One experience shooting the feature film "Fair Game" in Kuala Lumpur was a positive one thanks to Director's Think Tank servicing our production there. The company's founders and managers are intelligent, diverse, and gracious, taking care of exacting production concerns with competence and patience. The company is well organised and gives it's clients a very welcoming and generous experience in Malaysia. It is a pleasure to work with Director's Think Tank and their smart crew. A prospective client can also look forward to working with them in many other countries in South East Asia, given their strong partnership in the region.
I have done a few jobs with The Tankers over the last few years servicing different companies from US & UK. For the Fair Game shoot we did not have to stop on any traffic lights during peak hours with a 12 car convoy with Doug Liman & Naomi Watts. We share the lifts during our filing in KL Convention Centre in the middle of the Asean Summit, which was attended by different heads of countries. I still wonder how they got the location permit! I guess they just keep trying!
It was such a good shoot with Tankers in Malaysia! special thanks to Big brother Pete (executive producer) He was so kind and treated us as a family~ It was great experience to working with you guys. Great adventure with Tankers in Malaysia!!!
People who understand and respect your cultural differences. People who bring you positive energy. People who carry your same passion. How can I not love working with them?
Working with the Tankers on a very challenging shoot in Malaysia and Indonesia was a great experience . The production team they bought on to the project were of the highest level in every department. Superb professionalism and attitude throughout the 3 week shoot really kept the momentum going. Every detail was covered and any problem was quickly overcome. I would definitely recommend them and I look forward to working with Pete and his team in the future.
From the get-go Pete and his team understood the creative, the budget and what we were aiming to achieve. The key things that really stood out for us about The Tankers were; they are fast to respond (even with the 7 hour time difference!), they are flexible, and they are really experienced working with global teams. They understood how we needed to work whilst ensuring the local ways of working were adhered to too (especially important during COVID).
We worked with Tankers on the last phase of our production which happened to take place in Singapore. We worked closely with their team on all aspects of production, from casting talent, hiring local crew and securing locations. The collaboration process was seamless with our existing production team and made the shoot go off without a hitch.
The team at Tankers get the job done! They made filming a completely seamless process—great locations, great crews, and great communication throughout!
I recently returned to Tankers to shoot an extremely ambitious project for SCJohnson. Not only did this film have the challenge of recreating numerous international locations, it also needed to work seamlessly with a small number of scenes being shot in London so required extremely close collaboration between teams. This was all under pandemic travel restrictions, with a U.S agency and 14 hours worth of time differences between three cities. Tankers provided an absolute world class team, from Production through to Art Direction and everything in between, they worked tirelessly to realise the script and bring my vision to screen. I’m very much looking forward to shooting with Pete and his team again soon!
We’ve worked few times with Pete and his team. The team is very attentive, and they strive to come up with best solutions or ideas to make things happen. We truly enjoyed filming with their team and can not wait for the next one!
