Make It Happen.
The name of a Porsche campaign filmed in Los Angeles with our PSN Partner during the pandemic – using remote streaming to director, producer, agency, and client in Europe - is an apt description of our times.  It goes to show how filming abroad is feasible.

Future Is An Attitude.  Inspiration abounds in this worldwide Audi campaign filmed in and around Copenhagen by a leading German production house with our PSN Partner support this summer.  Creativity can thrive despite Coronavirus.

Fellow producers, and their clients, can do with a boost of confidence to help overcome the daily challenges our industry is facing.  What better way than by sharing these and many more projects executed abroad during the pandemic with the support of PSN Partners?  Click here to watch more and get inspired.

We’ve got the right attitude to make more happen with you.

For business or pleasure, Thailand is a destination that people never get enough of.  No wonder Fred Turchetti, EP at PSN Thailand, moved there many moons ago and is raising his family there.  We recently caught up with Fred to learn what keeps filmmakers coming back time and again to the Land of Smiles.

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

A: Thailand is home to world-class crews, art department, special effects, and studios.  The country has an incredibly vast range of urban, jungle, beach, and rural locations.  There is a large non-Thai talent pool including Caucasian, African, and Middle-Eastern.  Production costs in Thailand are extremely competitive compared to most other film countries.

PSN has drawn from its experience with producers of foreign productions to compile a list of considerations related to pandemic precautions necessary for a safe set.

Dramatic Drop in Production Costs Makes Both Countries Hot Spots for 2020

Choosing a country to film in is more than a creative decision.  The overall cost to shoot in one country compared to another can make all the difference.

Sustained currency devaluation in two countries known for unique locations and highly-trained crew is now tipping the scales in favour of Turkey and Argentina.

PSN Argentina’s Rémi Noiriel and PSN Turkey Chad Ozturk highlight some of the details in this interview also shared on LBB.

Q: How has your local economy changed over the past year?

There is an immersive aspect to location shoots that cannot be replicated. From the authenticity of actor performances to the bonds of crew camaraderie, we’ve all enjoyed through the unique challenges each shoot day to the memorable wrap parties.

This latest selection of PSN Partner work opens a big window to the world for armchair escapists. Enjoy the view on what we can do for your next project.

In an industry gone digital where CGI is ever more believable – even if the storylines aren’t –, it is encouraging to know that post-producers and actors agree there is no substitute for shooting on location.

The first ones in and last ones out of a location shoot are the location managers. PSN is proud to partner with the Location Managers Guild International and pleased to see due recognition among its ranks at the 6th Annual LMGI Awards next month. PSN Turkey is even among the nominees for this film!

This latest selection of recent PSN Partner work further demonstrates there really is nothing like being there. Enjoy.

That was the pivotal question I recently addressed at a gathering of commercial producers and directors in Dusseldorf drawn to discover Exceptional Places For Shooting.

Rather than hold them in suspense until the end, I hope to have not disappointed my gracious hosts at production house Zeitsprung by answering up front that there is an EXCEPTIONAL place for every creative brief.  But that doesn’t make finding it any less extraordinary.

What unites all of us as storytellers is a passion to do what it takes, go where we must, to shoot the content that advertisers can craft into a campaign to be remembered.

And at any given time there are briefs floating about that fit exceptionally in most every country where we find well-stocked film hubs at the ready to execute film and photo projects.  Searching and finding the country where a creative brief can best be realized within the confines of a target budget is the challenge.
