When is the best time to go Filming in South Sudan

Filming in South Sudan depends a lot of the weather. South Sudan experiences mild weather with intermittent seasonal rain. Both wet and dry seasons exist. The dry season comes after the rainy season, which lasts from April to November. Storms and heavy rainfall are predicted for April.
The dry season, which lasts from late December to late March, is the ideal time to travel to south Sudan. Many roads may be closed when it rains something that can make filming in South Sudan complicated. South Sudan experiences relatively constant temperatures throughout the year; average July temperatures fall between 20 and 30 °C, while March temperatures are slightly higher, falling between 23 and 37 °C.

Costs of Filming in South Sudan

Local expenses in South Sudan are low for things like talent, a supporting cast, etc . The cost of imported goods varies. Since there is little to no infrastructure for film making, all essential personnel and supplies must be imported from elsewhere. The closest significant industrial hub is in Kenya. To fit every budget, we always negotiate regional deals and offer the proper amount of production support.

Film Fixing Crew & Talent

In South Sudan, there aren’t many directors, videographers, or still photographers. The majority of the crew must be imported from abroad. Simple projects can be assisted by nearby supporting crews. More knowledgeable crews from Laba Africa Expeditions will search for one or any you desire based on your shot if you need to look deeper.

For all of this kind of assistance, contact Laba Africa if you need a photographer, videographer (cameraman/camera operator), camera assistant (focus puller), sound operator, grip, gaffer, stylist, hair and makeup, PA/runner, production driver, or any other film crew for your shoot in South Sudan.

Day prices and buyouts for talent are negotiable. The talent pool of South Sudan is exclusively composed of African people. The Bantu, Nilotic, and Central-Sudanic peoples make up the major ethnic groups. Other looks must be imported from abroad.
