We support your project in Spain with research, location scouting, translation, permits and on-site production.
We support your documentary and TV production not just in Madrid and Barcelona, these big and vibrant cities, but also in the rest of Spain.
Of course, Madrid and Barcelona are the cultural and executive centres of Spain, where you can find an infinite number of engaging stories, characters, locations and events. And our bilingual Location Scouts, Fixers and Researchers are happy to help you with on-site research, translation, film permits and anything else needed to get your story told and your documentary filmed.
We help you to find unique stories and protagonists off the beaten track in Spain. If you are looking for English-speaking location scouts and researchers with local knowledge for a documentary production in Spain don’t look any further – this is something we have been doing for more that 10 years in Spain.
And during all those years a whole wealth of knowledge, regional experience, valuable contacts and local insights have been built up.
For your upcoming production in Spain are you looking for a capable Location Scout or just one of these special experts:
- the kind of “walking encyclopedia” that never runs out of good stories, genuine locations or local curiosities?
- an outgoing, bilingual “door-opener personality” that could even connect you to eskimos under quarantine?
Or you just want a rock solid and “versatile as a Swiss army knife” type of Stringer by your side during your shoot to translate, organise and schedule interviews, take care of release forms and help you handle local paperwork and comply with regulations.
Well, then we should have a talk about your next project here in Spain. We are a bunch of friendly, bilingual and good-humored professionals with a strong can-do attitude and what’s more – we really like to play our part in making our clients’ filming in Spain a complete success!
Besides that, after the shoot we can always show you the way to great local eateries

Have a look at some of the other projects we have serviced and see what clients say that have worked already with us:
Location-Scouting, Permits and Logistics for NHK Documentary in Spain.
We serviced a food documentary of NHK in Spain: we did location-scouting, organised permits in Barcelona and Madrid and managed during the filming all paper works & translations. Our bilingual Drivers and PA´s took care of travel, logistics and (of course!) good food.
We have worked with Popular Pictures on several productions now for stress-free shots in Barcelona and Madrid – and would not hesitate to recommend. Excellent communication right from the outset, fast and reliable. Always a pleasure to work with Matthias and his colleagues.
Research and Location-Scouting for UK Documentary Shoot, Barcelona, Spain.
We did the on-site research (contributors, location-scouting, permits) and complete on-site producing (bilingual Stringer / Fixer / Camera Crew) of a documentary project for “The Open University” (UK) about the independence movement in Catalonia, Spain.
Their service was outstanding, from obtaining permits and engaging patiently with the complex logistics before the shoot, to answering rights-related questions afterwards. Throughout the entire process, Popular Pictures were responsive, supportive, and very professional.

Location-Scouting and On-Site Research in Spain.
We did the location-scouting and on-site research for a new TV-documentary series of German broadcaster RTL in Spain.
For a new overseas format from the RTL broadcasting group we entrusted Popular Pictures with the on-site research and protagonist search in Spain. The collaboration process was swift, straightforward and reliable. We thoroughly recommend Popular Pictures. We’d gladly work with Popular Pictures again!

Location Management for TV Feature Film for German broadcaster ARD at Costa Dorada, Spain.
We did the location-scouting and management (on-site research, permits, logistical support) for the German TV feature film production “Der Auf-Schneider – Aufstieg und Fall eines deutschen Baulöwen” for Saxonia Entertainment / German public broadcaster ARD. Between Barcelona and Castellon we sorted out a location that doubled perfectly for Miami.
… I would like to thank everyone involved for their great commitment to this project. We succeeded in producing an exciting film with a mixture of ironic wink and realistic representation.
