    We are searching for a location with contemporary modern architecture, preferably bright colours.

    Concrete and glass.

    It could be a business district, university, school or other public buildings. The specific location we look for is a plaza, walkway or space between buildings that’s clear of cars, public transportation or other kinds of traffic.

    It’s necessary for us to be able to close down the location during either the week or the weekend.

    We need to have full traffic and crowd control (motion control 3 layers)

    The surface of the location should not be cobblestone, patterns or any coloured material, but more a simple plain grey’ish surface.

    Preferably no Trees

    Also we need to see the sky somewhere in the picture….it could be either as a direct view from the ground between buildings or through a roof from inside.

    Examples attached

    You should consider DUBAI. I just shot a South African commercial there and the brief was very similar. Speak to VIP FILMS ( Rafic is Exec)
    Your options are endless and found crew fantastic. VIP are very established and could give you options. Feel free to contact e if you want to come to SA ever..

    Alternatively send me your email and I will get Rafic to contact you.

    Txs and good luck.

    Hi Trine,

    I have one wonderful option for you here in Estonia. Please send me you’re contact detailes to and I will send you some reference pictures.


    You should consider LOS ANGELES – surprisingly affordable and the best crews around.

    Or Mexico City!
