These are strange times we find ourselves in, aren't they? Like you, I am following with concern the news about the COVID-19 outbreak and trying to make sense of it all.
What's clear is that we are entering a period of significant disruption that is going to hugely impact the filmmakers community for an extended period of time.
However, if anything good come of the situation it is that there is a lot more time for research!
To support our community I started journal for my, more or less, recent fellows and other incoming international filmmakers about filming in the Czech Republic.
Fixer Service Prague News is occasional blog featuring actual information about fantastic locations, permits and legal requirements, tips on reliable local crews, equipment rental possibilities and even more convenient details about filming in the Czech Republic.
My goal is to make filming in my country easier for you. However, if you find my once a while intel and tips not useful, I am sorry for my oversight. You can unsubscribe at the bottom of this page.
And now, let's prove that there are also other sensational filming locations out of Prague!
There are many unique locations, buildings and monuments in the Western Bohemia that have attracted the attention of filmmakers in the near or distant past.
For example benedictine monastery in Kladruby...
The exquisitely decorated dome of Kladruby’s church, the pride of the local monastery, welcomes you from afar. A perfect example of a unique architectural style known as Gothic Baroque, one of the most attractive monastery complexes in the country.
Or industrial Depo 2015 in Pilsen...
The DEPO2015 industrial zone is a former transport depot. The original and unique industrial form of the premises has been preserved and used for another purpose – to create a lively space where culture and art combine with business. And it is ready to be filming location.
Or else china clay mine in Nevren...
Kaolin mine at Nevren by Pilsen is an unique monument reminding of mining technology formerly frequently used in the region. Large rooms up to 18 meters high were manually dug on several etages in relatively soft kaolinic sandstones. Kaolinic clay, which may be found there, combined with their artistic skills gave birth to many sculptures and relief signatures on walls.
There are many more fantastic filming locations in this region for very reasonable price only about an hour from Prague!
If you are interested, let me know I am happy to scout more for you or even organise a footage according to your instructions and artistic or documentary purposes with pro crew.
