The team has spoken to a vast array of industry professionals, including globe-trotting location managers, local film commissions, and budget-conscious producers who have shot in these territories, to give you invaluable on-the-ground insights.
These include details about securing permits, hiring equipment, bringing in crew, working with translators and the time it takes to actually realise the money from a cash rebate.
