Testimonials

Karen Coetzee

Action Filmz has been our rental company and crew supplier for well over 10 years. They provide world-class gear and crew, and are a real partner on every job we do.

Producer- Central Films

Mike Redfern

I’ve known Crispin and Action Filmz from some of the earlier days and watched them grow as this city and country grows. I’m always impressed by how Crispin is looking round the next corner taking the next brave step. Action Filmz as a team have really supported my company well, always at the end of the phone, guided me where I need and given me the solutions for what I needed. The whole crew and office is like a big family, the crew teams I’ve had on set have never left a client with anything but positive feedback to me. Internationals come from far more established networks and systems than Dubai, and often arrive hesitant as to what and who we are supplying them with and everytime they walk away with “OK so we can produce great work in Dubai”, it’s good to feel supported, when in our industry we work with so many variables and Action Filmz provide just that.

Action Filmz have never disappointed and always had great feedback from my international clients, for me you guys always pull together and work hard and are sweet to work with – so you get my vote anyday !

Producer

Stan Jakubowicz

Working with Action Filmz was such a great experience. The whole staff was extremely talented, friendly and accommodating to our needs. We were able to fully produce and post produce a full season of our hit show “The Mic Africa” using Action Filmz’s facilities, equipment and personnel. We hope we get to work together in the future.

President of Production

Hatim Saleh

I love working with Action Filmz as they are reliable, prompt and all gear is well organized and in good condition. They have supported us on projects with last minute requirement

Director

Cyrus Patel

This was my first experience of working with ActionFilmz and I am happy to say it will be the start of a long relationship with the team working there!

Kandahar was one of the first Hollywood films to ever film in Saudi Arabia and ActionFilmz provided us with all the lighting and grip equipment for the project as well as the crew for the lighting department. I can not speak highly enough of the professionalism and “can-do attitude” of the entire team at ActionFilmz. They went above and beyond to make sure the project was a success and were an integral part of putting this together.  

A special mention to Crispin Dominic and the entire team who worked so hard to be part of the movie and make sure we had everything we needed and more. I can honestly say the experience was amazing and we started as colleagues on a project and ended as friends and we will work together with ActionFilmz a lot more in the future!

Unit Production Manager - Kandahar

David Ortkiese

Faced with the challenge of shooting a multi-cam show remotely, Action Filmz met the challenge head-on. Seven Mini LFs, One Alexa Mini, Twelve Premista Zooms, and three prime lens packages are a lot for any rental house. Along with a lighting and grip package, Action Filmz was able to outfit our show with the gear we needed to shoot the show remotely and in a short amount of time.

Thanks again for all of your help.

Desert Warrior was the largest film production ever to shoot inside Saudi Arabia. At the time of production, there was minimal infrastructure to handle a sizeable Hollywood show. This is where Action Filmz, out of Dubai, UAE, stepped in and saved the day for the lighting department. The hardest part of lighting Desert Warrior was sourcing, securing, shipping, delivering, and returning the Hollywood-grade equipment we needed to film this project. Action Filmz excelled as a reliable and trusted partner every step of the way.

They have one of the largest movie lighting inventories in the Middle East. They own and rent the kind of lighting equipment professionals like to use. Their equipment is extremely well maintained, no small feat for gear that regularly works in the most grueling deserts on Earth. They are a service-oriented company. They are experts in Middle East shipping and customs processes & requirements. Anything they don’t directly own, they can and will find. They’ll do whatever it takes to ensure equipment arrives on time and budget.

Crispin Dominic, the owner, is a true filmmaker in his own right. Action Filmz delivered the goods. They are the real deal, and I felt fortunate they were by our side on Desert Warrior.

Key Gaffer- Desert Warrior

Eric Hedayat

Action Filmz played a large part in making Desert Warrior a success in Saudi Arabia – great gear, competitive prices and amazing customer service from the top down. As the biggest film to shoot entirely in the region, we were faced with many challenges and Action Filmz was one of the solutions !

Pratixa Kanojia

The team at Action and I go a long way back. It all started nearly 10 years ago when I got them on board for a Bank TVC, since then to now, they’ve been my go to partners for everything EQUIPMENT and Crew! It’s Crispin’s vision and hard work to grow with the industry, Abdul’s management skills, the power packed lighting and camera units, and tireless efforts of the admin team that have steered Action to be the ‘A’ team in the region. Action Filmz have always delivered beyond my expectations and I cannot recommend them enough to anyone whose looking to do a shoot in the region!

They have talented and experienced crew, who are well versed in all the technical know-how required by industry standard film sets. Special thanks to owner & DOP Crispin Domnic of Action Filmz and the entire team that made our experience absolutely seamless and enjoyable. Highly recommend Action Filmz!

I have had a fantastic experience with Action Filmz in several capacities including the crew, services and quality of equipment. Action Filmz always seems to be ahead of the curve in regards to their gear. Their crew is always amazing and supportive. As a film director, I worked on several projects and it has always warmed my heart.

Thank you and I appreciate all your support.

Film Director

Mik Allen

Having had the pleasure to work closely with Action Filmz for over 10 years, I have seen the company grow to a truly international level in terms of equipment options, professional crew and service support.

Action Filmz are constantly keeping up with the ever changing equipment trends offered globally, appreciating the different demands and requirements asked of them from a cross section of DP’s and Productions. The inventory is impressive by anyone’s standards.

When dealing with Action Filmz you get a truly personal service with every effort made to shape and accommodate to each and every specific requirement.

I can’t recommend Action Filmz enough !

From our small indie projects to large complex shoots, Action Filmz has been our primary production partner for over 7 years now. They’re up to speed with the latest in film production equipment and an experienced crew, all under a proactive booking and rentals team.
One of the best in the region. Highly recommended.

As an international photographer travelling to Dubai for advertising campaigns, both for photo and film productions; I have been amazed by the speed of quoting and flexibility by the crew. For me they are an all in one crew and lighting solution which will add great value to any production.
