Every local Brazilian production company should hold security and safety as one of its top concerns when producing a shoot, especially when bringing foreign clients into the country. Expensive equipment and foreign crews can be a desirable target for criminals in big cities in Brazil and thus precautions need to be undertaken by the production team.
As your local partner in Brazil, BPS will take into consideration the purpose of the production and where it will take place and in this way analyze the risk exposure of your shoot and present a recommendation about whether or not security guards should be integrated into the crew. The use of security guards is mostly recommended in high risk shoots, which usually are those that take place in the center of big Brazilian cities or inside favelas. Large crews carrying expensive equipment in more remote areas could also be a target and should consider having local guards escorting the shoot.
When considering a shoot in Brazil, a foreign production company should take safety seriously. That's why BPS collaborates with some of the best security companies in the capital cities in Brazil to ensure your crew is safe. In Rio de Janeiro, for instance, we work with Bodyguard Suporte Operacional, a company that has served several large clients such as NBC during the Rio Olympics in 2016 and the Rio unit of the movie Expendables with Sylvester Stallone.
