Since 1998 we managed dozens of Christian and Biblical productions in Israel. Our customers are churches, ministries and other Christian organizations throughout the world. On the TV side, we film with all major TV networks and broadcasters. We can secure access to any religious, archaeological or historical site in Israel. In addition, we provide all the required production services.
The Highlight Films archive footage collection includes 4K and HD stock footage of many Christian sites in Jerusalem. Our footage collections follow Jesus Christ in the Holy Land and many other Christian sites from the air and on the ground.
Our experience: Filming in the Holy Land
Filming in The Church of the Holy Sepulcher
Many Christians believe the Church of the Holy Sepulchre to be the site of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion and burial. The history of the Church is fascinating, and we have filmed on site with dozens of productions: they dealt with the history of Christianity, New Testament narratives, archaeology and other religious, theological or historical aspects. The Church belongs to several Christian denominations, and it is managed by the Greek Orthodox, The Franciscans and the Armenians.
We have a lot of experience filming in the Church, including one of the most marvellous ceremonies: The Holy Fire ceremony, taking place in Israel, is a unique opportunity to see the Christian community of Jerusalem and Bethlehem.
On the footsteps of Jesus Christ
The Biblical history of Jesus Christ goes throughout various areas of the Holy Land. From Mary and Joseph’s passage from Nazareth to Bethlehem; the annunciations, the birth of Baby Jesus in today’s Church of Nativity in Bethlehem; through the miracles performed in the Galilee, walking on the water in the Sea of Galilee, Baptism in the Jordan River, and obviously the trial, walking through Via Dolorosa, crucifixion, burial and resurrection in Jerusalem. We know all sites, and we filmed many times there.
Filming in Temple Mount – Al Aqsa
The most sacred site in the Holy Land, Temple Mount (Al Aqsa), is usually not accessible for visiting film crews. The sacred site is always at the center of political and religious sensitivities. Due to the complicated relations between the Muslim guardians and the Israeli police, access is complicated and sometimes impossible.
We filmed there many times, and we have our own Muslim cameramen who are allowed to film on Temple Mount, including inside Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock.
