  • I am urgently looking for a beautiful (magical looking) forest with a lake/pond in it. Recent location pictures would be great.

    We need to build a set and shoot INSIDE this forest so access must not be a problem.

    There will be a great amount of detailed set building in this forest. Finishing and art directors, propping are important.

    Looking for a place that can offer great prices with a great crew.

    Ideally there should be mountains as background.

    This commercial shoots in the 1st week of August.
    Preferably film with anamorphic lenses. Next choice is Alexa.

    Please reply in this thread or send me an email on

    Hi there,

    I believe Finnish Lapland can offer you exactly what you are looking for: magical sceneries with lakes and forests, accessibility and cost effectiveness!
    I’d be happy to learn more about this project so do feel free to tell me more at .
    In the meantime I invite you to have a look at these images – just food for thought – from Lapland.

    All the best

    Hi Katisha,

    We can most certainly help you in South Africa. We have loads of these locations and it is very cost effective to shoot here.

    Here are some art dept people I work with often in Cape Town:

    You may consider Quebec, Canada…out of Montreal, less then 2 hrs drive you will find, east, west, south and north, an incredible choice of magic forests, lakes, etc etc

    If interested, we can prepare a album of recent locations..

    With 17 distinct regions, Quebec vast territory covers an area of 1.7 million km2, – three times larger than France and four times larger than California – and each of Québec’s hundreds of towns and villages present a different facet of the province.

    Due to the sheer size of Québec, it has a remarkable variety of landscapes, including fertile plains, the highest mountain chains in eastern Canada, more than one million lakes, and thousands of rivers.

    The St. Lawrence River is one of the longest rivers in the world and has a coastline that runs from west to east through Québec. Québec also has wide swaths of forest, taiga and tundra, as well as permanently frozen glaciers in the far north.
