We are a production company specialised in Latin-America and Spain.
We know how difficult can be sometimes to film in these countries. There is understanding mistakes, communication problems, cultural and linguistic differences...
This is why in Udena we decided to offer you our knowledge, experience and contacts gained over more than 4 years. We want to think of ourselves as the "missing link".
We are an English company, and we work as such. Our people are Spanish and have the best of both worlds.
Our team is specially selected and trained to know both ways and to adapt to them. That makes Udena efficient, trustworthy, professional and clear with both, English and Latin-Americans.
Forget about time difference, about language barriers or cultural misunderstandings. On the other side of the line you will always have a bilingual person based in Bristol. This person will be your personal "fixer" who will contact with various experts in permits, locations, logistics or in the field.
And during your filming trip? If you want, we can travel with you, or our field fixer will be on your side during your journey.
Because there aren´t two identical programs, we are flexible and will adapt to your particular needs.
Before we start working we like to speak to you and, when possible, meet you to see your requirements. Once we know your needs we will assign your project to one of our team members.
This person will be personally in charge of your project, will divide your needs into different areas and will be in touch with our contacts. Using specialised people in those areas will help us getting the best possible result. You will get what you need always speaking to the same person.
Why do we do it this way?
We base our work on the idea that a production involves so many different factors. Being a "fixer" doesn't mean to be good at everything. This is why we like to work with experts in a particular field when we need them. This helps the project to flow faster and better.
We can help you in almost any aspect of a production, so whatever your need is don't hesitate to contact us.
Some of our services are:
Permits and forms.
Translations: Documents and on location.
Staff and technical equipment.
Local information and local customs.
Udena is a wildlife film company, so we started collaborating with natural history programs such as BBC Life, Man Vs Wild, Human Planet, Planet Earth, Spectacled Bears: Shadow of the forest, Portillo goes to Spain and others.
Our experience with factual television started a bit later but we enjoy it as much. We have collaborated with ITV, Discovery, Zodiak Media, RDTF and BBC amongst others.
We would be very happy to add your programs to the list.
