    Hi
    We are looking for a shooting location for one of our coming commercial projects. Specifically, we are looking for a beautiful olive grove to be shot in February, it should be sunny and beautiful!

    Please contact us via email lobas@phokus.ru

    Hi Katerina,

    I think southern Spain or Portugal are definitely the regions for you to look into.

    Will send you a mail with our specs.

    All the best,

    Hi Katerina,

    hope you are very well.

    Many thanks for posting .

    As per your request we would strongly suggest Greece an specifically the island of Crete as the location fits the requirements you mentioned in your post.

    Crete is one of the most well known olive-oil producing locations worldwide, thus is full of stunning olive groves either up in the mountains or at flat plains.
    The climate is always mild and very warm and sunny ( at the moment it is 20o C!)

    Should you wish to go ahead with this location we would be more thank happy to assist you with anything you might need at all stages of the production.
    We can provide A to Z services from research, location scouting, story development and sourcing characters to travel and aerial filming arrangements to provision of technical equipment etc.

    We look forward to hearing from you and please do feel free to contact us if you have any questions .

    Kind Regards,

    Hi,

    I think Spain is the perfect place for your commercial. The south of the country, Andalusia, is the biggest olive growing area on the planet.
    I will send you a commercial shooted in Andalusia (we were scouting for it), so you can see an example of our region.

    Please,if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

    Hello,

    In southern Spain there are a huge selection of Olive groves, and we have a good chance of good weather.
    We are based in Malaga ,and within 2 hours drive we have a good choice of olive groves.Maybe the crew would need to be overnighted, adding 10,- 15,000 to the budget.
    How many shoot days would it be for?

    Best regards,
    Dominic.
