Each location-finding job is a new and different challenge. It is therefore, a great advantage in pooling professional knowledge. ‘Films & Adfilms’ provides access to hundreds of locations, to film and television production companies, photographers and advertising agencies each year. Our expert location managers have the skills to foresee and overcome any likely situations – from arranging a parking space to procuring a palace — and the ability to work to your brief quickly, precisely and within budget. Arranging transport or hotel rooms is easy but procuring an elephant or a yak at the last minute is another story! Keeping this in mind we came up with ‘Films & Adfilms’ to cater to the ‘film people’ — a job so specialized that only a filmmaker can know. Any hitch can make a difference of so many man-hours lost to financial headaches. We at ‘Films & Adfilms’ know the pros and cons of filmmakers’ requirements, and endeavor to give you service, which is of the highest quality. No amount of advertising from our side in all the fancy film guide books can really help us; but the mouth to mouth publicity of our satisfied clients will and has given us satisfaction and recognition as the top production management company in Nepal and South Asia.
