Budapest has long been a world-class location for broadcast advertising and feature film production. There are many reasons for this: first, it is at once totally unique, while at the same time, able to act as a stand in for many other European and fictional cities. Its architecture is as varied as its neighborhoods, utilizing such visually striking styles as Secessionist, Gothic and Venetian Gothic, Bauhaus, Byzantine and Art Nouveau. Budapest can do ‘bright’ with its ornate and expansive bridges, wending Danube views and grandiose boulevards; but it can also do ‘edgy’ with sooty Gothic tenements, bullet-pocked facades and brooding, almost comic-book ready streets.
In the realm of casting, Budapest is home to charismatic and distinctive talent that comprises all races, body types, complexions and looks. It is no mystery why so many Hungarians have gone onto international fame, from the Zsa Zsa Gabor to Bela Lugosi. Even Ben Afflect (Ben ‘Géza’ Afflect to us) has Hungarian blood. Let us help you tap into that stream of talent while it is still local.
In terms of technical provision, Budapest boasts state-of-the art production facilities and equipment rental houses. We have access to top level professional and expert crews, and though Budapest is a forward-thinking city, it remains a fantastic value for commercial and feature film shoots.
It is our mission at PPM to enable you to express your vision to the fullest. This means working with the most excitingly creative people in film as well as drawing from a deep reservoir of the most dependable and expert crews Central Europe has to offer.
