Hire crew and rent film and video equipment in Brazil

São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro are known for being the hubs of the Brazilian audiovisual industry. Mainly in these two cities you can find qualified crews and all the necessary equipment to shoot the most demanding film and TV productions.

Some abroad TV productions filming their shows in Brazil like to bring their own crew and equipment to Brazil. The trust they have in their professionals is one of the reasons to do that. The same goes for equipment, sometimes it is easier to bring their own equipment from abroad, considering that the crew is familiar with them. Obviously, it is always the client's choice, but we can also offer some reliable alternatives for your production.

Bringing team from overseas.​

When bring the team from abroad, one of the things to do is organize the registration at the ANCINE (Brazil cinema agency). This register is just related to the foreign production to be filmed in Brazil, but as part of the process will demand besides others documents the identification sheets from the passport of each foreign professional who comes to film in Brazil.


We can provide this service (Ancine registration) and all details about it you can access in the link above.

Our work as Brazil fixer will be provide as well all the production and logistics needed for your team to be comfortable working in Brazil.

Hire crew in Brazil 

There is also the option for members and assistants to be from Brazil, and also working together with overseas crew. This is possible considering we have in Brazil qualified bilingual professionals who speak English and Spanish as a second language.

For long or medium duration projects, most professionals in Brazil usually work under a freelance contract as happens in the audiovisual industry around the world.  São Paulo first and Rio second are great options as a base for hiring staff and renting equipment, besides the fact that these two cities, especially São Paulo, have large airports that offer daily flights to the whole country.

These cities have a very wide range of qualified freelance professionals, from DPs, camera operators, gaffers, sound technicians, producers, production designers, directors, assistants, drone operators, among many others. 

Rent of equipments in Brazil

You can rent video equipments in all Brazilian major cities, but we strongly recommend doing it from São Paulo or maybe from Rio. In São Paulo are located the biggest rental houses with an extensive catalog of cameras, lenses, lighting, power and batteries, grip, and movement equipment. Also from São Paulo it is easier to organize all logistics and flights to other Brazilian regions.
