We offer full professional support to film-makers shooting in Egypt, Middle East and Africa, through all three phases of the production process: pre-production, production and post-production.
Due to the rapid growth in the film and TV industry in Egypt and the international increasing interest in Egyptian location to shoot feature films, documentaries and commercials the Egyptian market has expanded to fulfill the increasing demand on the high quality equipment required by filmmakers.
Having among our team one of Egypt’s most professional young Director of Photography(D.P) gives us an edge in equipment rental for many reasons. First, having an extensive first hand experience with most if not all ranges of the highly professional equipment in the local market allows us to assess the durability and reliance of the gear that we believe is best suited for your production which at all time is the finest new equipment and accessories available in Egypt. From our experience, making such accurate decisions when renting equipment can always minimize on-location unnecessary delays or problems.
Now comes your part of the job where you have to provide us along with your team of director of photography (DP), sound engineer and your director with a detailed list of the gear you require for shooting in Egypt.
