A tropical gem of the Indian ocean has surfaced.  From a lush interior to a captivating coastline, the warmth of its climate is only surpassed by the warm hospitality of its people. PSN Sri Lanka Partner Priyanga T. Kumarasiri offers an insider’s look at what’s drawing creatives year-round to shoot in his homeland.

Q. What could be the best reasons to shoot in Sri Lanka?

A. To make a long list short, 365 days of summer with 12 hours of daylight, easy permitting process, visa on arrival, and the best place to duplicate India.

Nicolas Bétrancourt serves up production services in France with the knowledge and experience gained producing his own projects worldwide.   As the PSN France Partner, he offers a few keys to successful production in France in this recent discussion.

Q:  Nicolas, what could be the best reasons to shoot in France?

A:  Well, there are too many to list here but…seriously, French locations are renowned worldwide.  Of course, one may think about our historical monuments, Paris the romantic city, etc. But think about the Alps, the wild shores of Brittany, the wide beaches of Normandy, and the contemporary buildings.  I know of at least 20 cities where we could easily shoot cinematic sequences!

Q:  But in France the problem is still the language, isn’t it?
