Thanks to the close collaboration with the HE, the full project dossier in English was prepared for
the city council of Ibiza. It includes film technical specs, project description, its cultural value,
marketing and distribution strategies, brand and sponsors involved, film treatment, location and cast
breakdown and production budget. The last draft of the script has been written and fully translated

assist shooting of the promo video for Grand Hotel Ibiza, camera tests during night filming in
Figueretas beach and a press conference of the XVI edition of the bike tour to Ibiza Campagnolo at
the city council. We have also completed post-production and subtitling of several promo videos for
Eiviestetic, a plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine clinic in Ibiza.

through the island, in order to identify possible locations for the upcoming production, such as Port
des Torrent, Cala d’Hort, Cala Compte, Sa Caleta which are also the island’s highlight spots.
We have successfully negotiated the terms of crew agreements with local crew members, and also
started developing some ideas on costumes, props, make up, set design and lighting with the heads
of the relative departments. Also, the NE has been contacted by Eco Radio of Ibiza and Formentera
90.0 FM in order to give an interview regarding the short film project in development.
