November 2004

“Ich will laufen – Der Fall Dieter Baumann”, Neue Filmproduktion from Berlin,
came for a week’s shoot with a small crew including Director, Diethard Kleint, and principal actor Hans Werner Meyer, to shoot the beauty shots of Baumann’s high altitude training in Kenya. This was a“commando” shoot, a Pontact speciality using a small and efficient crew,easy to move and seize that special opportunity when it arises.

“The White Masai” ("Die Weisse Maassai”)
for Constantin Film ,Munich.
This was a logistically challenging, physically taxing shoot from August-November in 2004, a three month build and 6 weeks of the shoot taking place in Ngelai in a remote corner of North Eastern Kenya.
We have no doubt the awesome, wild beauty of this part of the country and it’s wonderful Samburu people will be revealed when “Die Weisse Maassai” is released on 5th September, 2005. Producers, accountants
and crew left Kenya very satisfied with Pontact’s services, and vowing
to return.
