During may 2013 our crew was organizing a TV production in Russia for “Objective Productions”, UK.
Our company provided location management, production and fixer services in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. For us it was a pleasure to work with such a highly professional crew on a very interesting and complex project. A great experience and an amazing project. It was the show “Secret Princes” aired on the TLC tv channel. The main hero of the episode was Francis Alexander Mathew, a descendant of the royal house of the Romanov.
Secret Princes is an American reality television series that premiered on TLC in 2012. It shows the adventures of several nobles as they leave their home countries to look for love in America.
“I recommend Arsenio very highly indeed. Recently worked with him in St Petersburg on an American reality show and we had increasing high demands from the outset and he dealt with them all admirably. He secured difficult access to premium locations within a short time frame and was able to come up with creative solutions to any problems up to the very last minute. He’s also a thoroughly nice guy with a good sense of humor”

Avant-garde art filming production in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
During the last week of August 2012 FimspbTV organized a filming for the TV channel “Manoto 1” (part of “Marjan Television Network”, England). The filming in Russia was a part of a project dedicated to European Art. The last part of the project was about Russian Avant-garde art.
We faced some troubles due to the short time we had for getting permits from different state organizations. Russia is famous for its bureaucracy. You have to send a letter to a state organization or a museum in some 2-3 weeks for getting a permit for your filming. All the private places that were planned to be filmed – it was 100% OK. We would like to kindly thank the filming crew of the TV channel “Manoto 1”! It was a great pleasure to work with you! We hope that you’ll be coming back to Russia for filming again and again.
Our company brought to life a short film about Saint Petersburg and it’s people.
“A painter needs to finish a portrait, but he lives in Saint-Petersburg… The city sometimes can be an actor. It’s architecture can be beautifull but also dangerous. The beauty of any building has a reverse side – the fear that is provoked by the poor internal conditions. Models just can’t get to the painter’s studio, they are afraid of the building. This is a short story told by the filming director Valentin Shuster.
Client: Saint Petersburg State University of Cinema and Television. Co-work with the comittee of Culture of Saint-Petersburg
Camera: Arri Alexa
