Encounter Africa were my first point of contact entering Uganda from the UK.
From my first initial contact with Encounter Africa I was provided with clear, useful information answering numerous questions any Production Manager might have entering a foreign country with crew, kit and contributors. Encounter Africa were there as a great support to the production when we needed them and I knew they were there as a fall back to production. I was given a very positive attitude to my queries by their staff who were efficient with communication. I would happily recommend Encounter Africa for film crew fixing services in Uganda.
As noted we used the “Fixer” portion of their business but Paul was very helpful in navigating the tricky Ugandan traffic. Most importantly we had no problem getting about $70,000 worth of production in and back out of the country without hassle. He was also very patient as many days he was on call for us but we didn’t have much for him to do. It was a little hard to pay them initially but once we used Pesapal it was quite easy.
I engaged Encounter Africa Safaris to help has arrange various services, including media permits, kit bond (for customs clearance), ground transportation and security for a television shoot in the Kampala area.
Right from pre-production, Chris in the office was very helpful in providing information on what permits we would need and the process to obtain these. Communication was very clear and Chris responded to my emails quickly and was always available on the phone.
