Michael entered the communications sphere in 1968 after leaving the Army. With little or no experience he joined a local advertising agency and found himself in the film division by default.

 

However over the years he has managed to satisfy the whims of such giants as Occidental Petroleum Company of Libya, ESSO Standard Libya Inc, BHP Billiton, Shell, TOTAL and PetroCanada.

 

His latest production for television is the four episode documentary entitled "The Saharan Series".

 

AABFILMS offers comprehensive production services to producers who are interested in filming in Malta whatever the size of the production. Here are some pertinent points:

 

WHY MALTA ?

 

Malta is a unique film destination in the Mediterranean. Having serviced some of the most famous blockbusters ever produced in film history as well as countless other independent film and TV productions, Malta really has proved that it has what it takes to thrill the world. Since then, the excitement has kept on building.

 

 

WATER BASED FILMING

 

Malta is best known for its equipped water tanks at the Mediterranean Film Studios, which are amongst the largest in the world, and one of the very few to operate with a natural sea horizon as a backdrop. The Mediterranean Film Studios has served over 200 productions, from features, TV productions / series to documentaries, commercials, music videos and photo shoots. These are, amongst others Captain Phillips (2013), Kon-Tiki (2012), Troy (2004), Swept Away (2002), White Squall (1996), U-571 (2000), Raise the Titanic (1980).

 

LOCATIONS

 

Malta has captured the imagination of some of the world’s top directors portraying the country as a double for a myriad of locations and spanning from  modern times to ancient civilisations of Greece, Rome and Egypt. Malta is a bourgeoning film location attracting film productions from around the world. From street movies to battle fields and underwater sceneries, Malta acts as a unique backdrop for any type of production.

 

CASH REBATE

 

The Government of Malta has recently upgraded the cash rebates for filmmakers making the financial guidelines more attractive to the film industry. Productions which satisfy a cultural test can benefit from a rebate up to 25% of eligible expenditure with an additional 2% if the production features Malta culturally. Feature film and television productions, mini-series, animation and documentaries are all eligible for the incentives, provided that they are at least partially produced in Malta.
