Q: What makes Australia such a great destination for international productions?

Shooting amidst Old World charm can be surprisingly affordable in Hungary.  PSN Hungary Partner Zoltan and his team keep it so while providing top-drawer professional crew and even world-famous stuntmen. Here he shares a few thoughts gleaned from experience shooting commercial projects, film, television, and still photography across the country.

 

Q: Can you tell us a few top reasons projects shoot in Hungary?

We are home to a talented-filled, professional, and highly developed film industry, which has further evolved due to all the international productions filmed here with the assistance of the local crew. We have many helpful crew members who are efficient and friendly with good language skills. It is also exceptionally affordable to shoot here.

How do you shoot a fairytale?  PSN Austria Partner Iván and his team have the answer in a country where outstanding infrastructure joins the stunning peaks to valleys dotted with settings that ooze Old World charm. 


Q: Can you tell us a few top reasons projects shoot in Austria?

A:  Austria can offer extraordinary natural locations. The Alps feature vast mountainous territories with many pristine lakes, as well as characteristic winding roads. Many of these peaks and their ski resorts stay snowy all year round. The country’s flawless infrastructure is exceptional; 100% of its roads are paved, which means that even the most extreme locations are easily accessible. Also there are all sorts of special vehicles and ski lifts for transport cross-country between the cliffs. On the other hand, Austria is home to legendary urban scenery; for example, in Vienna or Salzburg. These cities are famous for their atmosphere, palaces, café houses, as well as historic places like Mozart’s birthplace.

A: Despite movie stereotypes, contemporary Greek faces cannot be distinguished from Mid or even North European ones. They are tall, light-coloured skin with brown or even blond hair. All Greek actors speak good to excellent English, with an accent most of the time.
