A story about the charity project “DHL’s got Heart”

In 2019 Saint Petersburg Production Team was hired for the organization of a filming in Moscow. Our customer was DHL. We were asked to facilitate the filming a story for the charity program DHL’s got heart. The main complexity was to get all the required film permits from countless russian authorities, as the filming took place inside psychiatric hospitals.

The story was about an employee of DHL who created a great project: a theatre that involves the patients with different dissabilities as actors.

For filming projects that require permits from orphanages, hospitals or other educational or medical institutions – please contact our fixers here. Keep in mind that these permits are very time consuming and require accurate and complex negotiations with the authorities. The estimate processing time is 3-5 weeks.
