  • Hi there,
    I’m working on a film set on a container ship. Most of the film is set below decks which we are going to build on a stage, but we are going to need some exteriors. Has anyone had any experience with something like this and can recommend any contacts?


    In which country will you built your set ?

    Will you need a ship in the middle of the sea or parked on a quay ?

    We have many possibilities in France with film friendly harbors.

    best regards,
