Sharon Schaveet, owner and producer at Biblical Productions says, “People always ask me if they need security when filming in Israel.” The answer may be a surprise to some. She continues, “Israel is a safe place to film in, there is no need for you to spend money on security for documentary films, however, some insurance companies from your country may insist upon it.” If this is the case for your production, then Biblical Productions can liaise with known and trusted security agencies to find you attractive prices for set security.
