Valladolid, movie set of international shoots: a Japanese series and an Indian production
The first four-month period of 2018 and the month of May have been a good start point for Valladolid. In this period, the Film Office of Valladolid has collaborated with 23 projects, of which 16 have already been made or are in the process of filming. Specifically, 11 short films, three feature films (1 fiction and two documentaries), 1 publicity shoot and a television series. For the next few months there will be collaborations with several projects, still in the preproduction phase or search of locations, including short films, advertising, television and another Indian production feature film.
Among the projects, we can highlight two international productions that will be rolled at the end of May and beginning of June. The feature film 'Devil in Palace' by the Indian production company Divya Film Creatives is directed by Vikram Shandu. This Bollywood production combines terror and romance in the history of a group of young Indians who go to Spain for holidays. The production has all the characteristic elements of the Indian industry: love, music and a striking choreography.
The filming of the Japanese series "Magi" by TBS Vision Inc / Cross Media and the Spanish production company B-mount Film begins at the end of May. It is a fiction set in the Sixteenth Century about the arrival of the first Japaneses to Europe: four young Japaneses who reached Portugal, Spain and Italy to promote the relationship between their country and the old continent. The series will be distributed by Amazon Prime Video.
Hand in hand with the work of the Valladolid Film Office, and with the support of Valladolid City Council, these shootings will take advantage of the rich heritage and diversity of urban and rural landscapes that Valladolid offers. Nevertheless the key point, once again in Spain, is mainly the human factor. In the words of Simran Sandhu, owner of Divya Film Creatives: "We have found in Valladolid a beautiful city, but above all a place where people make it easy to shoot."
