Authentic characters and stories worth telling in Spain!
High quality documentaries and current affairs broadcasts overseas require good preparation.
Every good story feeds on four basic ingredients: strong characters, credible experts, excellent interviewers and unusual venues.
Popular Pictures helps you find them all, including as well as all necessary film permits.
Our endless resources make local language research easier and faster, providing better results.
We are able to track down more compelling and original stories on site.
Simple: because we live here!
Due to our extensive knowledge of the country and the media industry itself we aren’t strangers to innovative storytelling, we know how stories develop and how a script turns into a lively captivating piece.
We’re also able to detect dead ends earlier in the research process and assess the potential of a protagonist before filming begins.
We are familiar with the working procedures required and demanded by US and Northern European broadcasters.
Popular Pictures ensures a smooth and optimal production in Spain. We focus on protecting your budget and getting the most out of the production time available.
Avoid language barriers and cultural misunderstandings during Pre-production and Production.
Popular Pictures offers technical support and problem solving throughout the length of the shooting in Spain (or abroad).
We work according to your specifications, we offer shooting schedule development and production coordination, support in conducting interviews and any translation services required, plus we take care of film permits and release forms on site.
