Location Scouting and Management Services
One of the first and most important decisions any director or producer can make is deciding which locations to film in. Locations set the stage for storytelling, and often stand in as an extra character in and of themselves. Some scenes in a TVC or series will not feature any characters, to impart a sense of place and atmosphere. All scenes must have a location. Not all scenes must include characters. That’s how important location scouting is, in Singapore and beyond.
Any expert local Singapore film fixer knows where the best locations are for any given project. They will have established contacts for key location categories, such as architectural or natural urban and rural features. And if a client wants something entirely undiscovered, fixers won’t stop until they find a site that has yet to grace the silver screen. Fixers continually draw upon an established roster of contacts, while also never ceasing to generate new leads.
Permits and Fixing Services
Acquiring the right permits and licenses to shoot in key Singapore locations is an important step towards initiating principal photography. Having permits on hand prevents obstacles from arising with local authorities that could significantly slow down the production process. A Singapore film fixer works tirelessly until the permit is approved by local film authorities. Visiting productions can then rest assured that they won’t have the added stress of navigating bureaucratic obstacles. This enables producers to focus more on the creative process.
Permits for certain locations will be much easier to obtain than permits for others. Fixers labor in the trenches until a filmmaker can set up the tripod in the ideal cinematic setting. Mbrella’s team of expert local Singapore fixers will always achieve success and work until the job is done.
Equipment and Crew Services
Once locations are chosen and permits and licenses are approved, productions need the right gear and crew for the job. Certain gear will help bring out a location’s visual potential, including the highest quality cameras and jib cranes or aerial drones. Some gear can be imported, as well as some crew. However, inevitably some key roles and necessary equipment will need to be procured in-country. This is where a Singapore film fixer comes in.
Singapore film fixers will not quit until a movie shoot or documentary film is ready for action with the latest and greatest tools for the task. Singapore fixers know how to tap local talent pools of English and Chinese speaking DP’s, gaffers, and grips trained according to the highest industry standards.
