Since October 2020, Victor Dume, film and audiovisual producer has remained active producing in the Dominican Republic despite the pandemic. 

“We are reactivated with many protocols, distancing, running covid tests on the crew, before and during the production. It is essential in order to be in peace. Not more than 25 people are accepted in the crew,” explained Dumé.

He added that when facing big projects with numerous work teams, they are divided into several units to be able to shoot.

He mentioned that in 2020 he was able to finish shooting Carlota, la Más Barrial (comedy), now in post-production, thanks to the incentives of the Film Law. “When the films are Dominican, we receive 100% of the investment back via tax credits and when it is foreign they return 25%,” he commented.

Another project he is undertaking is the documentary Adrián Beltré Rumbo a Coopertown. The documentary will be launched in January 2022, when the baseball player will be eligible to enter the Coopertown Hall of Fame.

With his production company Catastropico SLR, he is making the docu-drama series of the Cuban free diver Pipin Ferreras, Back to the Abyss. Dumé and Jorge Hazoury co-produce it together with Red Runner and Rat Pack Entertainment in Hollywood (and are in conversations with Netflix and Amazon). The director is John Bruno, Academy-award winner for The Abyss.

For April, they will produce the global motocross event Terra Inferno, in co-production with Red Bull. It will be aired on Red Bull Channel, Telesistemas, and the Future Streaming platform.
