In an industry built on teamwork, Heads of Production can sometimes feel a bit lonely.  Under ever-shrinking lead time, they’re shouldered with delivering the details on the best production approach available…ANYWHERE.  Who could blame them for reaching out to the usuals - gathering estimates from production service companies in the same old countries without exploring alternatives that may be more suitable?  

There’s no room for business as usual in an ever more competitive industry.  No single producer, let alone company, has 100% of the latest local knowledge worldwide to determine the best place to shoot.  And disregarding alternatives outright leaves the door wide open for someone else to propose a location that better fits the brief.

It’s all about teamwork you can trust to deliver.  Success working with PSN Spain on past Sony projects drew Japan producers to call on us to co-produce the Bravia TVC campaign tied to the release of Blade Runner 2049.
