We know you need people who can translate your production needs and director's dreams into a reality: connect you, orient you, add unique local knowledge, flavour and access.

We know you need people who understand your production needs from afar. We know when you land in Mexico you want to run, so we offer a one stop shop where all your production and technical needs can be met under one roof. We know you need a production company that will ensure your producer's and director’s needs are met within your budget and time line.

We understand all of this, because we have 20 years working with the top international broadcast corporations and documentary makers. Our teams are used to meeting the highest standards. If you need references we can provide them from our pool of long standing clients.

Our in house team have produced several independent feature length documentary films including H2Omx which won the Ariel for best documentary - the highest recognition in Mexico. H2Omx also won the Margaret Mead film festival in New York. Cactus has teams who regularly work for the main international broadcasters, such as ABC, BBC, CBC, CNN, Al Jazeera, Discovery Channel, National Geographic, History Channel etc. on everything from breaking news to cooking shows and docu dramas. Cactus regularly do corporate videos for a number of regular clients and provide production / crewing services for international clients who prefer to handle everything long-distance.

We have an SNG Truck/Portable Fly Away that provides Internet Data Services: high bandwidth, reliable Internet and Private Local Area Network in addition to - or instead of - DVB (digital video broadcasting standard) HD. This is new technology suitable for remote shoots or massive events where the bandwidth is insufficient or non-existent. 4k, 360º over IP also available.

We want to make your filming experience in Mexico a smooth, enjoyable and productive experience. We are ready to tailor every shoot to your needs, however simple or ambitious they might be. Cactus can be your key and host to opening all the doors you need in Mexico.
