Equipment. Some camera, grip and lighting equipment can be found locally including cameras such as the BlackMagic Ursa, BlackMagic Pocket 6K, Panasonic GH5, Sony FS5.
Once you have your Film Permit our Tanzanian producer will hire a trusted local customs clearing agent to arrange for your equipment to legally enter the country. The cost of the bond is 10% of the value of the imported equipment, so bringing in your gear to Tanzania can be very expensive. Customs fees for bringing in even a small kit are usually around US$1,500. The bond is returned to you upon the gear’s departure from Tanzania.
Communication. Our Tanzanian fixer organises local cell phones and online communications to help you avoid the high roaming costs of calling to and from Africa.
Communication is key. Our agility and global experience allows us to customise the right communications systems for every shoot.
Web posted casting, scouting, and videoconferencing.
For clients that are unable to attend set we offer a virtual video village solution. This dedicated and secure high-resolution video streaming platform allows clients from one or multiple timezones to view setups without compromise and to participate in real-time with the team on set. Separate systems can be set up for the discrete conversations that are required to make a job run right. Working remotely with our local teams reduces your content production costs, turnaround times, carbon footprint, and risks associated with unpredictable global events.
