Abroad Film has reached the next level in its goal to provide the best quality of production service: from 2020, the British-Hungarian company offers a new location for filming in Bulgaria.
The focus area of Abroad Film has been the London-Budapest production industry. This focus is now growing even wider.
The choice is non-other than Bulgaria, a really competitive country in the industry. The advantages of filming there are immense. First of all, production in Bulgaria has an incredibly low cost although the level of expertise and competence is exceptionally high: excellent art departments, high profile film professionals, English-speaking crews. As well as the superb studios and locations making the production process incredibly effortless.
While streets and cities can be built on the lot, mountains, rivers, forests and sandy beaches with cute coastal cities are much more cost-effective if they occur naturally. All this beauty is within a relatively small area, with nothing more than a five-hour drive away from the capital, helping to keep logistics simple and costs down.
Bulgaria’s capital city, Sofia, with its wealth of ancient history, spectacular scenery and cinematic landscape, has seen an ever-growing number of filmmakers around the world discovering what makes Bulgaria special.
Attila Horvath, CEO of Abroad Film commented: "Bulgaria is such a hidden treasure for filmmakers. It has one of Europe’s most equipped studios, Nu Boyana, and its natural landscapes, ancient Roman ruins are also unique and easily accessible by short flights from all major European cities. So many productions can benefit from this."
