    Im working for a production company by the name of Forsberg & Co here in Stockholm.

    One of our largest clients wants to do a commercial were the opening shot should be of a tropical field/garden/jungle with non-scandinavian flowers. Something looking like Eden.

    Some pictures can be found on

    The idea is that the mineral-water that we are trying to sell has the taste of tropical fruit.

    If i did it here in Sweden, i would go out together with a Dop/opertor and shoot the plate myself, with a red-camera, and then send the material via ftp. I would maybe bring a driver. Thats it.

    Is there someone out there that can help me with this?

    I would need this to be done in late March.

    I live in the Bahamas and I have 35 acres of a wild tropical field located on Abaco, Bahamas…

    Its local and wild plants and we can add additional flower/plants to complete the look.

    The property is on the waterfront
    and pictures are attached.

    Dear Nicias,

    From your storyboards I can see you need a tropical jungle with beach, I can certainly recommend Rincón beach, located in the north east part of the Dominican Republic and considered amongst the ten most beautiful beaches in the world. There’s also a RED camera available on the island, it would save you the travel risks and additional insurance costs. A couple of reference pics attached. Let me know if I can be of help.

    Hi Niclas,
    I think that Port Antonio in Jamaica is a perfect location for your spot.
    You can see more of Port Antonio online . It is a spectacular location that has been the background for many films including COCKTAIL and CLUB PARADISE
    These pics of Frenchman’s Cove are just a taste.
    Let me know if I can help. We also have a full RED camera kit here with a set of high speed lenses.
    I am a Production manager here on the island

    Hi Niclas,

    Belize should be on your list of potential locations.

    I just sent you an email, but if for some reason you don’t get it, contact me at or check my website at

    Hi Niclas,

    Murray from the Location Guide contacted me re this location.
    I am a Production Manager here in Jamaica and am suggesting two areas of Jamaica for this project.
    1. Port Antonio – Frenchman’s Cove Beach & Jungle Area
    2. Ocho Rios – Drax Hall Property – Columbus Cove and Jungle Area, and Laughing Waters

    The first two pictures are of Frenchman’s Cove Jungle & Beach area in Port Antonio and the 3rd and 4th pictures are of Columbus Cove – Drax Hall and a jungle area on the same property.

    Jamaica also has a red camera with a set of high speed lenses available along with grip and electric equipment as well as an excellent compliment of crew in all areas.

    To view other photographs a link as been sent to your email address.

    I hope we can be of assistance to you.
