If it lives in the wild, we have filmed it and packaged it into an international television series. Aquavision is the pre-eminent wildlife production company in Southern Africa. Our stock footage library boasts over 10 000 hours of footage in full HD, 2k, 4k and now 8k resolution. Through our longstanding relationships with the best and most popular game farms and wildlife sanctuaries, and our world-class cameramen, editors, writers, directors and producers – we believe that Aquavision in the perfect “one stop shop” for all of your wildlife film needs – to which our credits and multiple international awards are testament.
Over the past 24 years, Aquavision TV Productions has earned its reputation as the preferred African provider of blue chip, wildlife documentaries for the international broadcast market. The company is extremely prolific, having produced over 100 wildlife documentaries and five long running series since its inception in 1992. We are globally recognised for filming extraordinary animal behaviour, both underwater and in the untamed African bush – our backyard.
In 2002 we became the first South African production company to make the transition to HD origination and post production. In 2010, Aquavision spearheaded the first full 3D wildlife broadcast programming produced in South Africa. Today, we pride ourselves on being one of the only South African film companies shooting in 4k resolution. Owning our own aerial drones gives us a further creative edge, enabling us to capture never-before seen footage in any location. We’re just not satisfied if we’re not at the very tip of the proverbial sword.
Our camera crews have filmed in nearly all of the national parks, wildlife reserves and private game parks in southern- and central Africa, developing excellent working relationships with these organisations in the process. As a result we have gained privileged access to special areas, ordinarily closed to other film crews, allowing us to capture the unique diversity of wildlife species and cultures that he continent has to offer on film.
Aquavision is constantly looking for ways to explore new frontiers, which is why broke into the reality TV genre in 2008 with our broadcast of the first series of Caught on Safari: Live! This extraordinary 28-hour live safari was filmed from the pristine wilderness of the Kruger National Park and its broadcast to 164 countries was an international first – even for the broadcaster, National Geographic. This gave birth to the series “Caught In the Act”, showcasing wildlife’s most remarkable moments caught on film by lucky amateurs and patient professionals, with 18 episodes produced for Nat Geo Wild to date.
The company has a strong local and international infrastructure.
