Working with Lions (USA)

ARTICLE BY NEPAL FILM PRODUCTION TEAM

The Earthquakes of 2015 that shook Nepal is still one of the hottest topics for many people, whether in the country or abroad. Sometimes, when you meet an old friend you haven’t seen in a while, conversations might start with “Where were you during the earthquake?” Besides the earthquake, the next hottest topic is the process of recovery slowly taking place in the sites. Almost three years later, the country is still recovering, one house at a time and the international NGOs like the Lions Club are keen on knowing where this movement is leading towards.

On the similar case, the Lions Club of USA was here to document a three years recovery plan and cover a story about major members of the club with Image Base, a US-based video and event agency. Nepal Filming Project was fortunate to work with them and help them in their journey of this documentation. The six days production took us from the streets of Kathmandu to a school in the hilly region of Gorkha, where we assisted in managing the permits, accommodation and ground transportation and even equipment.

Pieter Miller, the Senior Producer for Image Base shares that our founder, Digbijaya Bharati, advised them at every step of the way to ensure that the shoot went smoothly and that everything was on time and on budget. We also enjoyed working with them despite the short time and look forward to working with them in future as well.
