Whacky Films is a leading post production, corporate video and films production house based in Mumbai, India and specializing in the production of TV commercials, ad film etc.
With an experience of over 17 years (don’t guess our age) in film and TVC production we have shot commercials and corporate videos in almost every category. Whacky Films has access to several local and international directors who specialize in tv advertising for Fashion & Beauty, Automobiles, Food, FMCG, Tourism, Retail and Finance (we could only think of these words). Whether a simple storytelling shoot or a complicated CG commercial ad or corporate video productions in mumbai or any location in India , we have the crazy crew, technology and equipment (with fancy names) to make it happen. Our relationship with teams in Los Angeles, London, Paris, Kiev, Romania and Bangkok gives us access to locations all over the world for shooting tv commercials (just our way of traveling the world on client’s expense…. Shhh). We facilitate Line Production for international production companies that wish to shoot in India.
Whacky Films exercises as an “Idea House” to create TVC’s across genres, delivering value to it consistently. We thrive on the knowledge and expertise of its people (who in turn rely on the internet), and in undertaking in-depth research (again internet) towards understanding and creating meaningful content that sells.
Maintaining high standards is our main aim. Our team will conduct deep research to find out how to best fulfil our client’s demands by offering the widest choice of award winning directors (we can even abduct them for you…. Client’s wish is our Command). All of our Directors give every script their personal attention so you can be confident in their ability to deliver a masterpiece.
Whacky Films post production team enhances the advertising experience with its amazing CG and animation, dubbing, video editing, etc (we know the technicalities... hope you are impressed).
As our name, Whacky Films – we do have a crazy and mad office filled with whacky people from our Production Manager to the Runner… who have their own belief and understanding of what Whacky Films actually is! (We are a bunch of idiots trying to act normal…. You were warned)
At Whacky Films, we are truly talented individuals who love the adrenaline rush of a film production and shoot (sometimes in literal sense… by the client on deadlines) … and have a crazy sense of humour which our clients love. (I wish…..)
