"Nerdesin birader?" that roughly translates to "Where are you Brother?" is an exciting Television series produced by FilmEvi (Istanbul) and telecasted on FoxTV. Featuring Timur Acar, a well known actor and superstar from Turkey, the story revolves around a Turkish actor struggling to find his feet in the glamorous film industry of India popularly called Bollywood. Flop Films is proud to have produced the Indian episodes of the series in record time. We not only took care of all legit permissions, but also managed casting, scripting, choreography, logistics and even arranged for Police Protection for the crew, all at half the cost and one third the time quoted by our nearest competitor. And here is how it turned out to be
We scouted over 100 locations relevant to the script and presented videos and photos to the Turkish team with detailed dimensions and floor maps. As the scripts were creatively modified, we repeated the entire process with utmost ease and joy.
Ditching the fool-hardy way of guerrilla shoots, we secured over 20 permissions from various Government departments and even film unions. We also secured additional permissions so that the director could later have the freedom to improvise, should he choose to do so.
Real time updates on sets, detailed sharing of references, textures, art and props is what it took to build all sets remotely and within budgets.
Casting & Auditions
From background actors to supporting cast, we carried out extensive rounds of auditions and negotiations for booking every single artist on set. All auditions were shared with the Director and the producer via the cloud.
Music & Choreo
Flop Films interfaced the process of music selections and copy rights. As the director was still undecided about which portion to select for the dance, we jumped in on the spot and choreographed the piece in 15 minutes on set. The Turkish crew just stood their in awe of it all :)
Dialogues & Translations
Flop Films executed overnight translation of the script and our in-house writers penned down dialogues for the various characters in one go. Needless to say the director aproved it in one glance.
Full Scale Production
From duel ARRI set ups, steadycams, multi-channel sync sound to drones, tracks and last minute requests of the director, we handled it end to end for the crew at unbeatable costs. In fact, when we felt that the DOP may need more lights for a particular scene or so , we stepped in and brought in all the lights of our own discretion to save the day.
On Set DIT
We provided one of the most experienced DITs of our industry who managed to create 3 master and 5 back ups for 2 ARRIs, Osmo, Go pro, Drone and multichannel sync sound without breaking a sweat. We also brought in our own macs and storage RAIDs for added back up.
Flop Films arranged for Police Protection of the entire crew and in sensitive areas , police patrol cars were stationed to ensure a safe and hassle-free environment. An ambulance and a team of paramedics were also kept on stand by at every location.
