Preparation is key to any successful production and working a remote production is no different. Today’s technology offers a range of software and user friendly platforms to enable anyone to be on set whilst still in their office or home.
Pre-production follows the same route as standard shoots – service company, production company and agency liaise in the usual way via email and, depending on your territory, across platforms such as Whatsapp
Zoom video conferencing for groups of up to 100 participants
Skype & WhatsApp work for smaller scale 1-1 conversations
The pre-production meeting takes place via Zoom, offering an ability to screen share and have a large number of participants in the virtual room
Live camera feed via playback monitor & software allows client, agency & director to see the action in the moment – any potential delay is 2-3 frames only – across a maximum of 16 devices
Zoom works in conjunction to provide a view of the room/set up
Slingshot is our preferred choice to share end of day rushes with the chosen editor. This is a high speed transfer.
Removing the often heavy costs associated with production travel
Making a conscious environmental and planet positive choice
Smaller impact to large scale production shoots on locations and within studios
Aligning the director with a local DoP – the India is home to exceptional talent, including DGA crew, and we are happy & able to reach out to our network of trusted DoPs for your projects. We have an innate understanding of matchmaking the right person for the job.
Engaging a trusted AD earlier in the prep alongside the remote director is an extra level of support for shoot days
