    hi
    the south of Morocco offers a wide variety of desert landscapes and the moroccan crew is well perfomed as it worked at numerous big productions shot especially at the south of Morocco. So I ‘m sure that Morocco will respond to your request.

    Hi Mirielle,

    Not an obvious choice but Canada.. quite often used to double Mexico and Iraq. Of course our crew are second to none too :) However.. we would have to check weather forecasts for end of May.

    The photos are taken of an area 5 hours North of Vancouver.

    Dear Mirielle,
    When you look for a desert location, there are a lot of things that you need to take in consideration; catering, equipment transport, props, chemical toilets and many other logistics.
    Jordan is not only known for its unique desert landscapes, but also known as number one location/film destination in the region, with diverse locations in such a small country with experienced and skilled artists that can transform the desert into any form.

    New Mexico is 100% desert, and boasts the largest crew base between NYC and LA. Many stunning desert locations are within an hour of a city. Highly experienced crew is plentiful, including Oscar-winning art departments, and all equipment is already here. Plus, New Mexico offers a 25% rebate.

    Hello Dear,

    I am e-mailing from Ethiopia. In the North -East of Ethiopia we have the famous desert geographically called Danakil depression. It is one of the 5 hottest and lowest place on our planet.

    It is 160 meters below see level. It has about 40 km flat land of salt on one part, bibling sulfer and potassium hills on other side and one of active volcano on earth on the other sude. It has also salty water lakes. It is inhabited by the nomads of Afar tribe.

    This location can be reached from 2 directions from the capital city Addis ababa. 1/ 1 hour flight and 3 hours drive 2/ 2 days drive.

    Read in Google about Danakil depression.

    with regards,
    Firew Ayele

    Dear Mireille,

    Spain with its different deserts (Almeria, Monegre, Bardenas Reales) is definitely your place if you are looking for excellent locations, international class 1 crews (and art department) and decades of history on hosting some of the biggest films in history.Not too long ago we services a Hollywood feature film (THE GOSPEL OF JOHN), of which all exteriors and part of its interiors were shot in Almeria in the desert. Please check the trailer under http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNszCgdm9yM

    Fresco Film Services would be happy to help you finding the right location AND logistics, shooting the desert about half an hour away from civilization and comfort, with excellent crews. Please do not hesitate contacting us for any questions, doubts or help.

    All the best
