FPS France developed out of Cactus Films, founded in 2009 by Thomas Buchwalder, as a collective of line producers dedicated to Film Production Services in France.
Our reputation as Production Managers and Line Producers is built from 20 years of experience in high quality execution on various small and large scale international productions.
Whether you’re looking for a full production service including line production with large groups of client and agency personnel, location scouting, casting and the hiring of local creative talent, or simply to hire a fixer or local camera team, you will benefit from our extensive network of reliable and highly skilled artistic and technical team from all over France.
“We believe that great line or service production results from working together, sharing skills, knowledge, and a passion for servicing filmmakers from different corners of the world.”
We worked on various TV commercial, corporate content and stills advertising projects for major brands including Chanel, Longines, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Ford, BMW, Citroen, Renault, VW, Mercedes, DHL, Fed Ex, Coca Cola, Siemens, JVC, Samsung, EA Sports, Puma, Wilson, Diesel, Tag Heuer, American Express and many more.
