Sugar Rush Production (WAIN AL HEIN)

25 March 2019 – 3 April, 2019

“Easiest Custom Clearance yet. Dedicated and focused. Generosity and good faith.”

Project Overview

Wain Al Hein

I was asked to prepare for a journey to Pokhara via a phone call at 5 in the morning. On asking for more details he instructed me to get started right away because “Sugar Rush Production” was in Nepal to film a TV series.

I received my briefing regarding the project. I had to meet the MBC TV crew at the airport and assist them with the Customs Clearance and overall production design for the travel show “Wain Al Hein”.

The Ghalel village (shooting location) is a 17 kilometers drive from Pokhara. It took us 2 hours to reach our destination. Bal-Bahadur Gurung, the Mayor of the village, welcomed us, showed us around, and introduced us to the villagers. We filmed the whole experience of cooking, grazing goats, crafting baskets, etc.

Our Approach

Mohmad, the producer of Sugar Rush Production, wanted us to have a clear understanding of the instructions provided. He wanted us to get to the location on time with precise planning. The three hosts traveling with us were our priority. As we proceeded it was clear that the entire process would need absolute professionalism from our side.

It was also clear that instant decisions needed to be made since filming in Nepal are not straightforward and filmmakers coming from outside need to be cognisant of our country’s rules and regulations especially tasks involving local authorities. Henceforth, we moved along with all our focus, knowledge, and experience.
