    Dear Mrs. Plitenko,

    We suggest coming to Malaga, where it’s nice, warm, sunny and green! We have over 320 days of sun and natural daylight a year. Malaga is a very historical and yet modern city. We would be very interested in knowing more about your shoot, therefore, if you could provide us more information we will be glad to help you.

    We’d like you to know that Malaga Film Office is a non-profit public organisation funded by the local City Council of Malaga and created with the mission to promote our film-friendly city, and the one-stop film office covering filming permits and municipal coordination within the city capital of Malaga. It is with great pleasure to inform you that filming in Malaga is free from city location fees for all non-commercial shoots and for commercial shoots there is only a very minimal daily fee. In addition, our very special and unique incentive; ALL shoots on the public beaches of Malaga are completely free from location fees.

    We will just point out that the following are some of the services we offer also entirely free of charge to all film shoots in Malaga:
    · Film Permits processed in only 5 business days.

    · Coordination of Police and Traffic flow management during film shoots.

    · Availability of Public Local Authority Locations; Historical & Cultural heritage monuments, Contemporary buildings, Beaches, Tropical Gardens, Mountains, and more.

    · Assistance in finding specific Locations.

    · Assistance in local Production Logistics contacts; Transport, Accommodation, Catering, Castings, and more.

    · Assistance in Local Crew & Company Contacts from our Production Directory.

    · Assistance in Audiovisual Legislation.

    Furthermore, we have over 2500 images on file of city locations available for filming, of which you can see an introduction on our website, and if you are searching for a specific location at any time please send us the brief and references and we will do our best to find it for you in Malaga!

    Hi Yana,
    How about the Canary Islands? The best weather in Europe… 20ºC daytime temperatures during winter and all types of locations in one small space. Our company, Film!CanaryIslands is based on Tenerife and we specialise in production service and equipment rental. Please visit our web-site at http://www.filmcanaryislands.com and if you want to send us a brief, I would be happy to send you some more reference pictures.
    Kind Regards,
    Andy

    Dear Yana,

    Apart from the boring (and always the same) post of the Malaga Film Office, I wanted to suggest Malaga as well, even though from a professional point of view. Most stable climate on the continent, with different places and cities along its metropolitan coast line, capable of doubling for many cities.
    If you are interested in further info, pictures, prices etc., please don’t hesitate contacting me under +34 609 50 87 88 or peter@frescofilm.com, as we would be more than happy to service your shoot.

    All the best

    Peter

    Hi Yana
    As already mentioned – Malaga on the south coast of Spain fits your brief – good weather and a variety of architecture.

    Hi Yana,

    Why don’t you think of India, where in South India the temperature will be around 24 degree celsius in December and some of the architecture that are as old as 6th century AD would be wonderful to include in the shot.

    I would suggest you to have a look at the pictures available with me, and if you think that you can deviate from the original script of Europe to include Asia India would be an ideal location for you.

    Hi,

    You should consider Argentina. It’s summer in December and it’s the most European city in South America.

    Shoot in Cape Town.. 13 hours plus light at moment and you can cheat different cities in CT itself.. Easily.. From LA to London
    Contact me if you need help. Best
