About us and services

Pre-Production-BBC

They hired our company, recognizing our expertise in delivering a wide range of services essential for a smooth production process. We provided crucial services such as securing necessary permits, assembling a skilled and experienced crew, and handling various other logistical needs. Our team ensured that every pre-production detail was meticulously taken care of, allowing BBC Studios to focus on the creative aspects of their production with confidence, knowing that all foundational elements were expertly managed.

Production-El Zevir Films

However, due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, their crew was unable to travel to Malawi. In response, Depicture Production was brought on board to shoot the necessary scenes and sequences on their behalf with very short notice. Despite the tight deadline, we delivered high-quality footage on time, ensuring that the promotional video met all the client's expectations. Our team's dedication and expertise in handling last-minute projects were instrumental in achieving a successful outcome for Malawi Fertilizer Terminal.

Our team at Depicture Productions was tasked with developing the entire concept from scratch. We meticulously scouted and selected picturesque locations that highlighted sustainable tourism practices. Our talented writers crafted a compelling script that conveyed the essence of Green Tourism. Following this, we produced a high-quality documentary film that showcased the importance and benefits of sustainable travel. From initial concept development to final production, our comprehensive services ensured the creation of an engaging and informative video that met the Department of Tourism's goals.
