Security is always a prominent factor when planning a production in Israel. Sadly, not only is the land known for its beauty, but also its conflicts. When entering an area of higher instability, there is always a risk of falling victim to extremism. To ensure the safety of our client our team always maintains a high level of vigilance, and provides direction in a calm, tactful manner.
In the past years we have provided various productions with security of all levels. As a diversified company, we use both Israeli and Palestinian security personnel; this of course, being based on our needs, and the security conditions of the area. We also offer armed and unarmed security personnel; all of which are highly experienced in international productions.
When filming with high profile talents, actors, or presenters, we may suggest using our personal bodyguards. In these cases, the bodyguard’s sole responsibility is that of the assigned individual’s safety and security. Additionally, we often provide detailed information on our entry and exit plans.
Operating in conflict areas
We keep direct communication with the police authority in every area. At all times our office coordinators monitor multiple alerts systems. This way, we can notify a client on developing security conditions in an instant. At times we may advise our fixer on location to change a planned route or to avoid a location altogether. Every few years Israel is involved in a military conflict with one of its neighboring countries. We believe that in the end, no footage is worth someone’s life. Our war-savvy fixers, will advise if you should take shelter or leave an area.
Highlight Global Security (H.G.S) is the initiative of experts from two separate disciplines – film production, and security. We aim to provide security measures, fully customized for the entertainment industry; specifically international productions arriving to Israel and the neighboring countries.
