    For this Korean film (currently being shoted) we are looking for a (Asia like) pond inside the forest, but nothing too dreamy such as ‘The Beach’ location in Thailand.

    Around 30m*30m wide and 1.6m deep or more…
    The actors will swim in this pond so the location should be clear to organise underwater shoot too.

    Shooting / Location permit, accessability, and equipment tranport should be pre studied.
    It’s a Korean film and will be filming about 5~7 days.
    Urgent replies will be appreciated from company or individuals.

    Please send me example photos & Docs direct to below. /

    will work out for you asap sir

    Ponds in treed areas are plentiful. There are many isoloated locations near oceans, jungle sites and some with waterfalls. I have sites in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Malaysia. Perissions are no issue. Can you email me with a board, production design layout and specific action details.

    Hi, There are enough and more ponds in India with vegetation around them. The weather will be nice at this time of the year. Please write to and we can send you some pictures.

    India is full of swimming ponds!
    In eastern India(where Satyajit Ray’s PATHER PANCHALI was shot) there are several stunning virgin spots in forest locations.Most of them are easily accessible with good hotels.Recently I had shot
    a feature film in locations similar to your requirement.
    Also in deep south India a variety of similar locations can easily be located. Please feel free to contact me at Email:
    Looking forward to your response.
    Best wishes,
