Tenerife Film Commission is attending this year’s major events

EFM, Kidscreen, Cartoon Movie and Series Mania, our upcoming engagements

 

 

At Tenerife Film Commission we like telling you first-hand about all the reasons and advantages that make Tenerife an increasingly attractive place for animation and live action international projects. That’s why along with local production companies, we’re travelling to the most relevant events of the first quarter of the year: European Film Market (Berlinale), Kidscreen Summit, Cartoon Movie and Series Mania

We’re taking part in Kidscreen Summit, from 11 to 14 February in Miami (US), under the Animation from Spain umbrella. Four production companies are coming with us: 3 Doubles Producciones, B-Water Studios, Mondo TV Iberoamérica and Salero Animation Studio. We’re also attending Cartoon Movie in Burdeaux (France), from 5 to 7 March.

As for feature films and series, we can meet at the European Film Market and Drama Series Days (Berlin), from 9 to 12 February at the Cinema from Spain stand (MGB, C1). Orange Valley Canarias, Kikazaru 360 and Nu Boyana Canarias are joining us in the market. And finally, we’ll be at Series Mania (Lille, France), taking place from 25 to 27 March.

In Tenerife, production companies can enjoy 40% tax rebate for foreign production or a 45-40 % tax credit for Spanish productions or co-productions. In addition, you can establish your company in the Canary Islands Special Zone (ZEC) and pay just 4% Corporate Income Tax, as opposed to 25% applicable in the rest of the country.

Apart from these advantages, production companies will also find valuable local talent, a large number of specialised production companies and technological tools like the Teide HPC supercomputer, the second most powerful in Spain, which makes rendering so much easier. But that’s not all! Tenerife offers you the chance to work in a kind, relaxing place, at the ideal temperature and surrounded by unique nature and plenty of leisure options while at the same time being in an executive professional environment plus having easy daily connections to the main cities in mainland Spain and Europe.

We’ll be at the European Film Market and Series Mania with Canary Islands Film, the Canary Islands film promotion umbrella.

EPC CANARIAS keeps developing

The company is committed to training film professionals

EPC CANARIAS is committed to training professionals, so they take part in courses in which Canarian workers can widen their knowledge and learn to handle the equipment owned by the company.

In Lanzarote different workshops have been held including a Camera Assistant Workshop where the company made available first-class professional equipment and technicians specialised in using them. The workshop was fully booked.

EPC Canarias has also collaborated with the 2018 Steadicam Gold Workshop Tenerife along with other industry companies. The course included renowned instructors like Jerry Holway, Robin Thwaites, Chris Fawcett, Danny Hallett and was supe rvised by steadicam creator Garrett Brown.

The company likes to keep their equipment updated to the demands of every production. They have purchased the new Sony Venice. With its full frame sensor, it can record up to 6k including colour spaces, like S-LOG3, which captures an incredibly dynamic range.

A new zoom has just joined EPC Canarias. The Angenieux Optimo 19.5-94mm with a T2.6 aperture. This zoom is an improved version on the previous Optimo 17-80mm. It is expected to give minimum distortion and breathing as well as a perfect homogeneity, contrasted, quality colour.

EPC provides the means for the equipment to reach the location with a new van which is available for rental. They are committed to constant improvement and training in order to offer the best service to every production.
