  • What is the best country to shoot a “far west style” “texas” style commercial.

    Any set already existing ?

    Any existing location that looks like the old texas ?

    Location should have a street with wild west style houses, a saloon ultimately a train station with an old train


    Hello Anthony,
    depending on your project needs, Spain or Mexico could be an option.
    Please send me your script and I’ll check the best location for you.
    I’ll be waiting to receive your answer.

    Dear Anthony-

    We have a horse ranch in northern Greece that is set up as a Far West scene. It has a “saloon” “bank” and other Wild West buildings, expert horse handlers, others animals (dogs, cats, snakes, pigs) and full saddle gear. Large trails on the premises. They can handle about 12 horses.
    There is also a lodging house that can hold about 4-6 people for overnight shooting. Functioning Wild West restaurant is also on site for either filming, or feeding the crew.

    TV commercial production and post-production services are available as well.

    Let me know your staff numbers and your point of departure, and we can send you preliminary budget figures.

    SPAIN is the place to be. This is where hundreds of famous Westerns were shot. Think of Clint Eastwood in: ‘A Fistful of Dollars’ or ‘The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly’.
    Also ‘Doctor Zhivago’ and some scenes of ‘Indiana Jones’ were shot here.
    For many years the Americans came to SPAIN to create their Spaghetti Westerns.

    For more info please contact me;

    Hi there,
    We are a service production company and equipment rental based in the Canary Islands. There is a large cowboy theme park down here, with lots of trained actors, animals etc which is happy to be used as a film set. We have crew and equipment close by, so could be a viable option for you, Would have to check about the train!!
    Let me know if you would like us to follow this up with the owners.

    Dear Anthony,

    Hope you’re doing well.

    Kindly send me a brief in order to share some Dropbox files with potential locations!
    Morocco is the right place for this shoot, if you do consider its competitive prices and great sights seeing.
