Although the high quality of work and international list of clients we continuously work with shows our level of professionalism and service, we do appreciate a special mention.
‘Working with Namib Films was a phenomenal experience throughout. Guy and Nadia’s diligence, hard work and encyclopaedic local knowledge allowed us to deliver a hugely ambitious shoot in the most challenging of circumstances. We can’t wait to work with Namib Films again. Thank you from everyone at Nutopia Productions.’
- Ronan Browne - Series Producer & Richard Evans - Senior Producer
Thanks once again for an amazing job. Absolutely loved working with Guy and the team. You made our lives so easy, wouldn’t want to do it any other way in Namibia!
- Charlie Hey - Executive Producer
We had a great experience shooting in Namibia with Namib Films. From the first day we contacted Nadia she responded quickly to our inquiries and managed our budget and creative expectations. We were given fantastic advice, a super crew and the end product exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend them and look forward to another opportunity to work together.

“I was so happy with everything. My previous travels when making this series has never been this structured. We also felt so safe with our location manager”.’
- Henrik Ahnborg - Series Director & Writer
We recently filmed in Swakopmund with Namib Films, and as a service company we know what goes into putting together a flawless production and Namib Films did just that. From the crew to catering it was an absolutely perfect job and experience, hopefully we will be back soon!

"Our shoot was challenging and the conditions were tough but Namib Films anticipated everything we needed from the start which left us free to focus on the creative rather than fretting about logistics and permits— everything was already taken care of.”

BBC2: Serious Desert
I would have no hesitation in recommending Namib Films for your requirements.
Having recently used them as a local production company for the BBC programme Serious Desert, I found them to be a hugely resourceful, responsive & efficient.
We sent 8 children & production team to the deserts of Namibia to film for a 6 part series for Children’s BBC, which involved the children trekking Rhino and building a Camel corral in various distant locations.
Namib Film provided everything from transport, filming permission, accommodation and local crew.
Namib Film’s extensive knowledge of local facilities and experience of working with film crews on major productions were a great asset to our series. Always friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble.

NHK CosmoMedia Europe
NHK CosmoMedia Europe would like to take a moment to thank Namib Film for their outstanding work on a live television broadcast for the 2012 New Year’s Eve program “Kohaku Uta Gassen (Red and White singing competition)” featuring a Japanese singer, MISIA. From the first contact, it was clear that we were in good hands and that Namib Film’s team, headed by Mr. Guy Nockles (Namibian Producer) and Ms. Elnette Pearson (Production Manager) were very capable.
All communication was clear, informative and prompt from start to finish. During pre-production, Namib Film organized and joined us on a recce to scout the various possible locations for the broadcast.
From the start, the subsequent live transmission ran like clockwork and we were able to achieve everything we set out to accomplish. This could only be achieved through the experience and local knowledge Namib Film possesses, as this production was logistically extremely challenging due to satellite uplinks in rural uninhabited areas, crews from all over the world, equipment from across borders and accommodation and catering in the most extreme environment.
The broadcast was watched by 40 million viewers and set a record for this show. We were exceptionally surprised and very pleased with the excellent and professional service we received from Namib Film. I would use Namib Film again in the future and would recommend them to other production companies.
- Keiko Matsuda - Production Manager
Flight 33 TV
I would like to highly recommend Namib Film. We have completed one project with them, and we decided to hire them again because of the excellent service they provided to us.
They are a professional company, who are very reliable, honest, and accessible. The time difference is great as we are in Los Angeles, but we could reach them at any time. They went out of their way to secure locations for us and worked hard to get all the documents and visas. Their personnel work hard and are easy to work with.
I can’t say enough good things about them. We are pleased to provide a reference on their behalf.

A Twentieth Century Fox: Flight Of The Phoenix
I cannot speak highly enough of Namib Film: they are the real deal and no one can touch them in that part of the globe. From interaction with Government Agencies to day-to-day production, through the handling of massive Special Effects sequences to the delicate and comprehensive attention to detail when dealing with Hollywood star, Namib Film came through for us with flying colors.
- John Moore - Director

Namib Film provided an extremely well organized and friendly infrastructure for the Art Department on " Flight of the Phoenix". I was impressed not only with the efficiency of the office, but the professional crew they provided, making our work so much easier to perform.

Everybody on the team absolutely adored filming in Namibia and we are so grateful to you for the incredible access you gave us.without you, there is no way we could have pulled so much material together in such a short space of time and i will certainly be recommending you to anyone else who wants to film out there- you all work tirelessly for the best result possible.

We have worked with dozen of production companies around the world and can tell you without a doubt that Namib Films is one of the very best. During story development and pre-production, they understood our needs and helped us make wise decisions according to our budget. In the field, they kept us on schedule and provided incredibly detailed local expertise. Our production needs were thought of taken care of at every turn. On top of that, the entire staff at Namib Films was a joy to work with.

It was last year that we worked with Namib Films. I can tell you that the company is very experienced and the crews are very responsible. During the story pre-production, they help us a lot to meet our needs and helped us make wise decisions according the budget. We should thank Nadia and Guy for the great patience especially when we had the trouble with visa. They gave us correct suggestion and offered the right way to meet our needs.
Their crew are also skilled with their jobs and helped us a lot.
In one word, Namib Films is worth believing.
