Just stick to an idea and never quit. We approached private investors in the UAE - mostly because we didn’t know anyone in the film industry outside of Dubai. But regarding the name Caweys, it was the first one that jumped out at me. When her boyfriend Ben suddenly dies in an accident, mother-to-be Charlotte collapses... On a secluded farm in a nondescript rural town, a man is slowly dying. And I wondered if any of them were curious about the products on the ads - if they felt that same sense of ownership.

Actors:Barkhad Abdi, Jim Sarbh, Jameel Khan, Meghana Mundkur, Asheesh Kapur. Yeah, it absolutely is possible! When I first left advertising to pursue my love of film nine years ago, I never thought I’d get the chance to tell a story like this. Honestly, my production partner and I knew he was the perfect actor for the role, so I just looked him up on IMDb and then emailed his representation, who was listed there. Whyd you finally land on that one? Canadian citizen. This answer is a goldmine and please don't apologise.. getting a film to screen itself is a success. Honestly it doesn’t feel real yet. Reduce costs. And yeah, I'll call for sure! Click on a profile to see other films and shows by or with that actor/creator. Looks great! And as I drove around town in the middle of the night, I would see these guys hanging off billboards, changing the ads or replacing the bulbs. And out of personal preference, I would rather have the whole film redone in ADR than jumping in and out of it for certain scenes. This got me really hyped, great trailer and great story premise. That is one of my favorite films ever, and it's one my DP/Production partner and I really drew on for visual inspiration for the film. But at some point, Barkhad was on the plane to Dubai, and then we went with whah we had. [–]kid__danger 4 points5 points6 points 1 month ago (1 child).

The grit and determination shows in this answer and even though I've faced some and know, it feels refreshing to learn it again. So I did want to tell a story that we could set there. The film is scheduled to air from December 1st on Showtime. I make lighting breakdowns of my work. I always thought there wasn't a filmmaking community here. However, the theme and plot of this movie feels in some ways similar to both that movie and Uncut Gems, both by the Safdie Brothers. From what I read online when I was writing an early draft of the script, it means 'night' - which made perfect sense for the character. The cinematography and sound is truly amazing. What was the biggest challenge to overcome? Overall, this might seem a bit vague.

If we didn't have the option for ADR we could still very much have worked with production audio - we had a great sound team on set. The film looks like it has a good sense of scope and scale - no doubt due to the Dubai location... and congrats on getting Abdi for your project... but I was wondering: It seems like sound may have been an issue for you as it felt like all (or nearly all) of this trailer was redubbed in ADR.

Jim Sarbh and Barkadh Abdi did wonderful, acting feels so true to life and walking with the characters always felt the empathy to them man. How many people did you have provide feedback on your screenplay before you felt like it was ready? My directorial debut starring Academy Award Nominee Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips) & Jim Sarbh.

But a few weeks later we were in Boston during a film festival, meeting him for lunch. And we needed all the help we could get! We did consider a bunch of titles. After a while, I quit and set up my own production company. Binoy John. Go make one. I really wish I was on set with you making Chai or something so I could watch you guys work and learn.

Another of my favorite films - and one we did consider during production - was Nightcrawler. But at some point after we made the short film 'Security', I started. I dabbled in a bit of photography for fun. Do you have an exact date of when it's going to air in December? And thanks for your questions. That's very kind of you to say! Umran Shaikh was the talented DOP responsible for the look of the film. Thank you so much! Also the trailer gives off nightcrawler vibes as well, also a phenomenal film! But someone else on here mentioned shades of Nightcrawler when they saw the trailer, so luckily some of it must have rubbed off. Since then, we've had every conceivable problem thrown at us.
