London, United Kingdom, November 29, 2013 –(PR.com)– Filmmakers organising shoots in remote, wild and high-risk areas are increasingly turning to the expert support services of expedition and adventure travel company, Secret Compass.
With its military background, Secret Compass is adept at planning projects in extreme climates and terrains – and is trusted to keep household names safe in wild locations.
TV producer Josh Pitt, of Passion Planet, worked with them in Africa. He said, “Secret Compass had a fantastic understanding of the cultural, logistical, risk analysis, financial and editorial requirements of the shoot.”
Hetty Horton, Secret Compass’s film and TV expert, said, “Working on programs destined for Animal Planet and the BBC, we’ve safely taken George Clooney to South Sudan, Kate Humble to Afghanistan, and Ben Fogle and James Cracknell into Oman’s Empty Quarter.”
The new SecretcompassTV Twitter has just received a message from renowned UK presenter Kate Humble, describing her experience with Secret Compass in Afghanistan as ‘marvellous’.
Industry professional, Roger Chapman, said, “After working as a documentary cameraman for 25 years in some of the most remote places in the world, I was delighted with the knowledgeable service and excellent support from the team at Secret Compass for my latest expedition to the Sudan.” For further testimonials, visit the Secret Compass website.
