Hi all,
I'm just moving out for a commercial shoot in Kenya, equipment is coming from South Africa and i'm taking my 1st Ac with me. I have a chopper shoot with nose mount and quad bike shots. The co-prod company is Blue sky film which seems very good till this point. Anybody having experience shooting in Kenya i'll be glad to receive some comments. Any security issues or diseases that we should be informed of...thanks

best,

Hi Burak

I've shot in Kenya some years ago. It was a great experience. Blue Sky Prod were good.
Make sure you have all your jabs. Hepatitis A & B, Diphteria, Typhoid and so on. Check with your doctor. Are you going outside Nairobi?

Saw your Tryg commercial, very nicely shot. It's been showing a lot here in Denmark in a very shortened version. What's the music in spot?

Enjoy Kenya
Marcel

I worked on a commercial there in the 90's and the local technicians were friendly and efficient. Main worries were the hippos, but even then there tales of gangs robbing houses "mob handed".
