Bollywood director Vipul Shah has hired Peter Field as his director of Photography for his ambitious venture
Peter Field has been director of Photography on films like Troy, Da Vinci Code, Tomb Raider and Tomorrow Never Dies.
He specialises in large canvas shooting and is one of the highly paid and respected professionals in Hollywood, informed Shah who has directed films like Aankhein and Waqt.
"We wanted to shoot London very differently and not the way it has been shown till now in Indian films. London as a city and its life is one of the primary elements in the film and we will be exploring it through camera. A westerner would automatically see the city very differently and bring fresh sensibilities.
Hiring Peter Field was very expensive but them he brings immense value to a project and Namaste London is a big project for us so we wouldn't spare costs," Shah said.
The entire crew of Namaste London, which includes production designer and production controller, is international.
