SKY BURIALS—ORDER PRODUCTIONS

ARTICLE BY NEPAL FILM PRODUCTION TEAM

One of the toughest shoots we’d done, the project proved to help us reach a new height when it comes achieving our work goals. We researched and created content for the project, filmed a sacred ritual known as a sky burial that is practiced only in the specific location of Lo Manthang, for which we had to make a very long journey at the altitude of 3840m. Access to Lo Manthang requires a special permit and liaison for foreigners. For the shoot, we managed everything varying from location coordination to applying for the special permits. The drone permits were gained by coordinating with the Home Ministry, Ministry of Information and Communication, Ministry of Defense and Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal. The production took a total of 15 days and as a local producer it was a great experience working with the team at that altitude.
