Visas

Africa and the Middle East

The visa application process when filming on location differs from country to country. The visa type depends on the intended length of stay which is always clearly defined on the various country’s visa application websites. Documentation to have on hand before embarking on the visa applications include: A brief synopsis of the film, a copy of the bio page of your passport valid for no less than 30 days after the expiry date of intended visit, passport photos, a letter of invitation from the local production company in the country you plan to film in, your flight itinerary, proof of accommodation in the country you intend to visit, yellow fever card, proof of covid vaccination. In some cases, you might require a letter from the company you will be representing on the film production.

Filming Permits

When filming on location in Africa or the Middle East film permit applications require time. Our Line Producers and Film Fixers manage these applications, and our managing Producer will share a fact sheet outlining the requirements for this complex submission.

Locations

Our location managers have had years of experience in sourcing the very best locations based on location briefs from our clients. Film Location deck can be shared upon request.

The level of security varies from country to country from film location to film location. Our local Film Fixers will advise on the level of required security.

Equipment

Our local Line Producers have worked in the region for many years and have built databases and relationships with each and every film equipment supplier in the country. Should the region not have the required gear necessary we simply source it from our film production offices in neighbouring countries.

Flights

When traveling to a country in Africa or the Middle East to film on location, it is best that the international film production company handle their own flights, however all in country local flights should be booked by the Line Producer or Film Fixer in the country you will be filming in.

Managers

Our management team is made up of:

Executive Producers | Line Producers | Fixers | Field Producers | Production Managers | Researchers | Creative Producers

Post Production

In most cases international film production companies handle the post production in their country of origin. We do however offer full post production services.
