Film Goa

Goa offers a picture perfect setting with it’s exotic, multi-hued beauty. It is culturally vibrant, and filming is hassle- free, with low production costs and easy modes of communication, and no language barriers. One can choose from a diverse range of locations and seasons, each with their own moods, offering breath-taking natural visual masterpieces. Beaches, rivers, temples, churches, a mix of modern and old European architecture, forts, heritage sites, all add to the splendour of shooting in Goa. Adventure sports, bird and animal habitats and parks are all within easy accessible distances. Goa, due to it’s small geographical area, offers you the flexibility to shoot a variety of location settings within constrained time frames. A choice of starred resorts, hotels and budget homes are also available to suit your preference and your pocket.
