FOCUSED AND ALIGNED TEAMWORK TAKES US FROM STORYBOARD TO THE RED CARPET
The Director's needs
After collaborating with Arshad Khan on a few projects, he presented a short film project, which he had written a few months earlier. Arshad had the script as well as the actors for the film, he only needed technical assistance and a photo director to carry out his project.
That’s when we came into play to support Arshad in his project. We started by analyzing the scenario as well as visiting the locations and making an assessment of the technical team needed to optimize the budget and offer realistic solutions.
Although we were almost at the end of the year, Arshad wanted the shoot to be completed before it ended. The preparation began, the temperature constraints and with the winter approaching, we continued our preparation to ensure that the shooting takes place. A week before Christmas, we were shooting in the charming village of Rawdon in Lanaudière, Quebec.
