Over the last 25 years, Uruguay positioned itself as a notable hotspot for European and American filmmakers.
The great diversity of locations in such a small space is a significant attraction for foreign productions. The simplicity to obtain shooting permits and the general look of Montevideo make Uruguay an ideal film set and a very film friendly country to shoot foreign projects.
Montevideo has a very European look, where we can easily recreate a typical Parisian café and a Spanish tapas bar, only a few meters from one another.
Large and beautiful Atlantic beaches such as Punta del Este are located only an hour outside the capital city. Uruguay also counts with a very cosmopolitan population which allows for a great diversity in terms of casting. For more specific casting, it is common and standard to bring talents from neighbouring Buenos Aires.
With excellent bilingual technicians and a good variety of last generation equipment, Uruguay is an ideal country to shoot in.
