To Whom It May Concern:
This letter is to recommend the services of Sharon Schaveet and Biblical Productions. For our Israel-based films, CBN Films has worked exclusively with Biblical Productions for more thean four years, and I could not recommend anyone more highly.
Hello Natalie & Sharon
We are very pleased with your team and the quality of your work. Thank you for being so responsive, and really running your end of this project with creativity and integrity in every way. We will be sending payment as soon as possible, and will recommend you to our colleagues very highly.
Please send the other hard disks when you get the opportunity. They can go regular delivery on our FedEx account.
All the best, and thank you again.
To all Producers, EP’s, and production personnel,
If you have a project that needs to shoot in Israel, I would highly recommend Sharon Schaveet and Biblical Productions.
I had a project that involved many locations and several shoot days. The places we wanted to shoot were difficult and Sharon and the crew at Biblical pulled it off without a hitch! They were able to get us permission to shoot in every location we requested and some of those were not easy I know. We had multiple locations per day, worked long hours, and we moved very quickly thanks to a very dedicated crew.
Sharon and Biblical will do everything in the power to ensure the success of your production.
It was an absolute pleasure working with you and your team during our short trip in Jerusalem last month.
You were very efficient during the preparation and followed through until after we returned.
On the ground, everything went very smooth and you worked hard making sure you met all our expectations.
I hope we can work together again, and hopefully get to spend more time in Israel.
Keeping up with the Kardashians.
Hello Sharon, I hope all is well with you.
Thank you for the fabulous production in Israel. You and your crew did a wonderful job.
The series has been a big hit, airing in Chicago now and then in national syndication in May. Here is the show that included Ultimate Peace.
The theme of the episode is “Acceptance.”
The Ultimate Piece story hits at about 9:30 in the show.
Dear Shani, Sharon and Doreen,
On behalf of myself and the entire Peace One Day team we would like to sincerely thank you for all the hard work, time and dedication you put into creating your Live Global Moment from Israel. The 24 hour broadcast was an extraordinary accomplishment which would not have been possible without your generosity, patience and consummate professionalism.
Shani and Doreen you did an fantastic job pulling together such an incredible panel. It was a suburb, heart warming and compelling group of individuals who melded together fantastically. Please pass on my heartfelt thanks to each of them.
Sharon you did a amazing job technically delivering a beautiful LGM. Thank you for being so meticulous and expert.
Please give my thanks to anyone else who helped bring this all together.
You rose to the live streaming challenge with ease and through your efforts drove awareness of Peace Day throughout the world.
As the dust settles on another Peace Day we are in the process of collating all the different activities and viewing figures from around the world, so please keep an eye on the website where we hope to be showing you the highlights very soon.
I would love to know your thoughts on your event and what kind of impact it had. Please take two minutes to fill in our measurement form via this link:http://peaceoneday.org/measuring-form-peace-day-2013/
Thank again and we look forwards to working with you in 2014 and for many Peace Days to come.

To Whom It May Concern:
I highly recommend Sharon Shaveet and her team at Biblical Productions! Last year, in an effort to save
money, we only hired Sharon for two of our ten shoot days. This was a big mistake which cost us more in
time and money than if we had hired Sharon for the duration of our stay in Israel.
After seeing not only her high level of professionalism, but her knowledge of the best locations, hotels, resturants,
etc., we would not have come back to film in Israel this year without her.
This year, thanks to Sharon, we were not only able to complete all scheduled production, but Sharon pulled some strings at the
last minute to provide additional resources that richly increased the content of our film.
Anyone wishing to make the most of their production time and dollars is wise to hire Sharon. She and her
staff at Biblical Productions are talented, professional, and worth every penny.

Dear Sharon, Nathalie en Noam,
We would like to thank you once more for your help.
We had an awesome time in Tel Aviv, and the footage is great. I’ve just seen some of the finale on the roof top of the Melody Hotel.
You are great people to work with, and thanks a lot for your patience and cooperation.
We will keep you posted on when the broadcast will be.

I hope this emails finds you doing great in beautiful Israel! I fell
in love with Israel as you know, on the shoot. I miss the mint tea and the sunlight there.
We need to come back to Israel to do a two day shoot of pick-ups
that we need in Jerusalem. We have been busy in post production
editing the six hour series and doing the US Interview shoot which
we just completed. It is looking great Sharon!
First, let me know what dates you are open to work with us in
Jerusalem on these dates:
From November 22- Dec. 5th.
Thank you so much Sharon and my best to you as always,
Dear all at Biblical Productions,
Just a note to say thank you for all of your help with our filming project in Israel. I honestly can say I don’t think we could have made it half the success it turned out to be without you. All of your team were so on the ball, informed, professional and fun to work with. It was a great pleasure working with you. You seemed to instantly understand what we were looking for, knew exactly how to achieve what we needed and were the most fantastic trouble shooters when problems arose. Many here think our show is one of the best Globetrekkers ever made, which is praise indeed as there are over 100 episodes. I know we couldn’t have done it without you.
Regards to all,

” It was a pleasure to work with Biblical Productions in 2009.
Sharon Schaveet and her crew were extremely professional and gathered sympathy to our work.
They were always ready to deliver no matter how outrageous the need and how tight the deadline.
Sensitive to our specific needs, adept at working in adherence to international production standards.
Great relationships with suppliers and technicians which result in good deals and low fixed costs.
I recommend working with this company for it professionalism and competency”
Biblical Productions is the most professional, hardworking, creative, and go-getting team out there. Sharon and Anika were nothing short of amazing! It was wonderful to be in Israel and know that all of the productions needs were going to be met and make for a wonderful experience. I hope to bring many more productions to Israel and work with Biblical Productions in the near future.

To Sharon Shaveet at Biblical Production
We went to Israel to do a documentary about a Spanish exorcist who was visiting Jerusalem. We quickly contacted Sharon Shaveet at Biblical production and she helped us tremendously with the planning. She very quickly understood what we wanted and provided us with images, locations and prices for equipment and specific locations.
When we came to Jerusalem, Sharon and her team were always on the ball and they had arranged with the equipment, helped us with tips about getting to the hotel and everything of a practical nature for the first couple of days.
During filming Biblical production proved invaluable and without them it would have proven extremely difficult to get to places like the Judean dessert, Bethlehem and Jericho. They went with us and provided us with all the permits and took care of that so that we could focus on the filming. If there was a change of plans they were extremely quick to come up with alternate locations and the locations they suggested always were beyond our expectations.
We would highly recommend Biblical Production to every film team going to Israel. For a film team from Scandinavia they were very helpful and understanding and we would recommend them both in regards to prices and services.

Biblical Productions fixing capabilities are second to none. All communications were clear, straightforward and concise and they had a good grasp of our budget and our requirements. Their knowledge of the country was invaluable and Anika, the field producer assigned to us was extremely well organised and a very useful person to have on location. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone planning a shoot in Israel.

RE: Letter of Recommendation for Sharon Schaveet
It is with pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for my friend and business associate, Sharon Schaveet. I have worked with Sharon during the production of our film Exodus Conspiracy in both 2007 and 2008. Sharon has provided several services to our company and has been instrumental in the development and promotion of our film.
Our relationship began in 2007 after I contacted Sharon to help us during our first trip to Israel. Sharon managed the project in Israel from start to finish. She scheduled multiple meetings with high-level contacts, including Shimon Peres, Benjamin Netanyahu, Natan Sharansky, Dore Gold, Yoram Ettinger, Rabbi David Hartman and several others. These interviews changed the face of our film and added extraordinary value to our project. All of these meetings were conducted professionally and efficiently and Sharon walked us through each step, including strategy, production, security and follow-through.
In addition, Sharon managed all aspects of several location shoots and had the ability to gain access to places that most cannot. She has developed a team of terrific DP’s, sound technicians, drivers and assistants.
We were so pleased with the results of Sharon’s work that we recently hired her for a second trip where we had similar outcomes. Sharon’s work ethic, professionalism, can-do attitude, planning skills and her extraordinary teams have made a tremendous difference in our production.
I will personally endorse Sharon Schaveet and Biblical Productions at any time with interested parties. In my opinion, she can be hired with complete confidence.
Chief Manager and Co-Producer
Dear Sharon & Anika
I wanted to write a personal note of thanks for everything you did for us in setting up and running our recent shoot in Israel.
What you managed to pull off was quite extraordinary, given our relatively short set up period, very demanding shooting schedule, a set of tricky locations & the byzantine permissions process for most of them.
I’ve worked all over the world and with many local fixers and producers over the past 20 years, and I have to say that you were the most remarkable!
We are all very grateful for your dedication to our project as if it were your own, your incredibly hard work, attention to detail, and sound advice on logistics.
You also pulled emergency locations out of a hat at the eleventh hour. Quite apart from taking us to a restaurant with the best lamb chops I’ll ever taste!
I could go on, but I really just wanted to pass on these heart-felt thanks. Our shoot would have been utterly impossible without both of you.
With all best wishes,

Hi Sharon, Anika,
I just wanted to say a GIGANTIC THANK YOU to you both. I haven’t spoken to Paul since he’s landed (hopefully he’s home sleeping) but I can’t tell you how secure we felt knowing that the crew was in your capable hands. Thanks Anika also for forwarding pictures throughout the shoot; the heads of this company have really enjoyed seeing what was going on over there, since they rarely get to experience it first hand. I can’t wait to see the footage!
I hope that you are both getting some rest and relaxation in finally!
Many, many, MANY sincere thanks,

It was truly a delight working with you…you always had the answers and made our jobs so much easier because of your expertise. We were delighted with Biblical Productions and we so appreciate all of your and Anika’s hard work. Thank you so very much for everything!
I do hope our paths cross again soon!
Gratefully, your friend
I just wanted to write you a quick note to personally thank you for all you did for the whole Word on Fire team while we were there. Our experience was fabulous thanks to all of our hard work! We also really enjoyed being with you!
Father Barron was so thankful and appreciative of all you did. Because of you I am sure our production will be the best.
Thanks for everything and I hope our paths cross again.
Words on Fire Production Team
Congratulations on last week’s success! Both Heather and I are delighted that we were able to introduce you to Osnat and Najeeba and that the filming went so well.
Linda and Anika, it was a pleasure to watch you work. Sharon, though we did not get to meet, I know how hard you worked to pull this opportunity together in a short timeframe, and I thank you. And John, we did it!
Heather is working to pull together our photos in a format that she can send to you. We look forward to receiving your photos too, in whatever medium is easiest. And of course, we’d look forward to hearing when you expect we will have the footage to review, and to identifying how we can be most helpful as we move forward.
Finally, we had some exciting discussions with Osnat and Najeeba and our other partners in Israel about possible release events for the film; do let us know a sense of the production schedule so that we can together leverage opportunities for the finished product.
I am deeply grateful to James Kidner for connecting us. Shall we plan a call soon?

Just to say thanks so much for being so brilliant on the shoot and what a pleasure it was to work with you and the crew.I see that Germany beat Turkey and you’ve got the final you were hoping for. So I’ll be thinking of you on Sunday night.I had a great morning yesterday (thanks for your birthday call by the way). I’m looking forward to seeing if I can make the tahini thing work this weekend now that I know the secret.
Haven’t been able to take a look at the rushes as I was forgetting we don’t have a HD DV Cam deck here – we only have the HD deck that takes the large tapes, so we’ll be renting one for a day next week to digitise the small tapes in. I’ll let you know when we’re editing in case you get emails from anyone asking.

To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing to thank Biblical Productions and their amazing Producer Sharon for helping us out on our shoot in the holy land. In late February I needed to send an ENG crew from Los Angeles, California to Jerusalem to shoot the main footage for our 5 hour DVD series on the Bible. Sharon was amazing in helping my team get done what needed to be done. She suggested a great hotel for our stay and even coordinated car service and airport pickup for my crew. Sharon pre-scouted and met with authorities involved with our multiple city shoot and wrote all the necessary letters and confirmations to confirm and pay location fees and donations . I was informed by my crew that they had never worked with such a professional team and that Sharon kept them on schedule even when my Cinematographer wanted to shoot more, which helped me out with the overtime, when normally I would have no control with a crew a whole country away.

You pulled off miracles.
You let nothing stand in your way.
You’re were ever calm, charming, can-do, thoughtful, creative, efficient and lovely to work with – the perfect field producer.
We had a fabulous few days, and it’s absolutely down to you – and I shouldn’t forget Anika and the crew too.
A thousand thank you’s for taking such wonderful care of me. We’re thrilled with the footage.
I’m sure it won’t be long before we’re back filming in your fabulous country

To whom it may concern,
I am the owner of Lone Wolf Documentary Group and a producer/director. I recently completed production on a 2 hour History Channel special entitled “God versus Satan.” The program required us to shoot in Jerusalem in both Muslim mosques and Jewish synagogues. I employed Biblical Productions to set up the shoot and worked closely with Sharon Schaveet. Sharon was superb and thoroughly efficient and always ready to solve whatever tricky problem arose. I was duly impressed with her ability to navigate the often tricky political mine fields in the Old City. What could have been a very difficult shoot turned into a very pleasurable and productive experience. I would highly recommend Sharon and Biblical Productions to any foreign production company planning a shoot in Israel.

How you doing? I just want to thank you for looking after us during our stay in Israel. It’s been most enjoyable!
We spent a lot of time at the beach in Tel Aviv and managed to experience some of the night life, shopping and culture in the space of 2 days. We all got a bit tanned which is nice to see. Great suggestions!
On behalf of the crew, I would like to thank you for all the hard work and professionalism you brought in; ensuring us a trouble-free stay.
Keep in touch,

To Whom It May Concern:
This letter of recommendation for Sharon Schaveet is written with great pleasure. Earlier this year, my crew and I traveled from the U.S. to Israel
for a film shoot. While in the region, we ran into a number of complications and difficult situations, but Sharon’s knowledge and experience, along with her
positive attitude and professionalism, proved to be our saving grace.
Sharon provided invaluable production assistance to our crew in Israel. Without hesitation, I highly recommend any production in the area to
take advantage of her exceptional skills and expertise.

I just wanted to thank you for all your help in with our t American Jewish Committee film. From the moment we stepped off the plane we knew we were in good hands. Uzi got us with our equipments through customs with no problems. You and Haggit schedule our days extremely efficiently as well as fixing interviews for us that we never thought we were able to obtain. You even confirm our travel arrangement for our next stop. Berlin. And Shuki not only got us to our locations ahead of schedule and help us with audio & lighting as well as taking us to some wonderful restaurants and letting us see Jerusalem like locals. All of you contribute greatly to our film.
It will be shown in the AJC annual meeting in Washington DC on the 4th of May and George W. Bush will be attendance.
I will never consider calling anyone else when working in Israel and will certainly recommend you to all my colleagues. Thank you for a very present experience.

I am writing to thank Biblical Productions and their talented, amazing Producer Sharon for helping with pre production, production and post production for a feature documentary DIAMETER OF THE BOMB. Sharon is a one stop outlet – her access to people and companies and her skills are the best in the country. She was the production manager on a 4 weeks shoot in 2003 for DIAMETER OF THE BOMB which is being released theatrically by Lionsgate and ThinkFILM Sharon was amazing in helping my team get done what needed to be done. She suggested local crew, hotels, restaurants, equipment houses etc for the shoot Sharon pre-scouted and met with high level authorities involved in the film and with our multiple city shoot and she wrote all the necessary letters and confirmations to confirm and pay location fees and donations. I can with out a doubt recommend Sharon/Biblical Productions for anything that needs to be done in Israel.

To whom it may concern:
I am writing in order to bring to your attention the outstanding services that Biblical Productions recently provided for our international music company, Done and Dusted.
Producer Sharon Schaveet’s exemplary organisational and communication skills not only enabled the smooth transition of a high profile recording artist and film crew to Israel from Egypt on a very tight schedule, but she and her company arranged for the world class production of a global film project to be shot in Jerusalem, employing top Israeli crew and equipment on a slim budget.
We have worked with many production companies all over the world, but Biblical Productions’ professional approach made a superb impression. Their care and attention to detail secured beautiful images for our project, which is set to be launched all over the world in the New Year.
Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. We cannot recommend Biblical Productions highly enough.
