Sao Paulo Filma Video Production Background
Filma’s network of filmmakers in Sao Paulo have years of experience
Over the last three years, São Paulo has averaged 1,000 productions per year, and the number of foreign productions has tripled in the past three years. Also, it has become a favourite for Netflix Original productions, as seen in the Wachowskis’ Sense8, Brazil’s 3% and the “Striking Viper” episode from Black Mirror’s season 5. All three airports in São Paulo, two of which are international, also serve as domestic hubs for the hundreds of regional Brazilian airports. This conveniently provides easy access to the rest of Brazil should a shoot involve multiple locations. The production industry is separated into film and video, which are completely different in terms of markets. Video production companies focus more on small to medium businesses that require video content for purposes such as either corporate training or advertising. These days, video production has taken over as the best means for a successful marketing strategy.
85% of internet users watch online video content monthly, and with that said, it’s no surprise that 626 million was spent on digital video advertisements last year resulting in a 14 percent increase from the previous year. Keep reading as we detail the types of video productions that Filma produces in São Paulo and the numerous stunning locations this vibrant city has to offer.

Sao Paulo Video Production Locations

Sao Paulo’s Skyline
São Paulo’s juxtaposing architecture showcases the city’s diversity. Made up of 96 districts, the city’s crowded streets, packed avenues and delicious restaurants reveal a city difficult to classify, with multiple, and often paradoxical facets. In São Paulo, you’ll find a blend of modernist architecture, mirrored high-rise buildings and horizontal housing. Within the city’s metropolitan area, there are over 1200 buildings taller than 100 meters and 40 -55 thousand skyscrapers. At one point in time, the city boasted the tallest building in Latin America – the Martinelli Building. The Martinelli opened in 1929 at a height of 130 meters, whilst now, the Mirante do Vale is the largest building in the city standing at 170 meters in height. São Paulo is a city of low buildings, which rarely reach higher than 120 meters and are mostly residential in nature.

Avenida Paulista
Paulista Avenue was previously a residential street filled with large, baroque mansions belonging to coffee barons with many of these torn down in the 1950’s. They’ve since been replaced with multi-story buildings making it a center of luxury and business. Sao Paulo’s major banks have headquarters here and the avenue is home to a native park, many museums and cultural centers. It is also one of the main thoroughfares for city parades, road races, and other pride events.

Theatro Municipal
São Paulo’s Municipal Theatre was first constructed in 1903 and is a truly postcard-perfect place. Since being built, the Municipal Theatre has gone through several restorations in order to make it more modern while still maintaining its glamour. The theatre hosts performances by local schools for both music and dance.

Beco do Batman
Beco do Batman is a name created in the 1980s when a group of art students found graffiti of the famous comic book hero Batman on one of the walls in a narrow alleyway in Vila Madalena. The students decided to expand on the idea and shortly the entire alleyway was covered with multicoloured street art. Additionally, The Beco do Batman was one of the first open air museums dedicated to graffiti that sprung up in Latin America’s largest city.
