It’s time for another big thank you to our friends over at Azimut. This time around they joined us for a 2 day shoot in Mallorca. One of the great things about shooting with the guys is that we can always look forward to a good supper and a few laps around the Go-Cart track after the shoot!

Azimut Productions

Director for the commercial was Ian Emes, he was supported by Michael Van Der Veken (Executive Producer), Shaun Treloar (Producer), Tony May (DOP), Guido Konjin (Art Director) and Richard Van Der Merwe (Gaffer).

After spending two years in Mallorca, in a combined role of running all German business and heading up Production, Michael Nouri is relocating to Barcelona.

He will be charged with overseeing an exciting period of expansion for the company which will include a move into bigger offices and recruitment.

With Michael at the helm, Palma Pictures intend to capitalise on the increasing demand for its services across mainland Spain. The company has enjoyed providing an increasingly diverse portfolio of locations since taking its brand to the mainland permanently in 2012.

Michael will be our main point of contact for all clients wishing to shoot on the mainland but he will also continue to look after all our German business. Michael has 20 years of experience in executive positions in the commercial film industry. Before joining Palma Pictures, Michael spent seven years working on European sales as an Executive Producer for Stillking Films and before that as a Producer for a variety of German based production companies.

Michael Nouri

“I love what I do. I love connecting the right people together and getting the best possible results for the scripts I receive. Spain is an incredible backdrop for creativity, and with our amazing crews and first-class equipment, this is a great place to shoot.”

You can find Michael’s contact details by visiting our new website.

Palma Pictures Sustainability

During the course of 2013, we calculated that our friends, clients and crew consumed 47,000 little plastic water bottles on set with us.

A company like ours, one that prides itself on beautiful locations, stunning environments, and providing high quality production services… well, we can’t just go on like this.

Our answer is this water bottle.

Palma Pictures Water Bottles

By drinking from it, instead of a disposable plastic, we can help preserve the spaces and places we cherish and minimise our impact on the locations you love.

But there’s a catch. We can’t prove that together we’re making a difference unless you send us a pic… so tweet a quickie selfie of you and the bottle to @palmapics.

They were supported by Giada Sidoti (Producer), Cesare Danese (DOP), Cristina Manzanares (1st AD), Marcos Villarmin (Art Director), Martin Caceres (Gaffer), Guillermo Moreno (Key Grip), Monika Dybicz (Stylist) and Mariella Morreale (Hair & Make Up).
