    Hi Maria,

    We have these in South Africa. Also please note that in Winter here in Cape Town, everything is really green and wonderful for this kind of campaign. If the look is a dryer feel I would suggest doing the entire shoot in Johannesburg.

    Regarding the Uva Ursi no one has yet been able to grow this plant from seed here, it is too hot and dry unfortunately.

    We could use en erica with a different leaf as a cheat, please see the attached ref or we can have them brought into SA.

    We can get Rosehips no problem we would find them in a Rose garden or Rose hedge scenario.

    The Trifolium, I can get it grown in a hot house but would need to plant the seeds early April to flower by June.
    (they are normally planted mid-may and flower August)

    Here we would need to cheat the wide as it would be costly to try and grow a field in a hot house, I would suggest having only pre-grown “hero” flowers in the foreground.

    Please send us the script if you are interested in filming in South Africa.

    All the best,

    Dear Maria, these three flowers are very popular here in Italy, and June will be perfect month for shooting. I would suggest northern Italy, since -beside flower colours- greens are much brighter and saturate, and if you decide for the alps, you can have beautiful mountain backgrounds, incredible landscapes and intense blue skies.

    I am thinking of other places around Italy as well… if your budget can afford travels from north to center italy, Castelluccio is well known for flower fields in June. Take a look over here:

    I also post a couple of photos from northern Italy, alps, and center Italy.

    In any case, if you think that Italy could fit your needs, we can make a better search and give you all options available.

    We also provide other productin services, for any additional info please feel free to check our website: http://www.acfilmworks.com

    Thanx!

    Hi Maria,

    Attached please find a foto of a field that I think would just be perfect!

    It is located in Boyaca- very close to Bogota, Colombia. Colombia is swiftly becoming an ideal location for production based on its wealth and diversity of locations, booming film infrastructure and extremely attractive pricepoint.

    Please let us know if we can help you in any way, and even create a working budget for your project so that you can get a better idea of the numbers!

    Best,

    Virginia Cooney

    — One more note about Colombia, there are no seasons, so these flowers are always there….

    Cheers!
