Here is what we can do for you:
When filming in India, you need a fixing services company that will provide end to end production support and make your filming process smooth. We at Backpack Films will take care of all your filming needs across India starting with research, pre-production, budgeting, permits and documentation, equipment hire, research and logistical support. Backpack Films provides services not only in major Indian cities but also in smaller towns and villages in the remote corners of India.
Fixing & Production Services
We provide fixing and line production services for documentaries, feature films, branded content, corporate films, commercials and photo shoots. Our team of experienced and efficient fixers will work with you on the research, recce, costing, translating and make sure you shoot goes off trouble-free.
Acquiring permits to film on location in India often gets you wound up in red-tape. We simplify the general Filming in India permit process and help you get other location-specific permissions so you can film on trains and in temples, at monuments and in wildlife sanctuaries.
Looking at hiring crew and filming gear locally? We will help you find the right camera person, sound recordist, grip or gaffer anywhere in the country. We can also facilitate the renting of the latest HD cameras, lights, grip and sound equipment from trusted suppliers.
We provide actual, on-ground research to give you the real picture of the story you want to film and to help you find untold stories. We will find you perfect characters and locations to make your story nuanced and in-depth. Our insights into the social, cultural and historical aspects of the story will be invaluable to your film.
