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.
