Creative ACUMEN

E

very production initiative comes with it's own unique set of needs. At Farsight Productions, we have had the priviledge of succesfully partnering with with dozens of production teams both locally and abroad. We have had repeated exposure to the unique constraints of filming under a wide range of budgets, timelines and working environments. As a result, we bring to every production years of experience, unbridled enthusiasm and deep local knowledge to take on any combination of challenges a new assignment may throw our way.

The notion of 'Creative Problem Solving' defines our work ethic; the awareness that overcoming obstacles is not about throwing money at problems, but the savviness to apply extensive experience and tap into our network of partnerships to accomplish more, faster with less. This is way, you can count on us for consistent, high quality and cost effective services

EFFICIENT LOGISTICS

If I had eight hours to cut a tree, i'd spend six hours sharpening the axe." The idea rings particularly true when to comes to the rigours of the production process. The eventual value of time and effort spent on set (or location) depends on how adequately the support services are designed to ensure the smooth, flow of things as envisioned on paper prior to production.

We liase with a broad network of trusted suppliers and consultants to provide every level of production support; film licenses, work permits, clearing and forwarding of freighted equipment, accomodation, transport, security, catering, casting and extras, art department, equipment rentals as well as post production facilities.
We are also competent at setting up internet and communication services at remote locations

We are all about Results

Time. Effort. Skills. Resources. All these count for nothing without a definate sense of purpose to meet a specific goal. No one sets out to make a great production for the sake of making a great production. We understand that the success of our work is more than a matter of artistic or technical merit. We must help you accomplish some clear, measurable outcomes - views, responses, approval ratings, chart positions, downloads, sales enquiries, sales and even profits. What exactly do you intend to acheive? We will work together through a simple four-step process to get you there faster than you thought possible ...

we deliver

Closure is an essential part of progress. There is hardly any upside to the situation when a production goes over budget or exceeds it's alloted timeline. Our dedication to detailed planning and hard work is all about to sparing our clients and partners from the angst and aggravation of expectation deffered. To us, delivering is not just about handing over the final work. It's about creating the glowing sense of satisfaction when the words, "it's a wrap" come in the same breath as "we should do this again." To which we are only glad to respond, "Soon, if not sooner".

Working with the Farsight team was truly a wonderful experience. I knew exactly what I wanted in my head and from the first meeting amazingly, they made everything happen, down to the last detail. I would recomend this great company any day
