WELCOME

As an Orchestra, we believe in you, the Conductor.

While most companies offer services to film your project, we offer to realise your idea as you dreamed it.

Choose us if you…

  • have the best script in your life and want to done it perfectly
  • are in a desperate search to settle your film from a moderate budget
  • need a team who works on your project as much as you do
  • don’t want to compromise
  • want a good deal that only a boutique production company can offer
  • haven’t found what you’re looking for at others.

Most of the time we work on international projects. All our crew members and subcontractors are carefully selected, and tested, to meet the highest standards. Our accounting is transparent and our books are open to you.

We help to realise tv commercials, feature films, tv series and music videos in and around Hungary. 

We like to keep it professional, smart and effective.

Just the way you are.

knifeTOP SECRET PRODUCTION INFORMATION

Studios

There are three main studio complexes around Budapest and two smaller facilities (link to map).

The large ones are Origo (ex Raleigh), Korda and Mafilm. Origo and Korda are recently-built, well equipped ones, while Mafilm is the oldschool state owned studio, with one stage recently renovated.

The small studios, called Stern and Astra, are also modern and flexible ones, recommended for smaller productions. There are also dozens of very small studios good for day-shootings (green, car photography)

Korda Studios – Mafilm Studios – Origo Studios – Astra Studios – Stern Studio – Lloyd Studio – Beton – Backlots

Travel info

Hungary is within the Schengen zone of the EU. If you don’t need a visa to Paris, you don’t need it to Hungary.

Crews

Crews prefer to count their one hour lunch time into their 12-hours work day, or ask for one hour OT.
Luckily, they have a non-progressive OT system.
Turnover is 11 hours, and a working week can be 6 days.
Sunday and red-letter holidays come at double cost.
No unions.

Be sure to ask for our Hungary Rate card!

Weather

It’s a 4-season weather system, with a long and warm, mostly sunny summer, providing the best for the filmmakers between April and October.

Equipment

You’ll find most equipment necessary for your shoot in Budapest. And with a borderless EU it takes only a few hours to fly in anything you might additionally need.

Film tax incentive

It will give back to feature film productions 25 + 5%. Ask for our guide!

Permits

Public space rental / reservation has been reformed in 2013 – it’s now fast, easy and cheap.

Ask for our guide about the public space reservation system!

The express reservation takes 4 workdays in Budapest.

Set building

One of the major reasons productions come to Hungary is to capitalise on the wealth of set building know-how in the local industry.

Set building in Hungary has an excellent reputation worldwide, and a long tradition that goes back to pre WWII-times when the local film industry was  booming for the first time.

Locations

Budapest is a very versatile city, which can look like Prague, Moscow, Berlin, Paris, and even New York and Istanbul.

Of course, it is beautiful in itself, and more and more films have begun to simply film Budapest for Budapest.
