Our team acts as a fully-fledged production company in Portugal. While our fixers can autonomously sort locations, access and general production help, we are able to hire extra crew and sort logistics on project-based assignments.
The great thing about working with us is that our fixed costs are zero since everyone in our team works on a freelance basis. Our contacts in the country help us deliver in a similar way to any production company in Portugal, but at lower costs.
