Canarian actors and extras in international productions

The professionalism of local talent travels abroad

 

Shooting of “Familienurlaub mit Freunden” (English title: Family Holidays with Friends)

British local newspaper editor Barrie Mahoney, said that the Canary Islands´ tremendous energy and vitality boil down to its diversity of people all rubbing along happily with each other. Any casting director who works frequently across the seven islands would agree with Barrie. The islands’ colourful diversity is unequalled to most parts of Europe. As a leading service production company in the Canary Islands, Seven Islands Film has worked on film projects which required casts and extras from a broad spectrum of ethnic backgrounds besides European, including Indian, African and East Asian, to name a few. The company is now in pre-production of a television series for a major Swedish production company. The series is shooting with the Canary Islands doubling for Mexico, and several Canarian actors have been cast to play supporting roles. The Canarian actors will also be getting their first taste of acting outside Spanish soil as they will be travelling to Eastern Europe in early spring to join the major Swedish actors in studio filming.

As competition soars, service production is no longer just about employing experienced crew and state-of-the-art equipment. With offices in Tenerife and Gran Canaria, Seven Islands Film understands it is time to get creative and bold in order to cater for the needs of international producers, who come the Canary Islands for its diverse range of locations in close proximity. On German TV movie “Familienurlaub mit Freunden” (English title: Family Holidays with Friends) which was shot entirely in Tenerife, the company hired more than 100 extras for its highly choreographed crowd scenes.

As one of the longest running production companies in the Canary Islands, Seven Islands Film is equipped to provide full production services to shoots of all sizes of feature film, television drama and commercials.
