Uruguay offers all kinds of locations and landscapes to carry out the most diverse photo productions. Easy access, short distances and a wide range of location categories make this tiny country a great destination for international productions. An extensive network of highways and roads connects its varied geography.
From rolling hills to colonial constructions, from pristine beaches to modern
cities, Uruguay has an amazing potential to recreate the
most diverse film sets. Places as different as the Old Havana,
Paris, London, Germany, the Caribbean, Italy or Ireland have already been
recreated in Uruguayan landscapes.
For decades, Uruguay received multiple immigration waves from the Mediterranean countries (particularly Italy and Spain), Eastern Europe (such us Russia, Germany, Poland), and also from Africa, Asia and North America. The result in terms of audiovisual productions is a very international and racially diverse casting. Besides, the proximity to Buenos Aires allows casting in both cities to increase talent availability.
Uruguay has a solid and modern infrastructure for the photography industry. Rentals have an international standard in camera equipment, the most complete lighting, grip and electric stock, accessories and more, all at extremely competitive prices. With highly qualified and bilingual professionals, our film industry has all crew positions covered.
Uruguay is a film-friendly country. It offers multiple advantages and facilities that generate an accessible and streamlined workflow, creating the ideal conditions without going through cumbersome red tape. The photography and audiovisual industry is strongly supported by the government. All foreign productions and co-productions are VAT exempt.
