Shift Focus To Quality And Cost Control Alternative

Global content producers know that there is no such thing as a ‘one size fits all’ for local production support.  This is demonstrated time and again by the many requests producers give us as their local production partners.


PSN is a one-stop, global shop for cost-effective media production.  In a digital landscape where online storytelling is earning an ever-increasing share of advertising budgets, we've proven our capacity to work outside the once dominant TVC model to meet the demands of live action shooting of brand content for the likes of Sony Japan, MRF India, and Nike US.

“A huge thank you," wrote Daniel Jones, AKQA Account Director for Nike, in the Snapchat campaign with football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in Madrid.  “It was one of the most enjoyable shoots I’ve experienced, and it was a pleasure watching you all work. I really felt privileged for us to be part of your team over those three days. We learned a lot from you all.”

Summer 2014 was another gloriously sunny one in Ireland (not always known for its good weather!), and we were delighted to welcome our friends from Tohokushinsya Film Corporation (TFC) Japan back to Ireland.  We first worked with TFC about 4 years ago when we spent an equally glorious month in the south west of Ireland working on a short film with them.

This time they returned to shoot a commercial for Toyota Japan directed by Kosai and shot by Ekkehart Pollack

The makers of Indonesia’s leading tobacco brand, Sampoerna, touched down in Madrid this summer for a smoke-free commercial production that would leave Jules Verne’s head spinning.  More than 50 years after makers of the classic film adaptation to Around the World in 80 Days featured a village outside Spain’s capital city, producers from The Sweet Shop and Lynx Films called on our Production Service Network (PSN) in Spain to achieve a sort of flipside – shoot scenes from around the world in 80 hours.

We have a European solution to the challenge of producing cost-effective shoots in some of the most expensive countries on the Old Continent.  Our Production Service Network (PSN) has successfully serviced shoots in Austria with crew and equipment from neighboring countries.

Shooting a series of promos for cinematic release during the production of medieval reality adventure The Quest prompted Disney-owned ABC Television to find local production services that could meet its ambitious brief to shoot on Arri Alexa with a TV budget.
