FIXING/LINE PRODUCING FOR INTERNATIONAL
UK | EU | TR
At GOLDENPIX we believe in three rules:
1. Proper prior planning prevents poor performance.
2. Time spent in recce is rarely wasted.
3. Assume everything is a disaster until proven otherwise.
We recognise that a exhaustive pre-production process is essential to a stress-free shoot. Every project has unique requirements and our flexible and professional team work hard to provide what is needed, whatever it is.
We believe that versatility and accountability are key to successful filmmaking. Most of the clients bring their own director, DOP, producer and often production designer, then we find the rest. As soon as our line producer has reviewed the script and established the specific requirements for locations, cast, crew, equipment and logistics, they will put the key people in place. We have a huge network across all departments with extensive feature, TV and commercials experience in UK | EUROPE | TURKEY, which means we will always build the right team.
GENERAL INFORMATION ON PERMITS ETC
The main mistake that international production companies make when shooting out of their own field, is not to allow sufficient time for casting and locations. This can have many dire knock-on effects with licenses, location permits, tech recces, scheduling, equipment and securing the best crew.
Please note it can be extremely challenging to film at bridges, stations, airports, Parks, and shoots requiring road closures so allow extra time for these sorts of locations.
We recommend that clients come to the UK | EUROPE | TURKEY to do location recces and casting at least two month before principal photography. You can then return home with peace of mind while our team work on the pre-production and get everything perfectly set up. However, we live in the real world and understand that things happen. We will pull out all the stops with whatever time you give us, but please give us as much of it as you can so that we can organise the shoot properly for you.
