Technology innovation that makes a difference is at the heart of a brand awareness campaign that Nissan recently launched in Spain. Conceived by TBWA Spain, developed by Glassworks, and portrayed in a film produced by PSN Spain, the project adds a layer of safety to one of the world’s most dangerous professions – barnacle harvesters braving the treacherous waves on Spain’s Coast of Death.

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.

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

This month’s opening of a horizon tank in New Zealand adds a new dimension to the local film industry. PSN Partners in Asia Pacific, the Americas, and Europe are now strategically positioned to provide full shoot support in countries with operational water tanks.
Commercial filmmakers shooting a project that calls for a tank can often contain costs by choosing to shoot in a country where the rest of their creative brief can be accomplished.
PSN Partners in Mexico, Ireland, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Romania, and Australia have contributed to a newly published article in LBB that features the new water tank near Auckland while offering specs of other tanks worldwide.
And all the while having fun at it! After all, a bit of mischief keeps us on our toes. So let the kids race sports cars and fly that drone at the airport. And film it all to remind us that where there’s a will there’s most definitely a way when it comes to PSN shoot support worldwide.
Happy viewing of these films and more in our latest newsletter.
Producers shooting film and photo projects overseas have good reason to look south. While this may be the season, there are lesser-known advantages that make countries like New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Uruguay, and Chile worth considering year-round.
Need a state-of-the-art water tank? A Russian arm? How about babies galore?
LBB surveyed PSN Partners in each country, and their clients, about exchange rates, visas, drone flights, infrastructure, and more to share the results of that research in this article shining a spotlight on work and pleasure on the other side of the Equator.
