  • Hello from South Korea,

    I hope you are all doing great!

    We are looking for real prisons in the Caribbean where we could get an authorization of shooting.
    The shooting time is estimated to 3 weeks in March.
    Enclose concept images, and in the chosen country we will also need a court, beautiful beaches, roads, streets and a jungle.

    To give you a brief idea of what our project is about, we are a Korean movie team planning to shoot a movie between, Korea, continental France and Caribbean on the real case of a Korean woman who get caught with drugs in her luggage in France and had to endure 2 tough years in Ducos prison (Martinique).

    Thanks~

    Hello Nathalie,

    We are Hanne Evans production services working mainly in France but also worldwide.

    We are able to find location required in the French Caribbean ( prison, road, beaches, jungle) but also on the continental France part of your shooting.

    It would be great if you can send me an email describing all the locations you will need (Caribbean and continental). We will send you in return some options.

    Best regards,

    Gilles Dary

    Hi from Puerto Rico. My name is Fernando Flores and I am pretty sure that you can find what you need in Puerto Rico. If it is a story about a woman it should be a Female prison. I need to do some research.

    Hello,
    We are located in Dominica which is right next to Martinique (45 kilometres)
    The island has a perfect prison that could work for Ducos.
    Dominica was once ruled by the French so there is a strong creole French influence here in our culture, architecture and we speak French, French creole (patois) as well as English (official Language).
    The island boasts the most attractive production costs in the Caribbean and has hosted many productions, with great great crew and support services.
    Please contact us for more information.
    Regards
    Clem Johnson

    Hi Nathalie,

    we are a Colombian production company specialized in offering production services to foreign producers. We just shot a TV movie for Sony/Lifetime with similar requirements. Have a look at what you can find location-wise here in Colombia: http://www.locationcolombia.com/secciones/galeria_locaciones/listado_locaciones.php?id_region=2

    Besides, there is a new Film Law in place which offers up to 40% cashback to foreign producers on the local spent.
