Shooting in Vietnam
Posted 17 October 2010 - 09:35 PM
Recently, I have been offered to shoot few projects in Vietnam.
Projects are as follows
1. Feature film - about two month contract
2. Documentary - likely to be a long term project
3. Telemovie - TBA
I have very limited knowledge of industry over there but it is a place that I definitely want to work there.
If any of you can give me an insight on conditions and going rates (a ballpark price) it will be greatly appreciated
Thanks for your time

But whatever the money, do it. You'll never forget the experience.

The Vietnamese work their rears off, but are technically way behind the United States, Europe, South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong in production. I met some people over there who worked on features and in talking with them, it goes like this...
The DP, focus puller, main sound guys and editor are almost always foreigners.
Average budget for some recent features was 500k. Few films go near a million. No idea about documentaries.
