To engage local businesses and continue supporting the development of Guyana’s multimedia sector, Stabroek Block operator, ExxonMobil Guyana Limited (EMGL), is currently on the hunt for local providers of multimedia production services for various campaigns.

In a Request for Information (RFI) published today, the company said it is looking for a contractor capable of providing a wide range of multimedia production services. These include pre-production activities such as budgeting, research, scripting, storyboarding, and scouting for talent and locations.

The production phase involves setting up scenes, staging, photography, videography, interviewing, and studio/booth recording. Post-production services required include editing, sound engineering, noise reduction, visual effects, and the creation of graphics and animations. The contractor must also be able to draft the end-product and make changes as requested.

The chosen supplier must demonstrate the capability to handle up to 45 projects per month, producing content that ranges from brief highlight videos to full-length features up to 10 minutes long. Additionally, the projects may demand filming beyond regular working hours to meet EMGL’s deadlines. These productions, according to Exxon will be broadcasted on company sites, local television channels, newspapers, and social media.

Exxon was keen to note that local content strategy is a cornerstone of its operations in Guyana. As such, suppliers are expected to align with the Local Content Act (2021) and incorporate local content strategies in their submissions. The selected contractor must prioritize the use of Guyanese goods, materials, and subcontractors, ensuring compliance with local content laws and contributing to the development of local workforce and supplier capabilities.

Interested suppliers must submit a comprehensive response to the RFI, including a completed questionnaire, a company profile, and evidence of compliance with the Local Content Act. Submissions should be emailed to [email protected] before July 26, 2024.
