“We’ve just completed shooting a series of TVC’s through Abroad films in Bulgaria. As ever we were presented with a super challenging schedule but I found the support we got on the ground throughout fantastic! In particular the very generous nature of our local team and that when coming up against new problems I found everyone always to be incredibly resourceful. A great experience!”

Director (UK)

Caswell Coggins

“I found working with Abroad Films to be a very positive experience. They surrounded us with the best crew, we were so well looked after. The operation ran very smoothly and they made what was a pretty tough job to be a much easier one due to their expertise and positive welcoming attitude. I would heartily recommend them.”

Producer, Witch

Marc Zammit (UK)

“Shooting in Budapest was such a great experience! Both the crew and service company were the perfect partners, giving us professional and quick results, it's certainly one of the best places to shoot. You can feel the traditional cinematographic background within the team. From the art department to the FX team, everyone is always trying to find the best solution. Light and camera equipment are contemporary, functional and ready to shoot from high speed to live-action scenes. Looking forward to coming back to shoot in Budapest ….and be in the spa also.”

Director

Alberto Arellano (Spain)

“Budapest is called Little Paris for a good reason. I’ve shot here several times in the past and I always had a fantastic experience working with the Hungarian crew, no matter if it’s shooting a car commercial making use of the beautiful city architecture or heading out to the countryside to capture a more adventurous story. Budapest is such a film friendly city it makes me come back, again and again. It’s never a struggle to get access to the good locations and the production crews are always there to support you and put that extra mile in to help you make the project the best it can be. Definitely one of my favourite cities. Can’t wait to come back…”

“After a well-prepared and thorough PPM we arrived at the shooting with great confidence, where our positive feelings were reassured - the execution went flawlessly and professionally.”

Adam Somogyi

“We don't often get the chance to develop new commercials, so we are usually a bit concerned, especially when working with a production house for the first time. But Abroad Films managed the production from preparation through shooting to post production very professionally, to my absolute satisfaction.”
