    We are shooting a trilogy of adventure films within the next seven years that requires us to film outside of the USA. The first film will start filming next month. Even though we have a USA location for the first film, we are open to including a secondary location in that same film that is abroad.

    Which countries have simpler requirements for us to film there, VISA Requirements, and also overall simpler process to get the permissions needed to film? We will hire many of the local talent and crew members as well.

    To view the film we are producing, please visit the following website:

    For a country with several different looks of locations / people except Snow.This gives you choices that range from the coastal feel to the desert,the mountains,the forests to the lakes , tea/coffee hills and bushes,and the old colonial buildings, to the modern city of nairobi.(The New york of east Africa)

    Permissions or permits take reasonable periods and not more than two weeks…

    I can suggest shooting in Lithuania – you would need no Visas and exterior shooting permits can be acquired very easily within 3-5 days.
    Lithuania is a film-friendly country and you can find here a variety of different locations.
    My company has experience of over 20 years in producing films, TV commercials and documentaries for local and international crews.
    We have a very professional team, high quality technical equipment, a big local talent pool and our own casting database. Many people here speak English so there would be barely any language-related problems.
    You can find more information here:

    If interested – contact me at
    Or call at 0037065635612 and I can provide you with more information on shooting in Lithuania.
