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.

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.

vlcsnap-2014-03-21-13h24m18s72

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!”

What a strange (and sad) week!- 7 days, about 4 hours sleep per night, fixing for a major U.S news service. Hectic stuff.

20140314_105128

It all started at 8am Saturday 8th March, when the call comes through – a commercial airliner has gone missing and a major news outlet needs ‘eyes and ears’ on the ground. The call came from Créa TV www.crea-tv.com boss, Othello Khanh, asking me to spring into action to assist him and the crew – who were on their way from various locations around the world.

All we knew about Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, was that it had taken off from Kuala Lumpur, bound for Beijing, and approximately 1-2 hours after taking off, it disappeared – and most likely off the coast of Vietnam. Thankfully for our news client, we are based in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), so were in the best location to be able to provide support.

The weekend was spent watching twitter feeds, news updates, making contact with Foreign Affairs officials and preparing our local staff for what could be a very busy week – we weren’t surprised by the ‘long-hours’ to come! By Monday afternoon we had two producers, 1 camera operator, 1 sound operator and 1 technician working on the story from HCMC – a ‘fixer’ and camera operator working out of Kuala Lumpur, and a third team with ‘fixer’ and camera operator in Bangkok Thailand. The MH370 story was moving so quickly, that we had to cover all sides of the Gulf of Thailand.

20140314_105217

Check out the initial MH370 timeline here –http://abcnews.go.com/International/timeline-missing-flight-mh370/story?id=22912595

The story and theories of MH370′s disappearance has changed so many times – I could not for the life of me, remember every detail. What has resonated with me is this – the International news crews and productions teams (the real professionals) will not release any new information, not until they have confirmed (and this being the operative word) every piece of information is indeed ‘fact’. On the other hand, we have psuedo/semi-professional journalists hearing rumours and writing whatever the hell they like. Which only adds fuel to speculative theories and creates more work for the professional journalists.

20140314_104358

Our teams helped the news services follow many angles – In Vietnam we followed up on the search and rescue efforts, managing to get our crew and reporter on a 45 year-old Antonov 26 Cargo plane searching in the Eastern Sea (South China Sea) see the link here; In Malaysia we followed stories relating to the pilots, and covered the Malaysia Airlines and Department of Transport press conferences; and in Thailand we tracked down leads on the ‘stolen passports’ and tickets purchased by these passengers who gave more support to the hijack theory.

20140314_104915

This production support role has continued for the past 12 days – we still have fixers working in Thailand and Malaysia – the hours have been long, the sense of urgency critical and the expectations high. What we do know is that Crea-TV can provide all of that assurance to international news and television services during international crisis. We have a wide network and experienced staff that we can allocate to any professional productions needs.

So as the story (and search) shifts from Gulf of Thailand, Southern Vietnam to the Indian and Southern oceans, our support to our client ramps-down. We are now on standby if any further information is to come out of this region of SE Asia. Our thoughts are with the families of those missing – we hope there is closure for all soon.

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.

20140316_092932

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.

20140316_112616

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

Othello Khanh, Ho Chi Minh City, 20 March 2014
