Our task was to produce a film which showcases the wide range of services and capabilities which PTSC Supply Base have and deliver upon. We shoot the film over 2 days and included the usage of the fly cam to show an overall view of the Supply Bases area and size. The 5 min film truly show cases PTSC Supply base.

The brief was to show people bored in their everyday, mundane office job. Then someone has the bright idea to have a “Coke” and the party begins.

Filming Warner Horizon’s The Bachelor for ABC USA in Da Nang – Central Vietnam is yet proof of the trend that large Hollywood production can be catered for in Vietnam.

20131004_232340

Imagine a US film crew of more than 200 executives, producers, directors, cameramen light and grip, 14 talents and 10 metric tons of equipment in and out of Vietnam for less than a week, supported by a Créa TV team of 50 souls. This must have been the largest foreign TV show ever shot in the country.

It all started on 8 October 2013 with an email from Ms René Jermal, a Los Angeles based production manager entitled “Production Facilitator Needed in Vietnam”. The email mentioned a 12 day prep and shoot but I was immediately intrigued by a sentence: “We travel with a large crew of approximately 85 people and require large transportation and local production support needs…” . I started to do some research and quickly came to the realization that this show could only be ABC’s The Bachelor

vlcsnap-2014-03-21-13h25m40s111

Créa TV has a long track record of facilitating large US productions such as numerous Amazing Race episodes for CBS primetime and licensed versions across the planet, Semester at Sea for MTV, making Créa TV at the top of the list of facilitators for these international mega productions. Again, this episode of The Bachelor was supposed to be shot in another Southeast Asian country and Créa TV was competing with production houses outside of Vietnam. And Again we are proud to announce that Vietnam was be chosen as the destination for the show and Créa TV as the facilitator.

The job was delivered, on time, under budget, and with a full safety record. I would like to close this blog with excerpts from thank you notes from our clients: from Ms Jermal, Production Manager “I just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your help and support in Vietnam.  Obviously we had a lot of changes and uncertainties and we appreciate your patience and support with everything. It was a tough episode, but we conquered and destroyed it together!  We would love to work with your team again.”   And from Mr David Albrecht, Warner Executive the day after the show was broadcast on ABC: “Last night was our Vietnam episode, and it did VERY well — thanks for your support!”

When Créa TV was first contacted to film Oriana in Vietnam, our crew was wrapping the Warner Horizon USA’s the Bachelor shot in Da Nang – Central Vietnam and I had to leave in a rush to the North to greet VIPs from Paramount Pictures to scout with them in Ha noi and Halong Bay for yet another Big Production.
20131012_121423
Oriana is a 2 episode primetime TV movie for Italian national network Rai Uno produced by Fandango, Italy’s leader in feature film production. I actually received Valeria Licurgo – Oriana supervising producer’s  – email sitting on a skiff in the spectacular terrestrial Halong Bay with Paramount’s mega Production Designer James Bissell whose credits include E.T. the extraterrestrial.

Valeria was looking for a company who could deliver services in Southeast Asia to line produce the climatic scenes of Oriana, 2 episodes about the life of Oriana Fallacci.  The female journalist started her larger than life career interviewing Hollywood super stars such as Orson Welles then shifted to politics with interviews such as both Henry Kissinger, and North Vietnamese General Vo Nguyen Giap during the Vietnamese-American War.

Valeria told me that Fandango had been trying to work with a Thai company to shoot Oriana on location in Thailand because Fandango never thought it would be possible to shoot the film in Vietnam where the action actually took place in Saigon 1967 and at the battle of Dak To, in the Central Highlands. The challenge was incredible as we had minimal time to lock all locations and permits considering it was a period piece and we needed the support of the Vietnamese People’s Army to use explosives,  an air force base and flying vintage Huey helicopter.

Irene Trinh, Créa TV’s feature films producer and her team did an amazing work leading an army of more the 150 crew, talents and extras and “made it happen” as Valeria told her just after calling the wrap on the last shot. The shoot took us back in the 60’s with antique vehicles from Cho Lon where we reconstituted the aftermath of a bomb explosion, to the legendary Continental hotel in Saigon, to the jungles and forests of Madagui where we reenacted the battle of Dak To with cannons, machine guns, and explosives to end flying a Huey helicopter at Bien Hoa military air force base.

Today, we know with certitude that Créa TV can make it happen for you too.
