Helga Pönnighaus Photography

a moment in time - true and yet unreal - gone in an instant


Namibia Film Commission (NFC), German DED and companies from the private film industry have joint forces to promote
Namibia as a film location and actively support local companies to become part of foreign film productions. Helga and
Wolfgang Poennighaus initiated this project and were strongly involved in creating a brochure, website and location video.
NFC uses these tools to actively promote Namibia on specialized fairs worldwide. The project is now going into its second
phase, the active integration of small and medium enterprises.

This image gallery gives a small glimps into scenes and the production of the location video. For further information on
Namibia as a film location, including about 400 of Helga’s location photos go to:
