The scope of its ethnical diversity is one of Brazil’s major attractions. The country has the cast for almost any scene. The major international model agencies, such as Ford, Mega and Elite have offices in São Paulo, representing new faces and top names. The costs of talent buy-outs compare favourably with European and U.S markets. We are able to offer the full scope of Brazilian talent. For a sample of casting archive pictures please contact us.
A growing domestic industry has created an excellent infrastructure of professionals, ranging from lab runners to helicopter pilots. Our crews have a wide experience working with overseas productions. Foreign producers, directors and DP’s are often surprised by the level of local technical expertise. We assemble the teams based on the nature, scope, and complexity of the production. We offer not only the latest technology, but also highly trained and experienced technicians ready to form a professional working team.
We provide cost-free initial research and project analysis. Due to our network of contacts throughout Brazil we offer immediate access to vital information on locations, visas, infrastructure, schedules, climate and anything that might be necessary to define your overseas shoot. The constant up-dating of our archives means that most information is on-hand for immediate reference. Blind Monkeys offers an individual, on-line source of visual references for each project, dealing with all areas of location, casting and art direction.
From an extensive location archive, Blind Monkeys provides immediate references and proposals. If we don’t have the specific location in our archives, experienced scouts will research the ideal spot, providing detailed information regarding the location, weather conditions, access, infrastructure and so on. We can obtain all shooting permits from federal, state and municipal governments, as well as cooperation from private institutions, citizens and law enforcement agencies. For a general impression of the country and to help develop storyboards or present ideas to a client, please contact us and we will send you a sample of our locations.
A reliable estimate without surprises is a key element of our work. Based on information such as schedule, crew size, format, location radius and talent requirements, we will propose an initial bid. The process of adjustment during pre-pro research is fully transparent as costs are defined and a final contract is drawn up. Overages due to additional requests during production are budgeted and approved individually. Our bid model offers the maximum of clarity and transparency according to international standards. Regardless of the scope or budget, we approach all projects the same way.
