is a center of activity for tourists. Thousands and thousands
flock to South Florida to escape the winter ravages that the
rest of the world undergoes. This is both from North and South
America. While the U.S. is a melting pot, South Florida is
a hodge podge, with almost every ethnicity and nationality
represented to one degree or another.
With a mixture of architecture and cultures, Miami can assist
your production to produce almost any visual result. And the
actors in the area stem from every culture, allowing you to
find a variety of local talent that would be hard to replicate
anywhere else in the world.
The vibrant Cuban community puts a great backdrop to any scene,
and the coffee is virtually guaranteed to keep you up to get
those late night shots, or keep you dancing on South Beach
to the wee hours in the morning.
Then imagine staying on Miami Beach at the Carlton
Hotel or any of the other great hotels in the metropolitan
area while engaged in your production. Can you imagine a more
relaxing way to produce a film?
