You will have heard about Peru. The secrets of its outstanding cuisine and alluring travel destinations have built upon the monumental reputation of archaeological sites like Machu Pichu.
The Peruvian filmmaking industry is the next big discovery to put this Latin American country on the map.
You will have heard about Peru because it is much more than Machu Picchu, llamas, and restaurants with the best cuisine in the world. It is also one of the countries with the greatest diversity on the planet: rich in landscapes, cultures and people of all races; where millenary cities of mud and stone coexist with others of contemporary architecture.
In a few hours by car - or a 90-minute flight - you can cross desolate deserts by the sea, travel through the enigmatic Andean mountains, and reach the heart of the Amazon. And as you see the landscapes change, you'll see the diversity of the people flourish.
At the geographical center lies Lima, where minimal rainfall is just one reason a growing audiovisual sector thrives in the varied cityscape of the only South American capital city located on the coast. From the Pacific to the Andes, Lima is the perfect hub from which to shoot coastline, highlands, and jungle. Film and photo productions count on 11 hours of daylight year-round and mild temperatures with southern hemisphere seasons in close proximity to the Equator.
Political stability and a secure economy resulting in steady interannual growth over the past decade have earned Peru its place among leading South American countries. The audiovisual sector has taken off.
Drones can be lifted almost anywhere, except archeological sites. Crew and talent are accustomed to standard 12-14- hour shoot days in a country with no unions.
Producers will find local equipment suppliers well stocked and high-end tools of the trade like Russian Arm, Motion Control, Techno Cranes, and helicopters with gyroscopic Tyler easily supplied from neighboring Chile or Colombia. Temporary admission of foreign assets & gear from further afield can also be arranged.
