Kenya is a ‘world within a country’, and Nairobi, the capital, is the modern business hub. Kenya is dynamic, multicultural, always moving, and full of contrasts. Whatever you’re looking for in Africa, Kenya has it.
A two-hour drive north from Nairobi will find you thick rain forest with freezing nighttime temperatures. A two-hour drive south will find you on a salt flat stretching to the horizon and beyond an arid desert with temperatures often in excess of 45 degrees Centigrade. We have arguably the world’s top wildlife and marine reserves and some of Africa’s best beaches. While we don’t have Africa’s highest mountain, we do have the best view of it…In short, Kenya has physical diversity and almost certainly the location you’re looking for.
Our weather and climate are predictable and conducive to film planning. We have two harvests of wheat and barley a year, so if you’ve missed the European harvest and need rolling wheat fields, come to Kenya. Likewise if you need a traditional Arab town with dhows that looks as it did five centuries ago.
Ginger and Guy Wilson have access to some of the best–trained crews in Africa. They will support your filming in Kenya and across Africa in some of the most exciting, challenging, and fresh locations on the continent. If you’re thinking of filming in Africa, the chances are we already know the terrain first-hand.
We’ve provided shoot support in countries further afield like Uganda, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Sudan, DRC, and Senegal. For example, we serviced the Ethiopian unit of Clash of the Titans in Ethiopia’s Danakil depression, known as the hottest inhabited place on earth.
Our commercial credits span work not only in Kenya but also countries like Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and Algeria for brands including Guinness, Smirnoff, Barclays Premier League, and Nike.
Internationally acclaimed filmmakers who have worked with us include Tom Tykwer (Perfume), The Wachowskis, Alejandro González Iñárritu, plus wildlife photographer Nick Brandt and the Gates Foundation.
We have collaborated with One Fine Day Films to produce multiple films, including Something Necessary (2013), Veve (2014), and the internationally acclaimed Nairobi Half Life (2012), which became Kenya’s first ever submission to The Academy Awards.
