  • Hi – I’m a producer with the BBC, currently planning a 2 week documentary shoot in American Samoa (Islands of Tutuila and Ta’u), in late May / early June. I have a head full of logistical questions (permits, accommodation, transport, climate, filming locals etc). If there is anyone who has filmed in American Samoa, or knows of anyone there on the ground, who can help with our planning, I’d be delighted to hear from you. Regards. Pete Oxley

    Hi Peter,

    We are based in New Zealand and we often go up to Pacific islands. Please give us tons of questions about Western Samoa, we will try our best to give you all answers. Regards, Masa

    Suggest you email Catherine Madigan (Producer)
    or David Walker (Location Manager)
    I seem to remember they have direct experience with American Samoa

    Hi Peter, one of our staff is from Samoa and is well connected there and in American Samoa. There is noone, that we know of, in American Samoa who specialises in facilitating film shoots but she can put you onto people who can help. You can email us at Best regards, William Grieve.
