  • Hello fellow members,

    I would like to thank all of you for your time and effort. I greatly appreciate all replies and picture samples posted both here and sent to me directly. Unfortunately, there has been a discussion between the Client and agency about major concept change so the project will be most likely shot locally.

    Thank you for your assistance.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Tomek,

    My name is Peter from Fresco Film Services in Spain. Funny enough we have just researched this and found many suitable locations in Madrid and Barcelona.

    All the best

    Hi Tom,

    Montevideo in Uruguay is definitely an option to consider. Though travel is not the cheapest once on the spot this will be greatly compensated. If you are interested, send me your board and I will send you locations and initial budgets.

    All the best,
