WELCOME TO SETUP PRODUCTION SERVICES S.L.

 

WE SET YOU UP. THE ONE STOP SERVICE STATION FOR YOUR PHOTO- OR FILM PROJECTS  BASED IN BARCELONA AND SERVICING ALL OF SPAIN

SET OF THOUGHTS BY A COMPANY

 

IN ALMOST 20 EXCITING YEARS OF SERVICE A LOT HAS HAPPENED.

WE´VE GONE FROM POLAROIDS TO LIVE STREAMS ON iPADS, FROM PUSHING AND PULLING SLIDES TO THE CONTROLS IN CAPTURE ONE, FROM HELICOPTERS TO DRONES. SUPERMODELS FROM THE PAST ARE TODAY‘S TRENDY AND COMMON PEOPLE, CASTED ON TV OR IN THE SOCIAL MEDIA.

FILMMAKERS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS HAVE A TECHNICAL VARIETY ON DISPLAY THAT BY FAR SURPASSES THE CHEMISTRY-BASED SUPPORT FROM THE LABS, LIGHTMETERS ARE NO LONGER STANDARD EQUIPMENT.

BUT IS THIS ULTIMATELY CHANGING OUR PERCEPTION OF A PICTURE, BE IT STILL OR MOVING?

 

WE SEE WHAT WAS VALID AND WILL BE THE STANDARD OF QUALITY:

A GOOD PICTURE IS A GOOD PICTURE IS A GOOD PICTURE, BE IT STILL OR MOVING...

 

AT SETUP WE UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS AND THERE WILL BE NO SUBSTITUTE FOR THE INDIVIDUALITY AND FRESHNESS OF IMAGES TAKEN TO BE PUBLISHED IN TODAY‘S ADS OR EDITORIALS, TV-SPOTS OR VIRALS.

WHOEVER EXPLORES A NEW DIRECTION IN THE CREATIVE PROCESS OR NEEDS SOMETHING SPECIAL STILL WORKS WITH PROFESSIONALS ON THE BEST AFFORDABLE LEVEL. HERE WE ARE: FRESHLY UPDATED AND READY FOR YOUR BUSINESS.

 

WE MAKE SPAIN YOUR TURF. COME AND BE AS FREE AS YOU CAN BE.

Fashion Videos, Making Of and Image Films

 

Whoever needs a moving picture, shot during- or accompanying a photo session, we have the skills and manpower. Please see for yourself by watching the displayed videos.

Working with great local talent, so far we conceptualized and realized a diversity of videos for El Corte Inglés and Sfera, Tape Original, Birkenstock shoes and Svarowski. Thanks to my directing mentors: Martin Kriegler, Ingo Haeckes, Stephan Müller, Jörg Thommes, Frank Nesemann and Bernd Opitz, I gained experience in directing and most of all, in adapting anything to any situation in order to achieve a great result. Needless to say, that whatever the project may be, we recommend a suitable director and DoP for a successful shoot and our network reaches Barcelona, Madrid, Seville, Spain, the balearic and canary islands.

SETTING IT STRAIGHT

 

ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT REASONS WHY YOU WORK WITH US? BECAUSE OF 300 SUNSHINE DAYS PER YEAR IN SPAIN, ITS DIVERSITY IN LANDSCAPES AND ARCHITECTURE.

YOUR DREAM LOCATION IS WITHIN REACH. BE IT THE WHITE SANDY BEACH OR A SPECTACULAR VILLA OVERLOOKING THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA, VAST DESERTED AREAS OR A DAMP FOREST, MOUNTAINS AND LAKES, ABANDONED CASTLES AND COZY FINCAS. TRY OUR DATABASE AND FIND OUT WHATS IN STORE FOR YOUR NEXT PROJECT IN SPAIN.

Spain

is known for its diversity in landscapes. From pristine beaches to snowy mountains, from modern cities to the desert - its all here and within reach of Barcelona and Madrid. Be it the curvy road or the spectacular building, your car commercial or fashion shoot is just a quick plane ride away. Count on our extensive location database to find the right spots for your projects.

BARCELONA

THE BEACHES, MOUNTAINS, MODERN ARCHITECTURE AND GAUDI LOCATIONS ARE AMONG THE MOST INTERESTING BACKDROPS IN EUROPE. AND THERE IS WAY MORE TO ,LA CIUDAD CONDAL‘ AS WE CALL BARCELONA: THE CITY OF COUNTS. ONE OF THE MAJOR GLOBAL CITIES WITH A VAST VARIETY OF PEOPLE INFLUENCING ARTS, MUSIC AND SCIENCE ON A GLOBAL LEVEL. BARCELONA IS HOME TO FORMULA 1 RACING, SHAKIRA, THE SONAR FESTIVAL, MESSI, THE BRANDERY, FERRAN ADRIÁ, 080 FASHION, AND THE LIST CAN GO ON UNTIL THE LIGHTS GO OUT...

MADRID

THE CAPITAL OF SPAIN HAS TAKEN OVER: ”THE CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS” IS NO LONGER NYC.

COME AND FEEL TRULY COSMO-POLITE. MADTOWN AND PRIDE OF SPAIN, KING FELIPE‘S RESIDENCE IS THE GEOGRAPHICAL CENTER OF THE COUNTRY, HOSTS THE MOST IMPORTANT ART COLLECTIONS AND KEEPS INSPIRING WRITERS BECAUSE OF ITS PECULIARITIES THAT STILL REMIND OF DON QUIJOTE'S ADVENTURES. PRESENT DAY MADRILEÑOS ARE A RELAXED AND FRIENDLY BUNCH WHO START THE NIGHT OUT VERY LATE. ALL WAYS LEAD TO ROME? AT LEAST IN SPAIN THEY END UP AT PLAZA MAYOR, IN ONE OF THE TAPAS BARS WHERE THEY SERVE CALAMARI SANDWICHES. ONE OTHER THING: YOU´LL NEVER MISS A FOOTBALL MATCH IN MADRID!

SEVILLE (SEVILLA)

THE SOUTHERN GEM, WHERE PAST AND PRESENT SPAIN ARE IN CONSTANT DIALOGUE. AFTER THE MOORISH WARS, SEVILLA WAS PORT CITY TO THE CONQUERERS, GOT RICH IN ARCHITECTURE SETTLED BETWEEN ARABIC AND GOTHIC INFLUENCES. ITS COMMERCE AND FOLCLORIC TRADITION MADE SEVILLA BECOME THE EUROPEAN CENTER OF TOBACCO PROCESSING AND BIRTHPLACE TO BULLFIGHTING AND FLAMENCO. AFTER SEVERAL WORLD EXHIBITIONS, VARIOUS MODERNIZATIONS IN ITS CONNECTIVITY, THE CITY IS NOW ONE OF SPAINS MAJOR TOURIST DESTINATIONS AND POPULAR FOR ITS INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITIES.

Fuerteventura

One of our favorite destinations: with only two seasons: spring and summer, the island provides with white sandy beaches, dunes, red and black rock mountains and vulcanic landscapes. With recently built modern pools and houses, the white washed buildings make a superb contrast with the diversity of cactus and coloured sands. We can even rent one of the modern villas during our stay and use it as a location... (sleeping 7 people).

Our great team of professionals and a fully equipped food truck accompanying the shoots, make this canary island a top destination for fashion catalogues.

Mallorca

the biggest of the balearic islands offers everything you need for a successful shoot. Its beaches, lakes and mountains, fully equipped rental studios, modern houses and the classical "fincas" Mallorca is known for... Palma is an international destination and our second home base with all the production gear you may need. There are model-, kids- and actors agencies, a great many prop shops... the works. Come see for yourself.

AN INTERVIEW...

 

SETTING IT OUT WITH THE BOSS ON ORGANIZING A TV-SPOT OR PHOTO SHOOT: THANK GOD HE GIVES QUICK ANSWERS...

 

SO HOW YOU SET IT ALL UP, WHAT ARE YOU ACTUALLY DOING?

ITS A LOT OF PHONE CALLS AND EMAILS UNTIL WE HIT THE ROAD. BUT IN A NUTSHELL? IF YOU ARE A PRECISION DRIVER WITH OUTSTANDING ORGANIZATIONAL TALENT AND A TEAM PLAYER ON DIFFERENT COMMAND LEVELS ALL AT ONCE...

 

WHATS YOUR SECRET FOR BEING IN THE BUSINESS FOR HALF YOUR LIFE?

HONESTY AND UNPRETENTIOUSNESS.

 

IF YOU ASK ME, WHAT I DO AS YOUR PRODUCER MY ANSWER IS AS SIMPLE AS THAT:

I SOLVE THE PROBLEMS BEFORE THEY CAN COMPROMISE THE JOB! ANYTHING ELSE IS NOT ENOUGH.

THATS WHAT I ACTUALLY DO.

 

IT SEEMS TO BE A JOB WHERE STUDIES AND SCIENCE DON´T HELP?

YES THEY DO: AS MANY LANGUAGES AS YOU MAY BE ABLE TO SPEAK CAN GET YOU IN CONTACT WITH MORE INTERNATIONAL CLIENTS. AND SCIENCE? I THINK THERE IS ONE SCIENCE WE SHOULD BE STUDYING MORE, EVEN MAKE IT INTO AN ART FORM... AND THAT IS EMPATHY.

 

YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR PROJECT, YOU WANT IT TO BE SUCCESSFUL. WE UNDERSTAND THAT. WE CARE AND TOGETHER WE ACHIEVE YOUR GOAL.
