SHOOTING AND PERFORMERS – LAB WORK – VERSIONING/DUBBING

Live action shooting and animation works such as storyboards, layout, key animation, in between and voice recording must, in principle, be carried out alternately in Canada and in Chile.

Location shooting, exterior or interior, in a country not participating in the co- production may, however, be authorized, if the script or the action so requires and if technicians from Canada and Chile take part in the shooting.

The producers, writers and directors of co-productions, as well as the technicians, performers and other production personnel participating in such co-productions, must be Canadian or Chilean citizens, or permanent residents of Canada or Chile.

Should the co-production so require, the participation of performers other than those provided for in the first paragraph may be permitted, subject to approval by the competent authorities of both countries.

The laboratory work shall be done in either Canada or Chile, unless it is technically impossible to do so, in which case the laboratory work in a country not participating in the co-production may be authorized by the competent authorities of both countries.

The original sound track of each co-production shall be made in either English, French or Spanish. Shooting in any two, or in all, of these languages is permitted. Dialogue in other languages may be included in the co-production as the script requires.

The dubbing or subtitling of each co-production into French and English, or into Spanish shall be carried out respectively in Canada or Chile. Any departures from this principle must be approved by the competent authorities of both countries.
