TALENT IN CUBA

Cuba possibly has more artists, musicians, and dancers per capita then any other country in the world. And the talent is world class. Most professionals in the arts have studied at one of the many state academies in Cuba where the standards are extremely high. Havana especially is talent rich in musicians, dancers, models, fashion and set designers, and technicians that can mount most productions put before them.

LOCATIONS

The city of Havana and its outlying barrios have a unique history and its environment reflects that. There are areas in Havana that go from colonial to modern, art deco to grunge.

EQUIPMENT

Virtually all the modern film, photo, and audio equipment available in the USA is available in Havana, from high end Red cameras, the latest professional HD cameras, dollies, booms, sound equipment, sound stages, film quality lighting, editing studios.... It's all available for rent from private agencies or professionals working in the Cuban video and film industry.

VALUE
The value of doing your media project in Cuba is you will get a very high quality product for a fraction of the cost. Production costs are generally one half to one third less in Cuba.

WORKING VACATION
Work and have fun too. Cuban's enjoy life in whatever they're doing. Generally the work environment on film-video-photo sets is relaxed and congenial. Outside of work, clients will be hosted in hotels or comfortable private homes in a neighborhood close to fine restaurants and night clubs. After or during the project, groups can spend some days at the beach or exploring Havana. We can help you plan your down time providing info on the wide variety of options in this 24 hr. town.
