What We Offer
As filmmakers we know what it takes to get a production off the road. Africa Underwater is a registered Filming Agent with the Kenya Film Commission and can sort out all filming permits including those form the Kenya Wildlife Service to film in National Parks. With our experience along the Kenyan coast we are well equipped to scout locations and organise filming logistics.
We have grown up in the ocean, it is our second home and we have spent years honing our skills to be able to capture unique, captivating footage while also respecting the environment and animals we interact with. We have filmed while free diving, scuba diving, topside on boats and everything in-between for various clients including the BBC NHU and we have had our productions supported by the National Geographic Society amongst others.
From editing short form to feature length documentaries, educational films and supporting materials to social media content and campaigns. We are well equipped to deliver award winning and impactful content for a variety of clients. We can also narrate, as well as produce original film scores and sound effects to bring that extra impact to your productions.
