Croatia offers great variety of locations suitable for feature films, experienced english-speaking crews, state-of-the-art equipment, and a great road structure. That’s what makes it increasingly popular for foreign film productions.
Let us do the the research for you, help you with the story background, suggest who to interview, book them, find locations to shoot at, organise your trip, get all the permits and liaise with the local authorities so that you can concentrate on your story.
We have a lot of experience with reality TV, be it the whole season of the series or just one episode. Trust us to find suitable locations, set it up for you and facilitate your entire shooting. We take care of all the local contracts, releases etc.
Recently, we facilitated the shooting of Croatian DHL’s part of a big international corporate project, shot in all countries where they have branches. We can either help you shoot it, or you can trust us to shoot it for you.
Send your cameraman or a self-shooter, and we’ll organise everything for him/her and help them with the locals, or just tell us what you need and we’ll be happy to shoot it for you.
Full production services for commercials.

Here’s what some of our satisfied clients wrote:

In the summer of 2016 I worked with Mirta on a shoot in Croatia for the UKTV/Discovery Channel/Discovery Science series ‘Abandoned Engineering‘. The shoot required extensive negotiations with the authorities in both Croatia and Bosnia as it took place on a very hazardous abandoned airbase on the border. Marta did a great job in getting the required permits organised and in establishing a good working relationship with the local police who accompanied the crew. Despite the terrible weather on the first day of the shoot and some delays caused by our police escort, Mirta was consistently cheerful and ready to sort out problems. I would be happy to work with her again.

Edo Sturlic was employed by RAW Television as the Camera Assistant on the filming of the Discovery Programme “Unexplained Files 2”, in Bosnia, May 2014.

Edo was a very good Camera Assistant. He was hard working, took initiative and performed his tasks with enthusiasm. Edo was a very pleasant and invaluable member of the team.
As Director of Photography I can highly recommend Edo as a Camera Assistant.

Giving reference for Mirta for a big documentary project, Kate said:

Our time together in Croatia was rather hectic and often stressful as we raced from border to border chasing the flow of refugees. I would not hesitate to recommend you for this project and think you have good skills for documentary production, research and character development

Correspondent, Reporter, CCTV America

Mirta Jusic has been employed as fixer and researcher in Croatia on specific projects for Channel Seven Australia. I was the producer on two of the assignments for the network’s flagship current affairs program Saturday Night. Mirta was required to assist our investigation, provide transport and accommodation, act as a translator and convince officials to be part of our story.

Our investigation was of a sensitive nature and Mirta handled the challenges of the project with professionalism, integrity and determination. Mirta also fitted in well with our film crew and quickly became part of our small team. Our story was a success and we went on to use Mirta on other projects.

We would have no hesitation in working with Mirta again or in recommending her for work with other media organisations in the future.

With solid background as a reporter and editor and a professional interpreter, Mirta started fixing and producing for foreign TV networks and agencies as soon as the war broke in former Yugoslavia and spent most of that decade helping her clients report from the battlefields in Croatia and Bosnia. After the war she took part in research, setting up and facilitating the shooting of numerous documentaries, and now she produces her own. 

Having worked together for almost two years on locations in Croatia and Bosnia and Hercegovina for clients like the BBC or Discovery Channel, Mirta and Edo decided to join forces and establish MIRTA PRODUCTIONS LLC, based in Zagreb, Croatia in 2014. Croatian Locations is one of the company’s brands.
