Therefore, Africans must change our perception about ourselves, hence the world. It is thus our goal and endeavor to undo these perceptions and provide the correct African stories that have long been hidden, or told through biased perceptions.

Laura Matz -Director of Marketing and Sales Perkins Products, Perkins School for the Blind
Perkins Products utilized the services of Take2-Afrika Media to create a compelling documentary, to help 'unlock literacy for life' for children with visual impairment. The entire team of T-TAM more than rose to the task, creating a wonderful story about a girl called Marion and the founding accomplishments of KBT. The production was on time, beautifully edited and Take2Afrika were easy to work with in making the small changes that we asked for. Our entire team was very, very pleased with the result - a great group to work with.
Jacob Vreugdenhil Across-Sudan
"Working with Take-2-Afrika Media Ltd to produce documentaries has been a good and enriching experience for us. There was real partnership in developing the scripts, a lot of flexibility during the filming-phase in South Sudan and a good deal of creativity while producing the documentary. Their experience and excellent people skills brought a lot of joy and fun to the project,for us as well as those being interviewed and documented. The professional end product does just want we wanted it to do as we discovered: film is powerful!"
Patrick Reed: Producer/Director-White Pine Pictures
Levitt is someone very organized,competent and dedicated,capable of bridging "worlds"--such as Africa and the west. Always an important consideration in projects/partnerships such as yours, and was equally comfortable and competent in both worlds. Again from the perspective of character, dedication, and professionalism I have only the best things to say about Levitt, and personally hope to work more closely with him in the future.
Sofia De fay Film director-Dubai
Take2-Media Provided a bouquet of excellent services to the highest of international standards. Our filming required the crew access the refugee camp of Dadaab for a few days. It was a drama documentary requiring Somalian cast and it was to be filmed in a dangerous area, with limited accommodation and resources with the continuous threat of Al Shabaab militants. The crew flew in from Dubai to film in Dadaab Camp at very short notice and Take2 sorted everything from shooting permits, access to the camp, transport, security, Somalia translators, accommodation and cast within less than 2 days. Several other production houses in Kenya turned this project down and said it was impossible within this time frame.

Cathy Sampson Board of Directors Kipepeo Design Projects
Working with TAKE-2 Afrika Media Ltd as an artistic and professional team is a delight! Professionalism and reliability was faultless with everything completed to a very high standard within the contracted time frame. Very consultative and sought to fully understand what we were endeavoring to do with our documentary. They were personally very supportive of the project were seeking to document and captured imagery that vividly portrayed the plight of the women in the Kibera project with a sympathy and compassion. I highly recommend T-TAM for any future projects.

We have worked several times with Take2-Afrika in Nairobi as a fixer on both filming trips and general project visits. They know our projects and the users very well and has also looked after quite a few of our artists including Lenny and suits our type of trip very well, so we've stuck with them.

Juliette Page Comic Relief- London
"Brilliant and thank you so much... Can I just take the chance to say it has been a pleasure doing business with you. You are the first fixer I have ever worked with that is so quick to respond. Sometimes our pace in the U.K. is too fast, ours is sometimes a culture of "everything has to be immediate", far from the ideal, but also a reality, you made us feel special".
