  • Dear collegues,

    we’re looking for:

    1) Apple Garden
    We need the apple garden with big trees and green ripe apples.

    2) City
    We need modern european but not high-tech architecture. Streets and squares with cozy atmosphere but it’s not small town. We need a lot of sunshine on the streets.

    Shooting date: 2 days, 11-18 of February (preferable) or 8-20 of March.

    Please send me location references and service production contacts to

    Thank you in advance!

    Hello Marina,

    Here in the Basque Country we have plenty of apple trees, and apples are green. Sidre it´s made here from centuries ago.
    On the other hand you have good communications by road; for the city you can quickly reach cities as San Sebastian, Bilbao, Vitoria, Bayonne or Pamplona. Architecture goes from oldest to most avantgarde.

    We have studios and a many production companies as well.

    Don´t hesitate to contact us for further details

    Best regards

    Dear Marina,

    In Spain we have several areas (Andalucia, Basque country, Catalunya) with large apple orchards, so the tree itself is no problem.

    The issue is if you need green apples on the trees for the shoot on the dates you mention, we would have to fake them, since neither in the Basque region, nor in Catalunya or Andalucia apple season is before fall (September / October / November). Apple blossom starts at the end of March all over the country and crop therefore is in the fall.

    Please let me know if you need fruit on the trees and if this would be an option for you, since if this is the case, Fresco Film Services would like to help you service / organize your shoot anywhere in Spain (we are local in Barcelona, Madrid and Malaga).

    For any further questions please do not hesitate contacting me at any time either under +34 609 50 8788 or

    All the best

    Hi Marina,

    I´m afraid that at that date apple trees will be flowering.

    Most apples fall at October so for February or March would be blooming.

    Sorry I didn´t read well

    Best regards,
