Industry insights keep you primed for our fast-paced and multi-faceted world of production. Here at the helm of PSN-Production Service Network, I’ve enjoyed the privilege of talking shop with a number of producers worldwide. Conclusion? Your experience is very worth sharing.

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?
There’s no room for business as usual in an ever more competitive industry. No single producer, let alone company, has 100% of the latest local knowledge worldwide to determine the best place to shoot. And disregarding alternatives outright leaves the door wide open for someone else to propose a location that better fits the brief.

Producers of projects for Disney, BET365, and Volvo also called once again on PSN Partners to accomplish location shooting on four continents.
Let’s work together on location!... Continue reading
We dedicate much of our time determining WHERE to shoot with our producer clients because storytelling depends so much on the setting. The director’s choice locations often play a starring role.
There’s good reason that producers of overseas projects choose their local shoot support with much trepidation. The very success of their film or photo project is at stake.
Whether it be while participating on a panel of experts at AICP meetings about foreign production or simply talking shop with producers the world over, the stories I hear from the trenches constantly remind me of how critical it is to work with a reliable, boots-on-the-ground partner.Continue reading
