BossaNovaFilms Sao Paulo film production companies

BossaNovaFilms is considered one of the main production companies in Brazil, specialising in advertisement, entertainment and branded content. Besides a solid domestic production structure, the company offers five other branches in Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Uruguay and Venezuela. Last year, BossaNova won the title of 'Production Company of the Year' at Caboré 2008, the most prestigious prize in the Brazilian film industry.

The film 'Obras', directed by Luiz Ferré and shot in the depths of a 36 metre hole, is among the company's recent productions. It took five days to shoot, requiring a helicopter for aerial scenes and involving 80 people in the production process.

The film forms part of the advertising campaign for Sao Paulo State rail and subway systems, showing the expansion and link work between the two services. Click here to watch the movie and the making-of.
