Insurance Terms & Conditions

Insurance

Action Filmz LLC is not able to provide insurance cover relating to kit hired on its own. Unfortunately our own Insurance policy will not permit this and we have been unable to source a reliable policy in the UAE that does. Insurance coverage is provided when Action Filmz supplies crew with equipment.

If you are hiring kit only there is a mandatory requirement to make your own provision for insurance coverage.

Action Filmz LLC will provide Insurance Coverage when crew is hired together with equipment

Testimonials

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.

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.
