Queens Gallery, Buckingham Palace
How did the Royal Family collect a world-class collection of Dutch Master paintings? And how did Vermeer’s ’The Music Lesson’ come to be part of it. A short film in the current exhibition investigates this and more.
The Science Museum
Information Age Gallery
How was Google Earth created? Chocolate Films provided the post-production services for a short film in the permanent Information Age gallery at the Science Museum. We were also invited to film the opening of the gallery, and to capture Her Majesty the Queen sending her first ever tweet, 76 years after The Queen’s first visit to the museum!
Museum of London, Docklands
Sea To the City
In early 2015, we were commissioned to produce a film for the beginning of the permanent exhibition at the Museum of London Docklands. The result was this 6 minute portrait of the Thames from the estuary all the way down to the Museum itself. The film was shot over six weeks in every possible way, including filming from a helicopter and a yacht. It’s also why we have several pairs of wellies in our office.
For two years, Chocolate Films worked with the digital learning team at Tate on a series of films that look at the different ways that artists and academics access the Tate Archives. The films are currently being screened in a temporary exhibition in the learning gallery at Tate Britain.
London Transport Museum
What will the future of London Transport be like. The London Transport Museum works with students from the Royal College of Art to look forward into how London will be. Shot against a green screen, the latest version was just filmed and will replace the current film in the next couple of months.
