  • We are looking for a European country to shoot Gourmania (instant soups)the week of 17th of December. We need to have no snow at that time – the weather should be “late autumn”.
    There are 3 spots. We are thinking of outdoor shoot+studio+tabletop demo.
    Please contact me if you are interested in providing production support.

    Hola Denis,
    Your shoot requires the balance of a Mediterranean climate in a well-serviced location and we can provide both to you with local crews at various spots across Spain and Portugal. Check out for a look at our work and some of the locations you can shoot year round with no snow. Send us your specs and we’ll put together a tailor-made package to cover your needs.
    Look forward to hearing from you.
