Awards season is upon us and we have something of a Best Picture Award for ourselves to announce, minus the political statements and wardrobe malfunctions… but maybe with a few tears! Our 2019 production for Hassan Allam Holdings – the largest construction company in the MENA region – has won the Platinum award at the AVA Digital Awards.

The production saw 6 of our talented crew travel across Egypt for two weeks, filming at over 20 different locations on consecutive shoot days. We covered over 2500 miles throughout the trip, took in the Pyramids and even learnt a bit of Arabic from our Egyptian co-workers, all whilst making an award-winning corporate film.

The brief was to produce a world-class brand video to showcase our client as a market leader in the construction field. It was shot with a combination of cinema-grade cameras and drones, which not only demonstrates what Hassan Allam does but also highlights the fast-paced development of Egypt and the MENA region, particularly with regard to the industrial, energy and water sectors.

 

Making use of the Golden Hour where they could, our crew captured some truly magnificent imagery of amazing locations, including huge sites and one of the largest solar power plants in the world, located in Aswan – It’s visible from space!

Towards the end of last year, the video was entered the into The AVA Digital Awards and we are incredibly proud to have won the Platinum award for the project, which is the highest accolade that AVA award. We would like to thank the Academy at the AVA awards for the recognition and the amazing people at Hassan Allam for their support and wonderful hospitality.
