Highlight Films offers security and safety solutions for camera crews, reporters and journalists arriving to Israel, the West Bank and Gaza. We have years of experience in providing security and protective gear for news, current affairs and documentary production teams :more than a few journalists can share stories of how a bullet proof est and helmet saved their lives…
Protective gear: PRESS tagged bullet proof vests, helmets and gas masks
Protective sets are available in our Tel Aviv and Ramallah offices, after booking in advance.
We recommend to use Level 3A bullet proof vests with Level 3 front and back plates, as well as Level IIIA helmets in “hot” areas.
Gas masks are more specifically used by journalists covering demonstrations and clashes in Israel ad the West Bank. Often, these have resulted in the use of teargas by the Israeli security forces.
We offer the use of armored vehicles in Israel and the West Bank: buses, vans and 4*4 vehicles. Due to the experience required to drive armored vehicles, we provide the vehicles with experienced drivers.
Book in advance
When violence erupts, everyone seeks protection… We can accommodate for the needs of several crews at the same time, but even we have limited quantities. So if you plan to shoot or broadcast from a conflict hot-spot within Israel or Palestine, please make sure you book your protective gear in advance.
