Israeli and Palestinian camera crews

Camera crews for documentary films in Israel, as well as all our documentary film cameramen, sound engineers, ACs, grips and other film and video professionals, are very experienced in international documentary film productions. We’ll always send you their reels in advance, before the professional dialogue begins… Israelis and Palestinians work together in Highlight Films. We respect each other’s sensitivities, and we work together for the same end. The border between Israel and the Palestinian areas is not always clear; therefore our Palestinian cameramen would often film documentary films Jerusalem or other places i Israel-proper.

In many productions the visiting filming crews or production crews have to cross back and forth between Israeli and Palestinian territories. We know how to plan it right and which ways and procedures to follow in order to make the crossing quick, safe and efficient.
