Flight of the Phoenix Date: 08 Apr 2011



Namib Film provided an extremely well organizes 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. The majority of location shows I have done lose time in set you ad finding crew, so it was a pleasure to move to a location, especially one as remote as Namibia, and hit the ground running without a hitch. This level of professionalism was maintained throughout the five month shoot, and when shooting in what was unknown territory for us, the outstanding level of local knowledge displayed by Namib Film, gave us the peace of mind and security that is normally only acquired on home ground. I hope sincerely to work with them all again. It was truly a pleasure.

“Flight of the Phoenix” recently completed both principle and second unit photography entirely on location in the Republic of Namibia under the extremely capable and experienced auspices of Namib Film in the personage of Mr. Guy Nockels and his wonderful team. “Phoenix” was a uniquely difficult production: we got what we came for – harsh, beautiful desert, massive, untouched landscapes as alien as they are breathtaking, vast, stunning vistas. Now, anybody that has ever lugged a film camera around will tell you that it is hard enough to do it inside a four walled studio, never mind in the middle of the Namib desert, yet, thanks to the amazing talent of Guy and his team at Namib Film, they pulled it off without a hitch and, literally, captured the impossible. 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 stars, Namib Film came through for us with flying colours. And, unlike many facilitating companies, Namib Film have their eye on the long term future: they are fiercely proud of Namibia and go to the least measure to ensure that the desert environment s they allowed us to film in were left as pristine as they were found, These guys are no cowboys – they are professionals, true and true and it was a pleasure and an education to work with them. There would be no “Flight of the Phoenix” without Guy Nockels and his Namib Film team… it’s as simple as that.

A documentary Namib Film facilitated for Icon Films in 2011.


Icon Films worked with Namib Film on a documentary featuring the San Bushmen of the Kalahari. From first contact it was clear we were in good hands and that both Namib Film and Elnette Pearson, our Production Manager, were very capable, Communication was clear, informative and prompt, Firstly Namib Film organized and joined us on a recce to meet various members of the San tribe and the subsequent film shoot, although logistically quit challenging, ran like clockwork and we were able to achieve everything we set out to film. I would use Namib Film again in the future and would recommend them to other production companies.
