This is the first film set in central Amazonia to provide logistic cover and specialised field production for cinema and TV teams together with accommodation and access to the natural settings of the region.
The versatility of the facilities allows the accommodation of groups of technicians, actors and support staff. Energy self-sufficiency, adaptable spaces and logistics based on multiple experiences; essential ingredients for maximum performance.
“Amazonas Film Camp” is built on a 1,500,000 m2 plot – 800 meters in front and 2 kilometers deep.
The 1st set in the Amazon dedicated to providing logistics coverage and specialized field production for professional film and TV teams.
An environment rich in nature and society, close to the supply and service centers, allows efficient and economical production strategies.
The two species of dolphins are frequently observed, smooth and scales fish, alligators, anaconda, turtles; porcupines, sloths, chameleons and bats inhabit the many uninhabited islands that make up the natural history of Paroá Bay.
Macaws, toucans, hummingbirds, oropendolas, vultures; the skies are always in motion. In the neighboring natural nurseries (Arapaima, Colossoma, etc.) the jaguars usually prowl and steal fish at night and eat them right there, leaving the unpunished marks of the party.
The terra firma jungle region is rich in felines, primates, anteaters, tapirs, songbirds, butterflies, beetles, mimetic insects…
The reality of the local inhabitant, usually an immigrant from other lands, arrived in times of spices, rubber, gold, etc; it is based on subsistence agriculture, hunting and fishing, collecting fruits and medicinal plants, and sporadic services provided to third parties according to their capabilities. Caboclos, since childhood, are able to feel and do differently from what we know in our modern societies, developing a high level of perception and intuition.
These characteristics, the result of adapting to the most diverse ecosystem on the planet, added to the innumerable skills they normally develop, make them spectacular and remarkable human beings.
In the case of indigenous societies, numerous as the characteristics that differentiate them, contact depends on several factors and will always require specific and more complex treatment.
Some of the international producers that had chosen for the Amazon Film Camp and its crew to produce films, series and documentaries that are shown worldwide:
One of the places in the world that changes the most according to the season
July to December
Clouds are few and there is a lot of sun, the temperature rises both in the air and on the water, and fish seek the depths and concentrate in the same places as their predators. On dry land, it is the time for summer fruits and means abundance for the local inhabitants.
The level of the waters slowly recedes from 10 to 20 metres according to the slope of the ground.
Infrequent sporadic rainfall. The changes are spectacular; the coast shows its outlines, wild beaches appear, and the navigation channel becomes narrow and winding.
Islands and islets emerge together with perches for fishing birds and habitats of species that are masters of the art of camouflage.
It is also the time for age-old discoveries. The whole region sees the emergence of pieces of pottery made by the indigenous peoples who lived there centuries before the arrival of the Europeans.
January to June
The waters slowly rise to their highest level in late June. In November, the rains begin; they are generally more frequent in the first quarter of the year.
The transition between the water and the jungle disappears little by little and they unite where the water enters the jungle to create dream-like scenarios.
New corridors open to penetrate the forest and with the silence of the canoes, you can navigate through the tree tops on waters full of life.
The islets disappear as do some islands and others become smaller. Everything is reflected in the waters to create an endless mirror.
The clouds filter the light and the heat lessens. The jungle on dry land continues imperturbable; now it is the time for winter fruits.
The place I recommend to find what you have been looking for.
