On 4, 5, 6 and 7 November, Casares will become the setting for the filming of a commercial for a well known international drinks brand.
For security reasons this news was not released until late last Friday and has been well received by the council team, because, as explained the Councillor for Tourism, Pepe Carrasco, being a multinational brand it will serve to promote the image of Casares, and be of economic benefit to many residents in the local area.
The filming will bring to town a team of 50 people and 20 vehicles for 4 days, and they will need to stay in hotels, hire people for mounting and transportation of equipment and to rent private spaces. Many residents can participate as extras and the production team have indicated that they will need between 300 and 400 people earning 60 euros clear each workday.
The production team will be in Casares for several weeks choosing locations and contacting people whose permission will be necessary for filming. A casting took place last weekend in the Salón de Baile with 300 people in attendance.
