The historic Oscar sweep accomplished by South Korean feature film Parasite is a fitting culmination of efforts made by a nation of filmmakers that knows no borders.
Filming in Spain was already underway during 2018 when South Korean producers of the Netflix series, Memories of the Alhambra, reached out to our Production Service Network to scour Europe for a train, station, and tracks they could control for filming with explosives.
Whether or not leading South Korean brands have fed or capitalized on this international production prowess, the resulting film production on location with PSN Partners worldwide is extensive. Just click to take a look at some examples.
To paraphrase another great trailblazer, we commend Parasite director, Bong Joon Ho for achieving one well-deserved step for the South Korean film industry while also making a giant leap for talented filmmakers worldwide. We hope subtitles are increasingly seen to help rather than hinder a project’s success at impacting a global audience.
PSN and its Partners can’t wait to be a part of those productions that rely on comprehensive production services abroad. To make our contribution toward audiences discovering a world filled with amazing stories.
Production work on commercial, entertainment, and factual shoots for clients from around the world during more than two decades is at the core of Michael’s experience. Highlights from his years managing production service budgets ranging from modest to over 1 million euros include feature film, sport celebrity shoots, primetime TV programming for all major US & UK channels, and events as diverse as motocross and a papal visit.
This Los Angeles native with a traveler’s soul started his own production service company overseas to share with fellow production professionals the wonders of shooting film, photo, and video projects across Spain and Portugal – the sunniest corner of Europe. Michael is as quick with a smile as he is committed to no-nonsense production workflow delivering cost-effective, quality results you can see in frame. He founded the Production Service Network in 2014 to accomplish that worldwide. He manages PSN from his base in Madrid, Barcelona, or most anywhere he has an Internet connection.
