  • Does anyone know of a similar location to the Niger Delta for filming. We are looking for the stark contrast of lush jungle and venting oil pipes and other extreme gv’s but are being advised to avoid the delta area due to MEND. Any suggestions welcome. We could go to Thailand or Brazil or somewhere else in the equatorial band which wouldn’t be as hazardous possibly?
    Thanks

    Hello Judy,

    The KwaZulu Natal (Durban) sub-tropical coast of South Africa may provide locations which will suit your brief. There are many rivers leading to the ocean, some fairly (honestly) polluted areas, informal settlements and subtropical vegetation and ample available talent to choose from.

    First thought is Trinidad. Tropical, jungle vegetation and a booming oil and natural gas industry. Cast would also be good. Please contact

    Hi Judy, we have the locations on both West and East coast in Thailand. Perhaps you could contact me at ric@locationthailand.com. My CV is on http://www.ukscreen.com/crew/riclawes. Kind regards, Ric Lawes Producer – Location Thailand.

    Hello, I am Luis Lago a cuban producer. There are in Cuba beatiful jungles and oil pipes but not together. Close to the jungle there are other kind of factories and maybe we can chage to look like oil factory. prodluislago@yahoo.com

    Hi Judy:

    We feel that we have the ideal location for you here in Belize. Just a few years ago oil was discovered and it is in the middle of lush jungle vegetation. In addition we have oil pipes running to a newly built refinery. All this is next to one of the largest rivers in the country. On the production side, we can provide all the services, equipment etc. that you would need.
