  • Here’s more info on our project:

    * 5 shoot days in NY

    * Locations include: Statue of Liberty w Characters, Rooftop of an apartment bld w Char., University w Char. (and if possible inside the Lecture room), Outside Nasdaq market site w/o Char., NY Street w Char., Luxurious Hotel lobby w Char., Luxurious Restaurant w Char., and some panoramic view of the NY city. There are more locations we would need but to squeeze them in 5 days, we’re trying to cut them down. If possible, we could add a Sandwich shop, Police station and TV Studio.
    Also, I’d like to know about buying the stock footage, some of the scenes could be replaced with footage instead.

    * Schedule: Production in mid or late May

    Me and my producer; we’re planning for an initial visit in early Feb for a week. That will be for meeting possible production people. And if we could come and talk to you in person then would be great.

    Hi Binna,

    Let’s set a meeting for February when you guys come to visit. I’ll take you to my friends Italian place. Amazing food (Via Emilia on 21st).

    We just did a spot all over NYC for an Indonesian company with the incomparable Mark Toia as director/dp. Great stuff, so we can find and get what ever you may need.

    Here is a quick link to a piece I did as fixer for RSA with Beyonce at the UN:
