Whether you plan to shoot in a remote scenic landscape or in a tasteful residential home, location scouting for professional video production is a vital component of pre-production.

Looking down over the city from up on the Corcovado or Sugarloaf Mountain, the city and its topography start to make sense. Forested mountains frame the city, just a few blocks back from its most famous beaches. Wedged in between is the upmarket Zona Sul (“South Zone”), spreading from Botafogo in Guanabara Bay, round to Copacabana, west to the chic beaches of Ipanema and Leblon, and up the steep hillsides, where expensive condominiums and favelas sit side by side. Heading north, around the shores of the bay and inland lies the city center and the sprawling northern suburbs.
