Portugal offers fantastic
locations, easy access, and the capacity to "double" as many other
countries. From the rugged wilderness of the northeastern corner through the
mountain landscapes in the center and down to the rolling plains of the
Alentejo and the cliff-backed beaches of the Algarve, Portugal never ceases to
surprise with its astounding variety.
All this is
bordered to the west and the south by a long coastline that offers some of
Europe's most beautiful beaches – endless open stretches or secluded coves – as
well as dramatic coastal cliffs rising above the foaming Atlantic. The country
is dotted with little towns and villages and its major cities mix history and
tradition with the new and ultra-modern. With one of Europe's mildest and
sunniest climates the film season never really ends – and the country's
location at the southwestern edge of Europe gives the light here a quality all
Portugal's multicultural population is a great casting resource. The film crews
are hard-working and professional. Several equipment rental houses provide the
latest and most up-to-date choice of camera, grip and lighting equipment. The
choice of specialized equipment such as helicopter rigs, stabilized heads, low
loaders, tracking vehicles etc. has increased tremendously over the years and
we rarely have to go across the border to Spain for this type of equipment any
longer. Various post-production houses insure that any immediate
post-production issues can be dealt with just hours after a wrap.

film-budget friendly country, add up to a great reason to get in touch with us
