    There are a lot of questions to be answered in development – even more when shooting abroad. Here at PSN we regularly field questions from producers. We’ve tapped our boots-on-the-ground production service Partners for the answers. The result is an unparalleled worldwide view of production parameters we call Top Line Specs.

    Organized by countries, this resource:

    • Demonstrates the feasibility of shooting a specific project in a specific country.
    • Spotlights key advantages to shooting in distinct countries.
    • Positions producers a step ahead of the competition when preparing a bid.
    • Identifies production realities that empower producers to adjust project planning.

    There is no cost. All you need do is sign up.

    The ins and outs

    Think of it as a living almanac. For example, the number of days required for permits to shoot with minors, fly a drone inside or outside city limits, and block street traffic. The Top Line Specs share several dozen critical criteria for major film hubs worldwide that can help determine, at a glance, the most suitable shoot location.

    The Top Line Specs also feature the local and regional availability of commonly used tools and resources. So, if a U-crane or an animal wrangler are not available locally, a producer can also consult that same sheet of Top Line Specs to see if it makes sense or if there is a precedent of bringing either, or both, in from a neighboring country.

    No doubt, each production has its unique challenges. PSN production liaisons and boots-on-the-ground Partners are always at the ready to discuss the specifics. Sharing these common parameters in the Top Line Specs of each individual country will help fast-track producer efforts to get an international shoot off the ground. Producers who know these nuts and bolts at the earliest stage of development can best determine project feasibility in a specific territory and adjust planning accordingly.

    Dynamic data in a fast-changing world

    From global pandemic to the proliferation of LED wall studios for virtual production, the list of critical considerations for a producer to wade through when determining how to execute a project brief abroad continues to evolve. PSN responds to the thirst for up-to-date knowledge accessible around the clock and around the globe.

    Our work with producers identifies new questions worth including in the Top Line Specs. By way of example, we chose to include inflation and exchange rates because some producers have recently asked. The shooting parameters that make up our Top Line Specs are updated regularly by our boots-on-the-ground Partner service companies in 50 countries.

    How to access

    PSN’s Top Line Specs are available for anyone to view. There is no paywall.

    Knowledge share is a cornerstone of PSN. We believe it is a great way to establish and build a working relationship of trust with producers that can move forward into actual production. We invite producers to sign up for access.

    The Top Line Specs are a unique tool that will help producers hone-in on what will work for their projects. Need to dig down deeper? Discuss project feasibility in several different countries? There is no substitute to talking it through with us. So let’s book a live chat.
