For this Shoot: Research, Locations and Line Production (Fixing)

Filmapia organized the entire Line Production for 3 days for this shooting at Vyasarpadi in North Chennai, which comprised of the following elements

  • Recce visits to Vyasarpadi according to the script, interacting with the neighbourhood people, private and public locations.
  • Police permissions and local Vyasarpadi permissions
  • Props sourcing and creation
  • Production support for the featured artists from Vyasarpadi
  • Organizing all transport from the Chennai airport and back to Chennai airport
  • Food arrangements on the shooting site 
  • Crowd management of the villagers during shoots
  • Production support across various locations spanning a 20 km radius of the township.

This was a shoot which was wrought with some amount of anxiety since Vyasarpadi is a volatile place which is known for Tamil gangster movies and bloody power struggles. It was imperative that the crew from Mumbai does not experience any issues with shooting in such a volatile region. Thankfully the shoot went on smoothly!
