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 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

I had the pleasure of working with Chocolate Films for a corporate video campaign. From the offset, the team were professional, engaging, and quick to communicate. Rachel and Lucia worked with our vision and helped turn it into a reality, offering suggestions and expertise to help bring the story to life to a highly creative and timely manner.The video created a real buzz within the organisation and the feedback received has been fantastic. I would highly recommend Chocolate and look forward to working with them again in the future.

Make Listening Safe Campaign UK is an initiative of The World Health Organisation aimed at increasing the awareness of avoidable risks to hearing in those between 10 and 40 years of age, launched at an in person event in London on 1st November 2023.We needed the launch to be filmed and were lucky enough to be introduced to Chocolate Films who provided the crew and the equipment required.Our events team have informed me that the crew were a delight to work with and were very helpful.We were very impressed with the quality of the footage and were very surprised when we received it so quickly after the event, so we could edit it and get it out on to social media in a timely fashion.We have no hesitation in recommending Chocolate Films.Thank you for making the filming such a pain free experience.Stephen Wheatley | Chair – MLSC UK |

A friendly group of professional, talented film-makers who created some brilliant videos for us. Anna and Han were a pleasure to work with and were available to discuss the project whenever we needed it. The entire process was slick and efficient from start to finish – I would definitely recommend Chocolate Films for any film project.

A very professional team with flexibility and great understanding of the craft. The pre-production was straight forward but the dedication from the team on the day to capture lots of high quality footage of the event was admirable.The final outcomes were well edited and the revisions process was painless and fast. I highly recommend Chocolate Films for event and interview videography.
