  • I’m an Israeli producer looking to shoot a Town like Baghdad with it’s river Tigris. Can you advice?


    You can shoot in Skopje, Macedonia, and its Vardar River, it has very similar architecture… and I can help you with it and my production company…

    Let me know. I’m in LA, 11 hours behind you, and I can call you anytime you want…

    Antakya (Ancient Antioch), in Turkey can look like Bagdad. The Asi River, from Lebanon flows into town. There are some bridges accross the river. We have shot in that town before. People are friendly and lots of interesting locations. Please drop us a line if interested.

    you can watch the movie to get an idea…
    then you can contact us.

    I believe we could offer a simplified solution and recreate Bagdhad for you in Amman Jordan, where you could travel with cars and save yourself the travel expanses.
    Please don’t hesitate to contact me for further info
