PAK7 has appointed 2 production partners to deliver a number of TV productions in 2019. This is an exciting development and we hope that it will provide a platform for the ministry to grow.
There is quality talent in these organisations and we are delighted that they have agreed to work with PAK7 for the rest of the year (and we hope, beyond). Between them, they are a young team, with 2 of them fresh out of film school in Lahore, and two more experienced individuals, but all of them still young! Between them they look set to deliver a youthful and contemporary feel to our programming, which is essential as 70% of the population of Pakistan are under the age of 35!
AEMM Productions, led by Accad Emmanuel, has produced a number of major telefilms in conjunction with the Bible Society of Pakistan in recent years. These have been shown on Pakistan’s national TV channel, PTV, at Christmas, when Christians are given an opportunity to show programming with a Christian message. You can see a trailer for one of them here:
These are small organisations and so they will be working together with PAK7 staff (and brother and sister), Shazar and Naina Mall, and a number of subcontracted cameramen and crew, on PAK7’s first program, Video Star.
