Al Jazeera is the largest and most controversial Arabic News Channel in the Middle East, offering news coverage 24 hours a day from around the world, with a focus on the hottest regions of conflict. The channel that sent shockwaves through the whole Arab world from its first day on air has become a global name which people, governments, and decision-makers cannot afford to ignore. Al Jazeera aims to break the language barrier by launching an english language Al Jazeera station set to air in March 2006.
The station has assembled a team of TV pros from BBC, APTN, ITV, CNN and CNBC, among others, and will have 40 bureaus worldwide. The station is expanding its goal of bringing “people and continents together” by attempting to win audiences in the Western and Asian worlds.

As shooters and editors, Shafmedia also worked with some of the best documentary filmmakers in the business. So while we aspire to be the best, we’ve also worked with the best. There’s no replacement for this kind of experience—and the knowledge that comes with it.
ShafMedia filmed for Al-Jazeera some parts of the documentary “Ramadan Diaries: A Fasting Child”. We prefer a “fly-on-the-wall” approach, building trust with our subjects and letting human drama unfold. We want our documentaries to be entertaining, but also make the world a better place. We also work as freelance documentary producers, cinematographers, and editors so if you are looking for a collaborator or help for your documentary, send us a note.
