Location Scouting

Location Scouting

At Eco Film Fixers, we know that for any filming project to be successful, one needs to do proper location scouting and preparation before the actual shooting and arrival of film crews. We are a local fixer company conversant in all filming in locations in Uganda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Ethiopia, Zambia, Namibia, the DRC, and Kenya. With many years of experience fixing in all these areas and research done together with extensive knowledge of our country to provide you with the best location for your filming.

On this website, we have tried to outline several filming locations depending on interests but when contacted, our local fixers will pursue location scouting in line with your filming interests.

Some film crews and production companies contact us when already have some ideas in mind while others do so when they know what they want but are unsure of where to find it in Uganda. In whichever situation you are in, you need not as this is what we do best and we will definitely scout all possible locations in Uganda, Kenya, South Sudan, Tanzania, Burundi, DR Congo, and Rwanda, to provide you with several options from which you will select where to do your filming.

Depending on the duration of your filming, location scouting may take some time as we may have to send our fixers to the field to take current pictures of any given location, to establish filming conditions in the very given location being scouted. We may have to establish the distance, where there is appropriate accommodation properties, where the area is accessible or not, if it has electricity or not and as such, it is always better to contact as early enough to make sure we look at the pros and cons of the location in question and ensure to have the right solutions for you come the time of the shoot. Whether you are interested in filming wildlife in national park, gorilla and chimpanzees, filming in slums or urban setups, just drop us an email and we plan how we will execute your location scouting schedule.

Even for locations that you have never been to, we are the advanced team that goes now in place to ensure that the road map you are going to embark on is one that is feasible and can be archived. Depending on the nature of the shoot, scouting takes 3-5 days in place to collect all information and variables based on the sample scale that you give us.
