank you everyone for your work on this project!

We commissioned Chocolate films to complete a BTS film as a promotional film for our Level 4 foundation course. We were out on location with our own 3 short films with our most senior students, and we needed an extra crew to capture all that was happening on set. They were thoughtful, efficient and proactive. Capturing some great interviews and BTS (thanks Elton!), weaving it into a great promotional film for us. Lucia steered the project beautifully from start to finish (thanks Nikita too). We’ve worked with Chocolate films before and would happily do so in the future. Chloe – London Screen Academy

I filmed a green screen production using sound and it came out great. Lucia and Nikka are lovely and happy to help, the facilities are exactly what I needed (there’s also a make-up room) and it was easy to get to.

Chocolate films produced a fun promotional video for us as part of our 80th anniversary. They were professional with clear communication, and the project was delivered to time.

The video content creation workshop offered by Chocolate Films was incredibly useful, packed full of handy tips on how to create compelling videos with the minimum equipment and time! The space is great and the team were welcoming, generous with their knowledge and clearly enthusiastic about what they do.
HUGE round of applause for the Chocolate Films team! We attended their ‘Using Video for Business’ Workshop, which they so kindly offered free of charge for local businesses in the Wandsworth area. Hosted at their lovely new Nine Elms studio space, we had a great morning of learning, chatting over tea and coffee. They are a really delightful and organised company that we hope to work with going forward, and we would love to see the team at one of our cookery classes one day! Ax

I joined other small business owners, founders and entrepreneurs for a morning workshop on how to create content, shoot and edit footage. The studio was so welcoming and the team gave some fantastic advice whether it was your first foray into film making or had been trying for a while but stuck with certain elements. The workshop was fun, enjoyable and informative with a good balance between information and hands on practice. They made something quite complex seem very accessable. The teams enthusiasm for their craft is infectious.

Chocolate Films did outstanding work on the Seido Karate London promo. They were able to capture the spirit of the Dojo with their visuals and presentation. The interviews were professional and conducted expertly. Overall outstanding work!

I work for the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families and we commissioned Chocolate films to make 3 films to support the training of mental health workers.The Chocolate films team have been highly professional, skilled and excellent to work alongside. Right from the beginning where we met to share our plans and discuss the potential project, the team have offered creative thinking, ideas and helped us to build a clear vision for the films. The script process felt easy and collaborative. The team have also provided a very clear structure and reliability around time scales.As the film making process began we worked closely around the development of scripts and casting of actors. Chocolate films have been very responsive and active in supporting us (at the Anna Freud centre) to work to the deadlines whilst showing a really high level of knowledge around the process and steps needed.The actual filming days were a pleasure to be involved with and the team has been very impressive to see in action, particularly in their ability to work together, to include me in their process whilst also attending very carefully to the details needed for the films to be high quality.I would highly recommend Chocolate films and would certainly commission them again
