Few weeks ago we (from LADG) were in a pub, talking to one of these tv production guys. He was explaining how hard his life as a tv producer is, as he had to go all the way to New Zealand to shoot a tv commercial.
I wondered why New Zealand instead of Brazil (much closer to the UK – just a 12 hour flight haha – and cheaper than New Zealand). Brazil has a great potential as a filming location, considering that you can find almost all possible natural landscapes (mountains, rain forest, beach, desert, fields, etc) and urban landscapes in there. But the language is definitely a barrier.
What a nice surprise when I saw yesterday night on tv the new BarclayCard advert, from BBH London, which was totally shoot in Brazil (Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo).
Go Brasil, Go!
