"I'D BE ABSOLUTELY THRILLED TO RETURN AND I'M SURE THAT MANY OTHER FILM CREWS WILL BE VISITING SOON. I SHALL CERTAINLY BE TELLING WHAT A FANTASTIC TIME WE HAD."
"THE FILM (WALLANDER 3: THE DOGS OF RIGA) IS LOOKING VERY GOOD AND WE ALL REALLY ENJOYED FILMING IN LATVIA. YOUR COMPANY DID A VERY GOOD JOB -
"I LOOK FORWARD TO HAVING SOMETHING TO WORK WITH YOU
"THE WHOLE PRODUCTION TEAM WERE VERY IMPRESSED WITH LATVIAN CREW AND HOW HARD EVERYONE WORKED TO ACHIEVE SO MUCH IN SUCH A SHORT SPACE OF TIME."
"Our experience of shooting with BPF was fantastic.
The team had studied the way that big production centers work and adopted best practices wherever possible."
"Latvia was an obvious choice from the start: experienced crew, proven service company and very economical. The production went incredibly smoothly. Highly rated!"
“I would say that (in Latvia) it is possible to create a certain visual universe like nowhere else in Europe. Shooting with BPF is one of the very best service productions I have shot with worldwide.”
"The shoot was well prepared and the atmosphere on set was professional. We were looked after and nothing seemed too much trouble. I can thoroughly recommend working with BPF”
"The shoot was one of the smoothest ever! Great crew, good locations. Nothing to complain about. Really!"
BPF IS ABOUT QUALITY PRODUCTIONS, REASONABLE COSTS, TRUSTWORTHINESS, COMMITMENT AND PUTTING OUR CLIENTS INTERESTS FIRST.
WELL, LOOK NO FURTHER. RIGA HAS A LOT OF CHARACTER, WELL-DEVELOPED INDUSTRY AND THE COSTS ARE AMONG LOWEST IN EUROPE.
SHOOTING HERE IS JUST LIKE SHOOTING IN PRAGUE. ONLY RIGA IS A BIT SMALLER AND IT IS STILL BEING DISCOVERED BY THE INTERNATIONAL PRODUCERS LOOKING FOR NEW INTERESTING AND COST-EFFECTIVE PLACES TO SHOOT.
RIGA MOTION PICTURE STUDIO IS THE LARGEST
SOUND-PROOF FACILITY AMONG SEVERAL OTHERS.
