While filming in Russia and Russian Federation it is essential for foreign television crews to acquire the correct permits and some permissions. They are usually issued by local authorities or federal government and the police. This can often prove challenging.

Pricing of filming location permits

Pricing of film permits depends on the location you choose and we calculate it per Producer Day. It means that a producer is working entirely on your assignment one or several days.

A dedicated producer researches nuances of a chosen location and finds out if it requires any special arrangements, then communicates with local officials on your behalf or contacts private companies and owners of the location.
