  3. Hi JCC I shot a feature 3 years back in Dubai, we had a local line producer who took care of all details, never had any issues with getting equipment into and out of Dubai,they are used to film crew coming all the time(esp from India),I had all papers handy but had no issues,guess a good line producer can and will sort out any issues, I didnt have a carnet Good luck, let us know how it went best Hari
  4. Good points, ditto what Joshua has said on security on sets,I dont mind someone getting to learn something by the way of being assigned work and getting paid as an intern. When working abroad have requested for an asst who would like to asst on project and gain experience ,this has been positively looked at and usually good guys referred to,. Everybody got to start somewhere,but doors are closing and most places dont welcome assts/intern
