Spain is one of the most exciting cities in the world and its wide variety of film locations combine with the perfect climate to create an ideal situation for production. With the Pyrenees on its doorstep and the most varied coastline on the Mediterranean within arm’s reach, the city of Barcelona is a perfect production base for shooting in Spain and the rest of Europe.
The city of Barcelona itself is a perfect cocktail of tradition and modernity.It has consistently been at the vanguard in terms of design and architecture and in its streets you will find works by Gaudí, Mies Van der Rohe, Herzog & de Meuron, Richard Rogers, Jean Nouvel, Alvaro Siza and Frank Gehry to name but a few. As well as futuristic buildings, Barcelona offers neighbourhoods with narrow streets, medieval quarters and picturesque squares that are filled with character and history.
The interior of Catalonia also offers stunning landscapes and natural features, including volcanoes, lakes, mountains and rivers. A unique environment and terrain that are filled with surprises. The sheer variety and chameleonic qualities of the landscape, urban environment and climates mean that you can shoot for just about any country in the world within a finite area. Whether you need the secluded and romantic bays of the Costa Brava, a medieval village, the trendiest nightclub in the city, or an elegant 19th century mansion, you only need to contact us and we will find your perfect film location.
Weather – Spain undoubtedly has the best climate in Mediterranean Europe. The guarantee of a blue sky and the unique quality of Mediterranean light mean that production can go ahead at any time of the year.
Permits – We take care of all the paperwork and negotiation regarding film permits for shooting in Spain. We negotiate with all the relevant local authorities and private landowners and we can also advise on customs requirements for the temporary import and export of production equipment into Spain.
