A good location scouting is very important as this process begins very early in the creation of a motion picture even before the movie is green lit. We do location scouting in three simple steps.

1) We begin by reading the script and then breaking it down to its many locations. We will then have long conversations with the director, producer& production designer to determine what it is exactly that they envision.

2) We will then begin researching the possibilities. We start by going through our personal archives of every place previously seen and call our useful contacts once we have some good leads, we will get into the car& go to these places. We will pick up new clues along the way that will lead to additional places.

3) We shoot location photographs in such a way as to get a proper coverage of locations. We upload JPEGS to private, password-protected websites. This process will continue as we narrow down all locations in the movie. Once all the locations have been officially chosen, we put our cameras away and start the next stage of the film.

We help get all the required permits to shoot for the appropriate issuing agencies. Our excellent contacts and reputation within the government enable us to walk you through the process. Government permits would take anywhere between three to six weeks. Border areas and politically sensitive subjects would take more. Aerial shooting permits are more time taking and one should budget at least three to six months for them.
More detailed information about various government and local permits is given on How to Get Permissions.
We discourage clients from working in India without the necessary filming permits.
All non-Indians need a visa to enter India. The correct Visa type to get for shooting purposes is a 'J' Visa. Processing times varies from 48 hours on a rush to 7 working days. You will need to get permission to shoot in the country from the Ministry in Delhi, before a 'J' visa can be issued. We will assist you in getting the work Visa for the entire crew.
