WHAT WE OFFER
International Productions in Kenya
Kenya is a land of incredible diversity…
We locate the perfect setting for your production.
For wildlife filming, we prefer to support community conservancies in the north of Kenya, where a unique form of wildlife conservation has taken hold. There are incredible stories and the wildlife viewing is raw and real. The communities are engaged in wildlife conservation and your filming fee goes directly to where they need it most.
We have done promotional films for the best lodges in Kenya and so can secure special deals for you and your crew, not available to other production companies.
We know cabins, castles, villages and metropole and where to find the most striking landscapes… mountains, beaches, deserts, rivers - you name it - we know where to find it and how to get there at the right time of year.
We can get you a filming license within minutes.
For more complicated permissions involving National Parks, municipalities and to obtain Special Passes for you to bring in a skeleton crew from abroad, please send an enquiry for a quotation listing all locations. Our network will ensure the quickest, cheapest but most reliable connection with all levels of governmental and community management to ensure you will not only be guided and approved but also secure.
At Feral, we try to ensure that all foreign productions employ at least one Kenyan citizen or resident for every foreign crew member.
We have it all here in Kenya. Just send your “kit list” and your quote from your country of origin - and we will do our best to match the price, saving you a fortune in import permits, shipping, insurance etc.
To name but a few bits and bobs, we have RED helium, Canon C100,300, Sony Fs7 cameras, CN-20 lens, GoPros, DJI drones, Gimbals, Sliders…
LOCAL CREW - we have an extensive catalog of Kenyan DOPs, director producers, camera-people, sound technicians, driver guides, hosts etc.

Sample promotional film for tourism
Che Shale Kite-surfing beach, Kenya
Feral Films have developed a low tech but high definition innovative technique for affordable geotagged aerial video and photographic land surveying with GIS mapping.
A full HD video flyover is created using 4K GoPros, mounted on a fixed wing aeroplane, synchronised with GPS tracking software and simple Google Earth animation techniques.
We create super high definition images by mounting a stills camera with a professional optic lens inside a custom built wing, which is triggered to fire at the precise frequency to compliment airspeed using custom software. Images are time-stamped and geotagged by our GIS team to build a highly accurate and detailed map.
The scope of usage for such a technique is enormous. We have already been using it for engineering and construction surveys for a variety of demands.
We see huge potential for it as an affordable way for conservation bodies to not only map out accurately unchartered territories but also as a foolproof standard for wildlife population censuses.
Working closely with university led techniques of data analysis, it would be easy to replicate this procedure and build in an error factor to allow for the most accurate censuses ever performed in this incredibly important field.
Sirai House, Borana Conservancy, Kenya
Feral Film was involved in pioneering the first ever combined aerial game count of the Laikipia plateau in Northern Kenya in 1995.
In 2004, we produced the first ever aerial safari promotional films when helicopters were introduced into Kenya’s tourism industry by Tropic Air.
As specialists in aerial filming, we combine helicopters with the latest in drone technology, DSLRs and GoPros to provide bespoke aerial footage for any project, whether land surveys, conservation studies or private safaris.
With our in-depth knowledge of production and post-production techniques unique to aerial photography, we are able to produce stunning aerial images tailored to our clients needs.
