Atul Productions, first Indian production company to Keep open seven crew positions for European film professionals
PRIMEHOUSE, the organizer of PRIMEXCHANGE Europe-India, kicks off its new PRIMEJOBS initiative with Mumbai-based producer, Atul Productions.
We are delighted to announce that Atul Productions is the first Indian production company utilizing the scheme by opening up seven crew positions to European film professionals. The INR 8 Crore (1m EUR) Romatic Drama, tentatively titled “Couplet” will be directed by Rajesh Sethi, and is scheduled to shoot in spring 2014, in Mumbai and Bangalore.
Frank Stehling, CEO of the Berlin based Primehouse said, “Without the consequent support to the pioneering PRIMEXCHANGE Co-Production workshop by the European Commission and its Media Mundus program, spin off activities like the job exchange initiative PRIMEJOBS would not be possible. We are very happy about the obvious success and believe in the growing significance of exchange and network activities for both the Indian and the European independent film community!”
Atul Pandey, CEO of Atul Productions says, “In the rapidly changing markets scenario, syndication of content is important to expand business territories, I think the first step towards this goal is to exchange talent, understand cross continent working conditions and the way we make films. I look forward to work with imported talent, learn from them and share what we know’.
Atul Productions, a Mumbai-based production company, has recently completed production on Anand Sivakumaran’s “Money Devo Bhava” which will be released Q1 2014. Its previous release is “Summer 2007”.
