Dreamz Production, a New Zealand company has started filming part of its latest comedy thriller ‘Feeling Lucky’ in Fiji.

Producer and writer Dr Rachael Singh said they would shoot 60 per cent of the film in Fiji and the remainder in New Zealand.

“We have started shooting in Suva, but the weather has not been favourable and we have shifted to the West,” Dr Singh said.

“The much needed shoot have been done so far and we will be exploring for more scenes in Fiji.”

She said the film would include some Fijians.

Lautoka’s Jagdish Punja is an actor in the production house and is a member of the Twisted Families cast, a feature film currently screened at Life Cinema in Nadi.

“I was in the country the last time and decided to write this film and it took me couple of months to write the script.

“There is a lot to be offered in Fiji in terms of production and with the close connection between Jagdish Punja, we are trying all avenues to get more Fijian touch into this feature film.”

She said the film was about three close Fijian friends and how life evolved around them.

“We earmarked to shot this movie in Rarotonga, Cook Islands, but decided to expose more exotic locations.”

Dreamz Productions is a well established New Zealand production house since 2002 and involved in variety of productions and specialising in feature film productions, television soaps, short films, music videos, corporate films and television commercials.
