Our crews have travelled the world
Experience with filming in over 40 countries
Most video production companies can stake a claim that their production crews are widely-travelled and well versed in the logistical issues and challenges often associated with working and travelling with filming equipment overseas. Yet there is indeed some truth in the observation that many programme-makers ‘go everywhere, and see nothing’! Take One Productions however, has never even approached such a philosophy.
For the record, Take One Productions has indeed circled the globe many, many times, and has to-date filmed in over 40 countries worldwide. We have inevitably gained much experience along the miles we have travelled.
Our Work in Developing Nations
Take One Productions was selected by the Department for International Development (DFID) to film in many developing countries around the world. We were chosen not just because of our record in fulfilling the brief in terms of time and cost, but for our sensitivity of approach in situations where the presence of a film crew could easily become intrusive and even damaging.
The poverty portrayed in some of the images is unforgettable, as were the scenes shot in TB clinics, hospitals and displaced-persons’ camps. Our concern was genuine and, we like to think, was reflected in the integrity of the material we obtained.
Practicalities of Travel
The sheer physical effort involved in entering and leaving some of these countries, with equipment and personnel, would be defeating were it not for our ability and awareness to expect the unexpected.
