Casting. Our in-house casting director works with partner agencies in the United States, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy and Spain. We also work in close collaboration with all other casting and extras agencies in Bulgaria, creating a cooperative environment to achieve the best results for our clients.
Bulgaria offers a wide range of location variety: high mountains with Alpine views, green valleys, rocky coastlines, beaches, rivers, and lakes. The Capital, Sofia, is a modern city with many historical landmarks. The city also presents ample opportunities to simulate a wide range of international locations with its varied architectural styles on display. The country’s condensed and varied territory keeps logistics easy, while the continental climate and full four seasons make the country a favorite shooting location for many international filmmakers.
