    –Hello my name is Xavier Gutierrez from Costa Rica Productions, and as you might expect I will advise you to shoot in Costa Rica.
    –One of the main reasons is that we have a variety of locations within a very small territory, very film friendly, and easy going.
    –You do need to start as soon as possible, your time frame is shorter than I would recommend for a film project.
    –We are used to help find the exact location, and fill in the needs for your story, even if your budget is limited, because we are producers ourselves with +20 year experience.
    –We have worked recently in a series for Animal Planet, we have done filming for Travel Channel, Discovery, History, and high end corporates for Panasonic, Japan and US corporations that do not allow us to mention their names.
    –We have done a lot of work for European clients. Documentaries for France, Reports for Germany, reality shows for Denmark, and video clips for AXE Paris.
    –We can provide more information at http://www.costaricaproductions,com or at my phone number (506) 8382 0572.

    Dear Miki Kuretani
    -We would be pleased to work with another Japonese company. We recently finished working with Director Kenshin Nawa on a 3D nature documentary for Panasonic Japan. It was an interesting experience for all, we managed a 30 man crew (19 Japonese plus 11Ticos), grip truck, camera truck, 5 other rental vehicles, on September 2010.
    -Our company has its main headquarters in Costa Rica, so we know how to guide you and help you out. Let us quote your project.
