    Dear Mireille,

    I will email you some information about The Bahamas Film Studios where “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” and “At World’s End” were filmed. We’re close to the US, have local crews and even have a pirate ship from the period.

    You will be pleased to note that the original Robinson Crusoe was filmed on location in Tobago. Tobago also served as a location for Swiss Family Robinson, Heaven knows Mr. Allison and Fire Down Below.
    Trinidad and Tobago present unique contrasts with Trinidad’s exhuberant, cosmopolitan style complemented by Tobago’s quiet charm and soulful simplicity.
    Pristine coastlines, rainforests, mountains, savannahs, quaint fishing villages, multi-cultural sites and a variety of architectural styles create unique backdrops for stories set in a tropical landscape. Our islands’ population is reflective of diverse cultures and ethnicities.

    The making of Robinson Crusoe seems like an interesting subject and We have some beautiful locations in India like the Andaman Nicobar Islands,Lakshwadeep etc to suit the mood of the film which could be quite apt.

    Barbados would be an ideal location.

    The east coast of the island have some of the most beautiful and rugged beaches in the Caribbean.
    There are several production houses here with a range of film and video equipment and experienced crew. Our infrasturcture , roads, hotels, air/seaport telecommunications, etc make working here second to none.
