Who Are We?

Whalebone Films was started by Chloe White and Will Davies in 2014. We are a film production company creating a versatile range of documentary content for online, tv and radio.

We work with a diverse range of clients, from arts organisations, to development charities, from broadcasters, to local councils. Our aim is to make high-quality, creative and engaging documentaries that we can feel proud of and that suits the needs and brief of our clients.

Through our work we've been lucky enough to film all over the world, from Cambodia, to Peru, Japan, to Senegal and we've met some incredible people along the way.

Our other speciality is running fun and informative film-making and photography workshops to groups of all ages.

Why Whalebone?

Whales and dolphins have a bone buried deep within each flank which is completely surrounded by muscle and isolated from the rest of the skeleton. These bones vary in size and position from one species to another but they invariably serve no function.

The common ancestors of all whales lived on the land, walked on four legs and looked something like a hippo. We know this because as sea mammals, whales breath air and bare living young whom the mother nurses with milk, unlike water-breathing fish. Another clue is in those mysterious bones hidden in the flesh which are all that is left of the whale’s back legs.

These little bones are beautiful and enlightening - qualities we hope to emulate in our films.
