Locations in Lebanon

With more that 300 sunny days per year and the four seasons altering from snow in the winter to sun and great weather the rest of the year, Lebanon has a lot to offer in terms of production and locations. As the country is very small (210 km coastline), there is the possibility to shoot up to 3 locations/day, even if they are far apart.

Locations: Old town, modern building, souks, beaches, rivers, grottos, historical sites, mountains, villas, roads, vibrant cities, and calm villages, war/battle scenes
