British independent movie Jet Trash films on location in Goa
British independent movie Jet Trash has filmed on location in Goa in western India. Based on the cult travel novel Go by Simon Lewis, the film follows two young friends who escape London life for India, only to be followed by a vengeful gangster.
Filming took place almost entirely on location in southern Goa and in the Palolem region, an area popular among international backpackers.
“In order to make the most of the film's limited budget many of the scenes were shot in 'live' environments,” explains Co-Producer Tony Cordeaux of Goa Film Services.
“Two of the scenes required bustling nightclubs and many required busy market places and beaches. We shot these almost like a documentary rather than emptying the locations and filling them with extras.
“Not exactly guerrilla filmmaking as we had permissions and agreements with location owners and we also had a substantial crew with us. This presented us with a few production challenges as we had to manage cast, crew and equipment in some pretty hectic places but the production value was incredible as a result.”
