A wealth of production experience spanning over twenty years
Film it in Spain is headed up by Roland Quesnel, a British media professional who has been resident in Spain since 1999.
Since 1999 Roland Quesnel has worked across a wide range of media productions. Originally working as a line producer for a production service company, he became a freelance production fixer in 2007. As the commercial and digital media landscape has diversified and evolved due to rapid technological changes, Film It In Spain has evolved to service the full range of modern media demands. Flexibility has been the key, and the absence of fixed infrastructure and overheads means economy and transparency. No problem or request is too difficult or outlandish. We always have, and continue, to accomplish all the extensive demands of our extremely varied clientele.

Live viral campaign for Skype
This project made some highly specialist demands on us. 24/7 video uplink to a website, plus a genuine call box in the middle of nowhere, where the actor could sit and answer Skype phone calls all day long for ten days! Thanks to a mate who just happened to own and run an internet phone and web service with transmitters across several mountains, we were able to supply uplink and a full telephone service. We brought in art department, camper van, and kept the production supplied and serviced for the full duration. A unique location job!

The Real Hustle
Popular Obdoc on common scams.
For series seven, large sections were filmed on the Costa featuring common holiday scams. We sourced a huge range of contributors and set up a wide range of scenarios. All of which was filmed from hidden camera positions. We pulled off a lot of difficult locations and fooled a lot of people, and it was exciting stuff, as you never know once you start filming if the scam will actually come off. Improvisation at its finest.
