Scheduled for release this December is the mixed live action and animation film (think Space Jam) ToonpurKa Superhero. We worked with Stunt Director Jack Gill (Death Race, Wild Hogs, Talladega Nights) and a US based stunt team to pull off some hectic sequences.
We got permission from the aviation department to land a helicopter in the middle of the sea on a huge (over 100 meters) barge that we had to modify to accommodate the helicopter's massive size and weight. It was the first time anyone has been given the permit allowing such a maneuver.
We rigged two barges to pull off a stunt where a jetski does a jump and complete flip over a pier.
We also shot a stunt at the Hilton Arcadia in Phuket with a huge rigging that carried a motorcycle across two buildings (over 200 meters).
It was a great shoot and we cant wait for the release of this one. Check out the official movie website here.
We just finished a TV commercial to be aired in India for Toyota's Fortuner. Benetone Films was responsible for all the rigging for the shoot. The ad aims to show the dual nature of the vehicle as efficient for the hustle and bustle of the big city and for long leisure drives through the country. We shot in 10 locations in Bangkok and Pattaya over three days.
It just so happens that shooting just finished for the new family film Chunnu N Munnu and, as promised, here are a few more behind the scenes photos from this really fun upcoming feature and some nice words from the crew:
"...you redefined team work - every member of your team was amazing as a worker and more as humans... thanks to you and your team" - Aziz Sajawal, Director
"...What struck me was the efficiency, punctuality and above all the humanity that was evident in abunance with the whole team. This made for a very happy unit and this what made this long and continuous schedule really possible..." - Nadeem Khan, Dir. of Photography
Big thanks to Aziz, Nadeem, and the rest of the crew for such a great shoot!
We thought it would be nice if, when we finish a project, we share with you a little more from the shoot (i.e. stills, clips, etc.) and some notes from the crew we worked with. Partly we like this idea because you get to see a little more of what's happening behind the scenes and get a sneak peak at upcoming movies and commercials. And partly we like this because the crews we work with always have such nice things to say!
Keep an eye out for the first installment coming soon...
