    Hi Folks,
    I am looking for a location to shoot a commercial. Scriptwise the the location is Paris, ,for budget reasons it needs to look like some typical paris neigbourhood but needs to be be somewhere else, where you can shoot for a smaller budget. I am thinking of east europe. Can someone please recommend something? Any ideas? Any references? The shooting date is not fixed but most likely feb or march 08. Thanks a lot


    Hello Alexander,
    May be Buenos Aires can be suitable for your script both location & budget wise.
    Please, e-mail me the boards and I will send you some reference pictures.

    Hi Alex,
    if you need to shoot Paris, come to Prague. It would be good to see your storyboard & know a bit more of your location needs. Then we can give you some PARIS look like ads for we’ve shot in Prague for your reference. I look forward to hearing from you.

    My best,
