WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Josh Bennett, Show of Force, NY
Thank you and your team for hanging in their when things got tough and for helping make sure we got everything we needed and our shoot was a great success. Everyone on our Kenya team worked extremely hard and long hours, and my gratitude and appreciation go out to all of them. Thank you also for keeping a calm oversight over all the craziness!
Carine Sansregret, Productions Occupation Double, Montreal Canada.
I have been working on tv shows filmed around the world for the past 8 years and we all know how a good fixer can make or break a shoot.
Pontact Productions and especially Jenny and James, have proven once again how much they know their stuff and how easy they make everything.
They helped us greatly in pre-production with putting us in touch with the right people and they were able to facilitate every aspect of our shoot.
It is the third time we’ve worked with them while filming shows, from a 3 people crew to a 25 people crew they showed the same quality of work.
They respected our budget. They are nice to their own crew and are very respectful of the environment they are in.
If we could have such local allies at all our locations, our lives would be much easier.
I look forward to crossing their paths shortly.

"Nowhere in Africa"
Peter Herrmann (Producer)
"Kenya and movies are synonimous and have a shared history.
Hollywood shot classics in Kenya, such as "The Snows of Kilimajaro",
"Mogambo", "Hatari" and "Out of Africa",
always expensive but also very, very successful.
My secret weapon was Jenny Pont, our Kenyan Production Coordinator.
Since my first arrival she did almost everything to convince me ,
Caroline and Gernot that the film had to be made in Kenya.
She found our excellent professional crew, and had for every and any
problem a solution, or knew somebody to assist and help us.
She convinced me not to go to South.Africa.
Also, we saw the film " I Dreamed of Africa " and saw Pokot
tribespeople portrayed by Zulu's, unpleasant as it was ethnologically
During a party organized for us by our drivers and crew around a campfire
in the bush, I told them that I was extremely surprised to see such
a professionalism in Kenya. They showed me their country, and convinced
me that one can make a major film in Kenya. I would be very happy
to find such a team anywhere in the world."

Peter Kosminsky (Director)
"I have very happy memories of filming
in Kenya, not least the joy of that first shot in Mamburi when we

efficiently into their role ~ like water for a dry thirst after the
chaos of Ghana"
