    Hello all,

    We’re looking for a location that has beautiful thick jungles and the ocean close to each other for a TVC to be shot in June/July.

    It would be great if you could send in 3 pictures of the proposed location along with other details.

    Thanks

    Hello from Croatia!

    You have an e-mail…with sellection of very interesting locations…

    Greetings,

    Josip Mesnjak

    Dear Mital,

    Could you please be more specific as to what action/scene you have to be filmed in the jungle as well as in the sea. So we can give you proper details whether its possible or not in Sri Lanka.

    Do you required crystal clear water in the sea?
    do you have any underwater shots?
    What about the jungle?
    what sort of foliage you looking for?

    Rainforest are very difficult to access and they are very thick in terms of trees. So we should know whether we can suggest you any alternatives too. Like get a garden which has a jungle feel and then dress the way you wanted. If the film looking fairytale then that would be ideal.

    Let me know,

    Hello Mital,
    Sri Lanka is the place for this project.
    There are amazing beaches all round the island – and there is always good weather on one side of he Island.
    What other information can you supply? it is important to have an idea of the size of the project to decide on what to offer as a location, with regards to access and distances.

    Many feature films have been made in this paradise and there are experienced crews available, as well as a pool of international cast.
    Here are some samples of what you can find, but there is plenty more.
