Imagination TV Fiji is a subsidiary of Imagination Television specialising in facilitating international productions in the Fiji Islands.
Its latest venture was in 2014 for Channel 7 Australia. Imagination TV Fiji facilitated the location, crew and production facilities for ‘The Big Adventure’. The job included major construction for sets and control rooms as well as setting up full technical infrastructures for the Channel 7 team.
In 2013 Imagination TV Fiji facilitated for Shine and Channel 7 (Australia) who made 'Beauty and the Geek' on the Coral Coast on the Island of Viti Levu. Darryl and the team successfully retrieved the 47 percent rebate for Shine for this production, making it an extremely worthwhile venture for all.
Imagination TV Fiji Ltd can facilitate everything for you in the Fiji Islands and, being a Fijian-based company, we can apply for any rebate applications.

Imagination achieves rebates
Imagination TV (Fiji) has achieved its second production rebate from the Fijian Government.
The $4.3 million (FJD) cheque was presented by the Attorney-General of Fiji, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum to Imagination's Creative Director Darryl McEwen in August for Channel 7 (Australia) production, 'The Big Adventure'. Fiji media - including Fiji One and FBC TV News and both the Fiji Sun and the Fiji Times covered the rebate handover.
The 2015 rebate follows the March 2014 cheque presented to Imagination TV (Fiji) for Channel 7's 'Beauty and the Geek', which collected $3.6 million (FJD) for the Australian network.
McEwen - who owns a home in the Fiji Islands and is keen to promote industry there - says the process is a solid "You Comply, You Get" one and he's delighted that Imagination has achieved its second rebate under the Fijian Government Scheme.
He hopes it will encourage other networks and production companies to bring their shoots to Fiji, safe in the knowledge if the correct procedures are in place, the rebate is an extremely achievable expectation.
