Testimonials

testimonio.jpg

“We decided to shoot the film in Colombia for Mainly two reasons , One was that the story was actually set in Colombia so it was convenient , we all wanted to shoot in a country where the story actually took place so that’s why we look for Colombia first but like every other movie we are always going where the rebates and the tax incentives are so naturally we have to look at few other countries and even states when we made the decision and we look at From Costa Rica to Puerto Rico to the Dominican republic and ultimate we just thought that we had the best crew here , the biggest pool of local actors , the best rebate and again beautiful locations and locations that were really were our story took place so it was kind of a natural perfect fit.”
