For all the film shooting and associated services that Goa attracts, there is almost zero supporting infrastructure.
Simple case in point being basic equipment rental.
Cameras, dollys, trolleys, lighting, generator vans, vanity vans etc must travel all the way from Mumbai incurring massive and unnecessary expenses for the producers.
– Rental increases because of travel time
– Insurance related to the transportation risk
– Additional buffer time because of unavailability of spares and alternatives locally
