Three tips on how to film anywhere; slums, red light districts, museums, exhibitions, churches, and not get your video camera gear stolen.
No. 1 – Sometimes it is easier to just get your shot quickly without asking permission. But please be aware in some countries filming such things as public buildings can result in prison, so please read up on the laws of each location you visit
No. 2 Street crime is opportunistic and cowardly so reduce the risk of being a victim by particularly watching your back. Most street criminals will try and rob you by following you and approaching from behind, so be aware of your surroundings and if you are being followed just drop into the nearest hotel or cafe and inform the staff.
No. 3 If filming in a seedy or dangerous part of town, it is always handy to be with a local person who has a good grasp of the local language. This way if you do find yourself in a dangerous situation, they may be able to talk their way out of the situation.

Making that first contact with business. When contacting business with regard to the production of a profile video, it is important to speak with the right person, the person who makes the decisions with regard to marketing.
