Filming in Brazil

Brazil is seen as a growing international power following its big profile boost hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics, when production companies throughout the country worked with major international brands.

Rio de Janeiro remains one of Brazil’s main production hubs and recently hosted an action-packed Superbowl commercial for Pokémon's 20th anniversary.

Brazil continues to broaden its international appeal as a filming location and has linked with global partners including Film London in the UK to encourage more co-productions. It has no shortage of world-class locations, from the colonial architecture of its bustling cities through to the wonders of the Amazon interior.

In terms of cast Sao Paulo was a good choice as there was a good pool of Brazilian actors for our favela scene, as well as Japanese-ancestry cast for our apartment scene and Caucasian cast for our London bank scene
