We work all over Spain, and have offices in Malaga, Barcelona and Madrid.
Whether your budget is 2,000 or 2,000,000 we can provide the back -up.
The company was started in 1989 by Dominic.
“There were only 2 or 3 other service companies at the time, and they didn’t do music videos, which is what we did for the first 10 years. A 21 hour day was not unusual, and then you drove an hour to the next location”.
Marcos and Iñaki became full partners in 2003 after working with the company for a number of years.
We are 3 very different creatures, so we appeal to all different kinds of folk.
The budgets are now more challenging, and there is lots of good competition around.
We try to be as competitive as possible, whilst still being safe and realistic.
We are proud to work with some of the best and the nicest production companies and agencies that there are.
“Its great to still be in the top 3 after so many years”.
What makes us stand out from our competitors:
We are 3 producing partners and we all 3 run the jobs. One of us is almost always available to turnaround budgets and provide location reference photos within a matter of hours.
We enjoy a privileged relationship with the authorities, and we know when something is not possible.
We are constantly scouting for new locations to add to our database. We enjoy what we do and have a great team who give unlimited support, weekends, midnight, whenever…
Dominic, Marcos and Iñaki.
