"Gran Canaria and its unique weather offers a wide range of locations perfect for shooting: from the wild west to a colonial Colombian village. From a valley in New Zealand to a cliff coastline in Australia. From a Thai rainforest to a mountain range in the Middle East. From the Sahara Desert to a Moroccan town. From a Greek inspired fisherman village to a modern European city… All these locations can be recreated in just one island, Gran Canaria.
However, Gran Canaria has much more to offer. The island counts with a great set of professionals capable of creating anyone’s dream project with the highest perfection. That’s why important international brands like Loewe, Pepe Jeans London, Bershka, Pull&Bear and Reserved have chosen Gran Canaria for their new campaigns.

The best part: it is in Europe, just four hours of flying distance from the main European cities. All of this combined with a 23 ºC temperature all year round and a qualified local industry, makes Gran Canaria the perfect place to shoot.

Gran Canaria has become a great safe filming destination, an oasis in this sanitary crisis with one of the lowest levels of contagion in Europe thanks to the rapid establishment of temporary and exceptional measures for the containment of Covid-19.
Shooting in Gran Canaria is allowed by national and regional government since May 2020, as audiovisual productions are considered economic and professional activities. These productions follow the “good practice guide” from the Film and audiovisual Arts Institute (ICAA).
Nevertheless, due to Covid travel restrictions some of our local production service companies such as Macaronesia Films, Seven Islands Films, Magnetic Films have been the first of Spain to implement remote filming. Images are transmitted live in real-time, with end-to-end encryption to clients, agencies and production teams such as Pantene, DNB, La Once or the Film Commission without attending the shoot - wherever you are, you will feel that you are in Gran Canaria.
