#6 Why filming in Spain?

Amazing locations: Spain’s diverse landscapes and attractive subsidies have long held foreign filmmakers in its thrall. From Spaghetti Westerns to Game of Thrones, we take a look at how Spain attracts some of the world’s top productions and became one of the most popular filming destinations on the planet.

Tax incentives: Foreign companies shooting in Spain get a 20 per cent tax rebate, which increases to 40 per cent in the Canary Islands and to 35 per cent in Navarra. These attractive incentives are the reason why more and more productions are coming to Spain.

Perfect weather: Spain is an ideal location for shooting, and a place where weather delays are unlikely. The variety of climates, too, attracts filmmakers. From the desert of Almería to the snowcapped Sierra Nevada and Pyrenees, Spain is diverse enough to fill any necessary backdrop

Skills: Spain is home to a skilled workforce from directors and extras to technicians, engineers and cameramen.

Enough Talk, Let’s Build Something Together

Still need more reasons for chosing us as your fixer in Spain?

What do you do?

We offer a full-service experience adapted to your needs. We will organise the production process, from the first steps all the way through to delivery, including designing the creative idea, creating a shooting plan, coordinating the shooting itself and post-production refinements.

Whether you need a single video or an ongoing content partner, we will handle every aspect of the project.

Do you work all around Spain?

Yes, we do!

We partner with a network of the most experienced local professionals, so we are present in every corner of the country.

Can you help with film permits?

Sure.

We have a close relationship with local authorities, so the often arduous process of applying for filming permits becomes smoother and faster with us.

What if we want to film in more than one city?

No problem! Our extensive network of producers can help you a all around Spain.

I need a video. How much does it cost?

The short answer? It depends.

Pricing a video production requires as much information about the project as possible. We need to know the ins and outs of your project in order to make sure we approach it in the most strategic way possible. We want your production to match your needs and our team will work with you to figure out the best solution for your business at a reasonable price.

Payment method

We usually ask for part of the budget to be paid in advance. The rest should be paid right after the shooting. Any extra requirements that may arise should be added either to the second invoice or to a third extra one.

What is your process like?

Our process is focused on delivering the best video at the most cost-effective price:

  1. Every project starts with a conversation to understand the project, creative consultations with the client, creating storyboards and scripts if necessary and scheduling the shoot dates.
  2. We prepare your proposal, which outlines our suggested approach and includes an indicative budget including a breakdown per department.
  3. We’ll organise the crew and the equipment hire.
  4. We’ll oversee the work during the shooting days.
  5. Finally, we’ll prepare the material for delivery: editing, motion graphics work, title design, sound design, colour grading, transciption and translation…

What can I expect on the shooting day?

Sets are crazy, chaotic places; and shooting days on a film set can be arduous and demanding. With early starts and late finishes, a film production can be just as physically demanding as it is mentally.

This is why preproduction is essential. The most exhaustively the shooting is planned, the smoother the shooting will be.

So sit back and relax. Our producers got you covered!

We want to shoot in Spain, but are not able to travel. Do you do remote shootings?

Remote productions are a great solution for clients that want to supervise the shooting without needing to be physically present. For brands, agencies and production companies that have never considered remote production, the approach may seem dissuading, but with the right partners, communication setup and mentality the results are worthwhile.

In remote productions, camera feeds are streamed in real time to those who are unable to be physically present on set. Communication channels are established too to make sure that remote participants can contribute, approve takes and direct as if they were on set themselves.

Are you able to provide talent?

Absolutely, we have a database of models/talent agencies that we have worked with and we will show you potential options for your project.

Do you have your own equipment?

We do own some equipment, and have a great relationship with the best rental houses in the country.

We need a last minute request. Can you help?

Absolutely. Please get in touch to discuss your project and timescales. We have an in-house team and can deliver great results quickly.

Can you also help with postproduction?

Of course, we can provide some in house editing services or contact one of our talented contacts for those post production needs which are more demanding.

How will the final product be delivered?

The final product can be delivered in whatever format you need. The two most common ways to do this are:

  1. Shiping the data on a hard drive through a local courier or shipping provider.
  2. Sending data via one of several cloud-based sharing services and making that data available to others to download.

I don't know where to start.

Don’t hesitate and tell us about your project! We’ll send a proposal with a custom strategy and a creative approach for your project.

It´s time to build something together.
