A treasured destination of filmmakers awaits. It is the Jewel of Europe that is Prague

We’ve spent the past 25 years working with foreign producers and directors to make movie magic in its medieval streets, iconic studios, and gorgeous countryside. Let us share its charms with you.

At the foundation of our company is a long-standing collaboration between English producer, Kevan van Thompson and Czech producer, Vaclav Mottl. In 2021, English producer Nick Saward spearheaded the opening of a company division dedicated to short form commercial projects.  We are truly a partnership of both Czech and English cultures, taking the best from both worlds to provide top-notch production services for long and short format projects.

We’ve facilitated the production of dozens of feature films including Oscar winning JoJo Rabbit, A Boy Called Christmas and The Zookeeper’s Wife, as well as period TV Series The Three Musketeers, and Dangerous Liaisons. More recently we’ve serviced commercials for Hewlett Packard, OnePlus Nord, and Sony Bravia, to name a few. We pride ourselves in delivering the best possible production experience without compromise.

We guide filmmakers through the entire process, from pre-production and budgeting through locations, scheduling, talent acquisition and more. And if you want to take it further, we can offer post-production services as well. Our approach is hands-on when it comes to production; we are there every step of the way.

The Czech Republic is home to lush countryside and picturesque mountains dotted with luxurious villas and UNESCO World Heritage sites. There are few countries around the world that can boast the wealth of architecture to match all that’s available to filmmakers here at such short distances. In the film hub that is Prague, modern buildings have played a role in many film and commercial shoots at locations that stand in for other large cities around the globe, especially in Europe. We have doubled Prague for Moscow, Vienna, Milan, and New York in recent years. Our renowned historical architecture is a suitable backdrop for period shoots. Need Berlin in the 1880s? We got it. London in the 1700s? We got it. Need to shoot for Paris, but don’t have the budget? We got that too.

Need more? Our offices are based onsite at the world-famous Barrandov Studios. German-designed and built to last, these massive sound stages have sliding walls that allow for expanding or segmenting the total floor space. For outdoor set builds, there’s a large backlot adjacent. Barrandov is the biggest and the best so it’s our favorite, but there are many other studios available in Prague as well.

Czech crews are among the best in the world. With a history of filmmaking dating back to the 1920’s, Czechs have honed and perfected their craft over the years. Cinematographers and camera crews commonly win awards. Production designers, architects, and art department are artisans in their own right and can create entire worlds from absolutely nothing. Makeup and hair teams are second-to-none, as is every other department filmmakers need.

For producers, directors and any other traveling crew looking to stay in Prague for a few months, we entrust their comfort in our dedicated travel and accommodation experts who will find an apartment or hotel matching individual requirements. Our relations with local establishments enable us to find exactly what’s needed at the best possible rates.

Nick brings a lifetime of experience to his role managing commercial and short form projects for our team in Prague. He worked his way up to producer…

[cont.] over more than 15 years in the UK where he helmed campaigns for leading global agencies and international clients like Renault, Mazda, Toyota, Heineken, Cadbury, Schweppes, Cancer Research, Red Cross and Save the Children.

He moved to Prague in 2002 – initially for 6 months at a large local company – where he met his wife Pavlina and settled in to produce multiple commercials and service productions in Czech Republic. His experience filming in 25 countries around the world ensures a thorough understanding of the expectations of foreign filmmakers and how to deliver without disappointment.

Nick and Pavlina launched an agency for directors, DoP’s and technicians in 2009 that foreign producers continue to tap into for local talent behind the camera.

Since 2021, Nick’s work has focused on production service for everything from One Plus Mobile Phones and Four Sigmatic Coffee to Poland’s Next Top Model.

On top of his interest in feature films, Nick is a massive sports fan who grew up playing the usual ones and representing England juniors at field hockey. He’s a supporter of a London Football Club that will remain unnamed until coaxed into revealing it.
