Besides Iceland, there’s S Africa, Rio and Prague


Heard Chile is a great place to shoot too


True North Productions.


It’s all relative to what you are trying to shoot. The exchange rate has nothing to do with it really. The exchange rate between the USD and the Swiss Franc is the same. Doesn’t mean it cost the same shoot in Switzerland as it does here. European countries are just more expensive in general because cost of living is higher. Therefore crew rates, rental rates, location fees, etc can all be higher. But again, all depends on what you are shooting. Shooting a landscape of just a mountain with no talent? Might be the same as shooting a mountain landscape in Colorado or Canada. Shooting a car spot with a Russian arm, talent you have to fly in, car prep crew, maybe some drone or heli? Pay up.


Yeah. That’s helpful. The CD is like let’s do helicopter shoot on top of mountain.... knowing budget is 100k. Fucking insane.

Thinking Montreal might be more realistic


Try a drone- it’s cheaper


No. But Arni & Kinski at ‘a Whitelabel product’ are from Iceland. Shot with them in Prague and they were fantastic

NOICE thanks

Would only ever shoot there if the creative HAD to be that landscape. Not going to be cheap. What are you looking to save on?

Ditto on Truenorth though.

@SP - why is it more expensive than US if exchange rate is similar?

And is this really just a ruse to buyout the talent versus paying for SAG talent?

Lol your CD is high. Go to Utah for cheap mountain scenics. I can put you in touch with people if you need. Let me know.

Who do you recommend in Utah?

P2 - Nate Balli @ Moniker Media. Tell him Andrew Campbell reco’ed you. Also love working with Renan @ Camp4 but he’s insanely busy most of the year. We can talk more offline if you’d like. I’ve shot in Utah a ton. My email is

Genuine thoughts on back to office once a week? Besides looking for a new gig?

Hello people of San Diego! Would love to hear how y’all are affording to live here comfortably. Please state your company, position, TC, YOE, and do you have a side hustle? I’ll start - I’m an advisor in Wealth Management with TC of $70k, 3 YOE and no side hustle. Among other things, rent just jumped from $2500 to $3700 for 2 bedroom and areas were looking at.

Hey folks. 3 YOE, working in tech at a great company, and making 135K TC in Austin.

Have an admit at Columbia and received 30K in aid each year, so I anticipate paying 110K in tuition. With cost of living in upper Manhattan, estimating an additional 35K each year, so 180K total cost.

I want to stay in tech post MBA, but explore faang companies and product roles. Is this worth the cost? I figure I could make a jump in comp at least?

Has anyone been noticing that a job posting will say a company is looking for a Producer, but then the job description will say they want someone who is a writer, designer, illustrator, art director, strategist, editor etc.? The job posting will also say little to nothing regarding budgets, timeliness or anything that a traditional producer would manage.

I’m seeing this more frequently and it’s a little frustrating.

Hi! Know of anyone looking for a Sr. Or even mid level integrated producer in LA and surrounding areas?

Are most of the big agencies using music producers these days? We just started as our agency was bought by a bigger agency and I just find they do a lot of cattle calling, instead of allowing collaboration between the my team and the music house. I don’t find it to be the most effective way to find the right piece of music but we’re kind of forced to work through them now…
