About

As service producers in the advertising and film production realm, we connect film-makers from around the World with the most competent local department leaders to provide them with perfect conditions for their shoot, project by project, every single time. We are one of the top film production companies in Hungary - service producing mainly for advertising production companies.

COVID NOTE : with our COVID policy so far (early December 2021) all crew members and talents infected with COVID19 were filtered out either before entering our locations/sets or contacting other crew members / talents.

While we maintain a close working relationship with all of our vendors who already proved their excellence, we are constantly on the look for new, cost effective solutions. We are well aware that challenges don’t always come in forms of scripts and treatments that will predictably involve heavy art department requests, but in the form of tight budgets as well.

We are certain that our decade-long experience prepared us well, for either.
