Africa Filming Location Hunting, Location Hunting, Location Scouts and Location Filming:-We have location scouts to find and photograph locations for their productions of feature films and short films, television commercials and television shows, documentary films, corporate video, print advertising photography and editorial photography. Apart for the foregoing we also offer event planning and arrange meetings between the local and licensing authorities and our clients for seamless integration of the services we offer.
We help you realize the challenges posed by the logistics of shooting in different locale, transporting staff and equipment and gauging the weather patterns that might interfere with shoots and thereby creating timeline disruptions for production. Claudious Tours assists in securing filming licenses in the countries where preproduction scouting and filming is required. We also source local actors and other personnel needed for the creation of short films and feature films, television shows and television commercials, documentary films, corporate video, print advertising photography and editorial photography.
We offer our services throughout the East African countries of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and Southern Sudan for both local and foreign film production firms; ensuring that at the end of every shoot the environment is left in its former condition without degradation, and where possible, Claudious Tours put in place ecological teams to monitor and evaluate the social and environmental impact while using mitigating measures to effect minimum environmental interference at shooting locales.
In location hunting it is important to note that times and seasons change the appearance of a filming location and part of our work is to advise of the best time to filming for certain results. This is in respect of lighting, weather, dryness or wetness, drought, floods of a location in tedium with the script and the best means to transfer equipment and personnel to shooting sites. Security cannot be left out of such considerations and we have the latest information of the security situation at each shooting location. Our links with the security apparatus of the countries where we scout also offer us adequate security before and after a shoot.
Despite the fact that movies such as “Eye in the Sky” and “Man Eaters of Tsavo” are Kenyan stories the locations where they were shot are in Southern Africa. This is because for years the government did not notice the benefits of filming in the country and instead were charging exorbitant fees for the licensing of films shot in Kenya.
Other films that joined the band-wagon of Kenyan stories filmed elsewhere include the following:-
Despite the above the following films still brought renown to Kenya:-
Riverwood Academy Awards, a cousin of the Kalasha Film and TV awards, has come of age and regularly offers the most outstanding film makers and actors awards thus raising the local filming standards and ensuring that Kenya’s place on the Global Filming map is maintained. There was a time Kenya was the premier filming destination in Africa.
