Beautiful and informed factual storytelling made by award-winning documentary production company Chocolate Films
Chocolate films has been producing documentaries since the early 2000s. Our films have been seen across the world in cinemas, exhibitions and online. The diversity of work includes observational human stories and deeply researched historical and scientific content.
Our long-form documentaries have told the stories of football teams, lorry drivers, hair salons, new teachers and youth workers dealing with street violence. For each of these projects we have spent many months, and often years, capturing their lives and stories. We are currently half-way through a ten year documentary about a major construction project. Our company structure, with a full-time crew of dedicated filmmakers, is ideal for long-term documentary projects where we drop in and out of a story. Long-form documentaries produced by Chocolate Films have been screened at festivals and been released in cinemas.
Chocolate Films produces great looking documentary content in every continent – filming doctors in Japan, David Hockney by his pool in Los Angeles and a karate school in Syria. Our commitment to being net zero video production company means that we balance the need for content production. We produce and direct documentary content with our international partners, with satellite offices within the EU and US and a network of partner production companies across the world. Working this way reduces our carbon footprint and our client’s costs while maintaining quality.
At Chocolate Films we work hard to be a sustainable supplier. Over recent years we have reduced our carbon footprint by bringing in policies about travel, waste and power. And we offset the carbon that we’re not currently able to reduce, by contributing to planting trees in a sustainable forestry scheme. We also offer discounts on video production to organisations that are actively promoting sustainability.
The producers at Chocolate Films are available to talk through your project at a time that suits you. We’ll make sure we really understand your organisation and what you’re looking to achieve with video content. Following the discussion, we’ll send over a detailed proposal for the work you’re looking to commission.
Chocolate Films is opening a new purpose-built studio in 9 Elms, near Battersea Power Station and the US Embassy. This exciting new 77m2 space will be ideal for most charity, corporate, and documentary shoots. It’s 80m2, with soundproofing, great lighting and a comfortable dressing room. This will be the ideal space to film beautifully lit documentary interviews with excellent audio.
