    Hi Gaurrav,

    We have the perfect location for your shooting here in Tunisia. It’s called “Chott El Jerid” and you can easily find a lot of photos in the internet. We already filmed there several times and I’m convinced that it perfectly suits your needs.
    Please feel free to contact me for more details.

    Lake Gardiner in South Australia would be ideal. It is a very firm, very large salt lake often used for land speed trials and TVC’s.

    I have shot many car commercials there over the years. There are numerous stunties who do bikes in Australia.
