The Austrian Alps are a singularly enormous mountain range with towering peaks thousands of meters high offering breathtaking panoramic views. The exceptional locations here have inspired many filmmakers to capture the luxury, sport, adventure and intrigue.
The Alps have always drawn spy stories. The Living Daylights, featuring Timothy Dalton as Bond, was shot in Begrenzt in the Alps in 1987. Quantum of Solace was filmed in Feldkirch in 2008, starring Daniel Craig. Maybe this has something to do with the quirky fact that Ian Fleming actually learned to ski in Tyrol while he was studying in a school run by a former British spy.Continue reading
Peru is an emerging shoot destination sure to surprise many producers outside Latin America. The quality shoot support on hand to help capture a colorful variety of locations and faces ensures fresh results in camera at costs that are hard to beat in neighboring countries.
Nothing beats a familiar face in a strange land. No surprise then that local production service management is a top reason for the success of overseas shoots. That’s just one determination from the first PSN industry survey of content creators working in foreign countries.
Russia 2018 has already delivered some memorable moments. Viewership of the global event dwarfs even the Super Bowl so advertisers pour blood, sweat, tears, and money to score.

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?
