Filming on location with The Roots of Chile

In the last four years, Chile’s cultural and geographical diversity has made it a top site for film production. In the burgeoning capital city of Santiago, there exists a beautiful balance between rich, Neo-Classic architecture as well as Ultra-Modern cityscapes.

Within just two hours’ drive from Santiago you’ll find lush valleys, sandy beaches, fishing villages, rustic vineyards and snow-swept mountain peaks. All connected by a modern highway system that leaves these locations at your fingertips.

What are the logistics of shooting in Chile?

In Chile, the most advanced filming equipment is readily accessible. You'll find Russian Arms, helicopter mounts and motion control rigs, along with a range of digital cameras, optics and much more.

During the last ten years, Ariel Leon Isacovitch, Managing Partner of The Roots and Owner of Locations Chile, has promoted Chile as a chosen destination and has successfully managed launching projects for Porsche - Cayenne 2015, Coca Cola, Gatorade, Honda, and Citroen to name just a few. In the last six years, Ariel has fostered strong relationships between the local police and his productions to ensure reliable and consistent support throughout the region’s roads and highways.

What makes Chile and The Roots the right choice?

Recently, Carlos Garriga and Fernando Lopez, founders of G & L Group and the Chile Veteran Production Group (comprising Cinemagica, Cueca Films, Sobras International Pictures and Kaleido Visual) identified the need to expand their reach and add a one-stop all-inclusive production service company.

They sought out Ariel and The Roots with the opportunity to join forces and collect their mutual expertise in new endeavours. The high volume of projects achieved by these united companies will enable us to offer competitive rates and accommodate all budget levels.
