    Surprised on a foreign location shoot? What do you wish you knew BEFORE?

    Help me build an independent online resource based on experience. Send me your anecdotes, concerns and questions related to permitting, logistics, incentives, crew & equipment resources and more.

    Let’s gather our worldwide experience and apply it to sunniest corner of Europe. I’ll get you answers from film commissions and veteran producers in Spain and Portugal as we build up content for an online reference soon to be published for fellow production colleagues.


    Consider that no matter how you add it up, your dollars, pounds, yens and yuans buy 10-15% more euros in the sunniest corner of Europe as compared to just one year ago. But saving production money isn’t everything, is it? Let’s pave the way for your next shoot in Spain or Portugal. What deciding factors do you have doubts about?

    whenever i am trying to contact any of the spanish filmcommissions or local authorities, i get ZERO feedback, no answer, nothing. so i simply gave up on suggesting it to customers.
