Brazil Production Services recently worked with Michal Siewierski, world renowned documentary filmmaker and director of Food Choices and Diet Fiction (both streaming on Amazon Prime). For his new project entitled Take Out, BPS was hired to provide local production support (crew, permits, transportation and other logistics) on the director’s Brazil shoots.
In São Paulo, we paired the director with Marcelo Bombarda, our go-to São Paulo fixer as well as experienced director of photography. There Michal interviewed the likes of João Gordo and Luisa Mel.
In Brasília, the DP Daniel Basil accompanied Michal on some rural adventures.
Salvador was the production’s last stop, aided by local DP Américo Conceição. The crew shot at the farm “Olhos D’Água” of Ernst Götsch, the pioneer who used a system of agriculture to revive an area degraded by intensive logging, to a lush green farm.
It was great working with Michal, and he left us a thoughtful review, that you can check below:
