Technical Staff          


In recent years the increasing number of film productions in Costa Rica has accelerated and raised the film industry's technical and artistic level and greatly extended its technical operating capacity. This has only strengthened the Costa Rican film industry's infrastructure and put it in a highly competitive position.

Foreign producers and production companies don't need to arrive weighed down by unnecessary gear and crew personnel. More than 90% of the needed equipment and technical staff can be hired at a very competitive cost on a level which is equal or better than standard.

Traveling to Costa Rica with essential personnel and gear, and hiring good local technicians where there is more than adequate equipment, will result in lower production costs but with the same high quality and reliability foreign producers have come to expect.Costa Rica is the ideal locale for the audiovisual producer - with its endless variety of perfect locations with easy access, its natural beauty, temperate weather conditions, economic and political stability, good communication infrastructure, hospitable people, highly motivated and experienced professionals, and competitive cost effectiveness.

Pura Vida Films began in 2001 as a creative collaboration between Rodolfo Jimenez and Reinhart Peschke. Mr. Peschke's global film experience, and Mr Jimenez' local business expertise form the basis that is Pura Vida Films. With offices in San Jose, Costa Rica, Los Angeles, California, and Munich, Germany, production companies from all over the world are welcome to use Pura Vida Films for all their production needs in Costa Rica. And Pura Vida Films is taking steps to expand their services into Panama, Guatemala and the Dominican Republic.
