    I am shooting a documentary/ current affair type in Kinshasa, Congo in March.

    I would love to find out about all local production companies, fixers and film crew.

    Any advise or contacts would be very appreciated.

    Many thanks,

    Hi Julia,

    We are based in Kenya and have filmed in kinshasa and other parts of DRC extensively for the past few years. We can provide you with full crewing and equipment from here. Let me have your thoughts.

    I had posted a mail 2 days earlier too and just wanted to tell you that if you wanted to film ‘ blabk africans ‘ and create something like Congo, you can do it here in Gujarat ( India ). Have done it earler when an international company wanted to create Ghana. Please see attached pictures of the type ofpeople available

    Dear Julia,

    Unfortunately a reliable service company, or fixer, in the Congo is not an easy request… I have investigated this before for other clients and learned that to film in the Congo you need to bring all your support from Kenya… this said, GPN (Global Production Network) represents an excellent company in Kenya and I can assist you…

    Please drop me a line when convenient.
