  • Hi – I’m looking for a cave situated near some woodland and if possible, not too far from the sea. The location has to be wild as it’s the setting for some Neanderthal drama reconstruction however as we’ll be working with prosthetics etc. it needs to be fairly close to civilisation and a hotel! This is relatively low budget (it’s a 2hr documentary programme for Nat Geo) and it for 4-5 days filming, casting approx. 4 main cast and some extras, also interested in hearing if anyone can recommend a local prosthetics company as well. We’d be looking to film end of February 2008. Look forward to hearing from you!

    Dear Victoria,

    My name is Annabelle Aronis, from Miracle Films Greece.
    We do have caves in Greece: In Athens, but also on Greek islands. We can have options of caves with direct access to the sea mainly on the islands, or sea close-by in Athens, at an average 45-mns drive from a cave.
    The advantage of Greece is of course the weather, but also its competitive prices and professional crew.
    Do not hesitate to give me more details, so I can send you reference pictures.

    Thanks in advance.

    Best regards.
    Annabelle Aronis
