    I am researching production problems in India and would like to know about difficulties shooting there. Especially want to hear about ease of working with governments, permits, and necessary payoffs, both to officials and private parties. Interested in all types of productions.

    Thanks greatly. Your comments will be kept private.

    Hi Bill
    We are ‘ Location Managers ‘ & local production support in the western Indian states of Rajasthan & Gujarat. We have dealt with a large number of International Production companies and secured the necessary pemissions from the Centre as well as the respective states. Necessary payoffs have to be done in view of the fact that production companies have to shoot within certain deadines whereas if one does not do that then permissions will take its own time. If ever you need to shoot in these states in India, please do get in touch
