Location

Thanks to the huge variety in architecture, Budapest is known to stand in for dozens of cities around the world. Anything from ancient ruins and castles to grand ballrooms, cafes, tree-lined streets, and modern apartments. Major greenways and parks and open scenery. Back lots cover everything from medieval castles to New York City streets. But we go way beyond Hungary for the perfect shooting location. Our reach goes international to cover sought-after spots in Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Russia, and even Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos.

Some studios offer 200-seat restaurants, permanent and guest chefs, and an ever-changing selection of meals from all corners of the world. American, International, Russian, Chinese, Thai, Italian, Greek, you name it. Gluten-free? No problem. Lactose-fee? No problem. Vegetarian? Why not. We serve highest quality café style desserts and coffee, too.

How We Do It mobile photo

How We Do It

NO MIDDLEMAN

One of our key advantages is that we provide world class, all-in-one, full-scale production services “without the middle man.” We pass the savings directly to you, with hands-on, tax rebate guidance.

ALL-IN-ONE

We do this by bringing together services and studios under one umbrella. This allows us to offer a full-suite of production services with increased efficiency and ease of execution where you have the perfect setup to make magic with everything at your fingertips.

ONE-ON-ONE

Our international team with main locations in Los Angeles and Budapest guarantees full attention to client needs and the highest customer service throughout pre-production, production and post production.

TAX REBATE AND VAT GUIDANCE

We help clients maximize the tax-rebate of the Hungarian government. One of the largest incentives in the industry up to 25% of budget and up to 31% of Hungarian production spend. VAT is reclaimable on all project-related goods and services that were purchased in Hungary.

FINANCING AND PRE-FINANCING

We help with pre-financing up to 100% of the tax rebate via special conditions backed by Central Eastern Europe’s largest bank.
