We love South Africa and have been lucky enough to make many short films for South Africa Tourism showing the beauty of the land and people seen through the eyes of internationally renowned National Geographic photographers.
We have made many friends and built up a great network of very experienced production contacts across South Africa and can offer film opportunities and production services at all levels in this great country.

These films are part of an ongoing collaboration between Rolex and National Geographic celebrating some of the world's most amazing explorers.
Anglo Filming has been privileged to work with visionary underwater experts like Sylvia Earle and the late Henri Delauze to a new generation of explorers like Ghislain Bardout.
Ghislain Bardout: dir. Richard Max
Sylvia Earle, David Doubilet: dir. Christopher Purcell
Anglo Filming caught up with expedition leader Ghislain Bardout after his return from an amazing 800km journey both over and under the North Pole.
Sylvia Earle is one of the world's pre-eminent oceanographers and one of National Geographic's Explorers in Residence. She is a multiple award winning pioneer, author, scientist and campaigner.
The late Henri Delauze was a pioneer of undersea exploration. He worked with Jaques Cousteau in the 1950s and founded Comex the undersea engineering and exploration company in 1961.
Anglo Filming joined Adam Ravetch on the edge of the Arctic Circle while completing his amazing 3D film on Polar Bears and learned how the Rolex Our World Underwater Scholarship changed his life.
David Doubilet is a master of underwater photography. His work has taken him to freshwater ecosystems such as Botswana's Okavango Delta and Canada's St. Lawrence River. He has photographed stingrays, sponges, and sleeping sharks in the Caribbean as well as shipwrecks in the South Pacific, the Atlantic, and at Pearl Harbor.
Anglo Filming sent small teams of film-makers into amazing fragile ecosystems all around the world for this series about UN biospheres for National Geographic Channel and Star Alliance.
The actual filming ended up having to take place in a very tight window with Anglo Filming coordinating teams shooting in India, Tanzania and America simultaneously.

Chateau la Fite
Anglo Filming in association with Sharp Cookies delivered an exciting 4D experience film, which has opened as part of the refurbishment and re-opening of the Blackpool Tower, Lancashire. The 4D experience is comprised of a 3D film, 7.1 surround sound as well as physical effects such as snow, rain, smells, a vibrating floor and others.
It is Anglo Filming’s second major Stereoscopic project and our most complicated project to date. We combined a major green screen shoot involving a scale reconstruction of part of Blackpool Tower, 3D aerial filming, reconstruction of period dance sequences in Blackpool Ballroom and extensive CGI reconstruction.

The making of our 4D special for the re-opening of Blackpool Tower. State of the art 3D, special effects, a big studio build and aerial filming
Marco Ammannati created a strikingly original new look for Discovery HD Channel. After extensive preparation and testing we filmed seven idents over three days in studios and an underwater tank. Divers, hedgehogs and Chinese noodle making masters were all filmed on nearly 30 rolls of 35mm then mastered to HD D5 for maximum quality.
This ad was filmed in Tenerife for Samsung and National Geographic Channel. It involved a complicated week-long, multiple location shoot with up to 40 crew. 3D filming was using twin Panasonic Genesis cameras on an Element Technika rig.
