Experienced Camera Crews Who Know The Region
Atlas Television has been providing reliable camera crews out of Dubai since 2003. Our cameramen, DoPs and sound recordists will make sure your shoot goes smoothly. We also cover Abu Dhabi and other locations in the UAE and some of the other Gulf countries.
Our camera crews are handpicked and vetted and have a proven track record of delivering excellent pictures and sound. They can be trusted to deliver to the highest international standards. They come mainly from Britain and Australia – all are dedicated professionals committed to their craft.
If you want a cameraman or sound recordist only, we routinely provide individual crew members as well.
One thing to be aware of: If you are planning to shoot in a public area in Dubai or the UAE, you must get filming permission. Depending where you want to shoot this can easily take five or more working days so do it well in advance. We can help with this.
We offer the following crew services:
- Lighting Cameramen
- Sound Recordists
- Camera Assistants
- DIT/Data Wrangler Drivers
- We can also provide Producer-Directors
