“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…”

“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.”
