Services

   A good story needs a perfect location and a dedicated team of producers, art department, location managers, cast and crew. And not to forget, great coffee to keep up the spirits (and stay awake!)

   Our location and art department loves a good challenge and they never cease to amaze us. They can build castles in the middle of a forest, organize a carnival with dancers, magicians and jugglers on the streets of our city, create a cotton field in our studio or even build spaceship prototypes… well, not really, though they could.

   We try to make our clients feel at home when working with us in Romania, Hungary and Serbia. After all, we are Family Film, your Family Away From Home.

Locations

   Romania, Hungary, Serbia together combine all the geographical and architectural range one could possibly find in Europe: urban landscapes, mountain roads, vast fields, deep forests, lakes and sandy beaches. We don’t have just one opera house, we have a dozen to choose from. We have access to airports that allow shoots and use of all airport facilities. We have Hollywood film studios, lofty photo parlours, abandoned warehouses, elegant ballrooms and quirky cafés, modern highways, cobble stoned streets and narrow alleyways.

   Romania is very production friendly and we can get permissions to shoot almost anywhere for a very nominal fee. There are very few restrictions as opposed to other European countries. With some help from our art department, we’ve recreated locations that resemble Germany, Italy, Spain and even the medieval times. There are similarities in architecture with other European cities complete with narrow paved streets, grand opera halls, pre-war era buildings and stately homes. And in keeping with the times, we also have futuristic architecture, sky-scrapers, modern highways, public transport, open spaces and much more.

   Hungary is an interesting blend of all European cultures in one place and a top favourite for most location managers. Hungary has been used in various Hollywood & Bollywood blockbusters to resemble Paris, Monaco, Rome, Munich, Moscow, Berlin, and even Buenos Aires. An ideal location for any production where the story is set in different cities or eras. You can shoot them all in Hungary without ever having to leave the country e.g. Spy

   Our Belgrade office is the latest addition to our ever growing Family. Serbia is an exciting new location for many productions for a variety of reasons; budget friendly, world class studios & infrastructure, significantly lower crew and cast rates…and many more.

   To make it even more production friendly, Serbia doesn't require a visa for visits of up to 30 days, within period of one year.
