Arts & Culture Inspiration Press Releases
Portugal is set to be the next big thing in the movie world and the Algarve is staking its claim on the world film-making map.

Diverse and stunning scenery within relatively short distances, ease of travel and language, and some attractive industry incentives, are factors contributing to the rise of interest. The Spy Manor Productions – MovieBox Group partnership will help to further raise the profile and bring new productions to the region.

The Infernal Machine
On July 19th, Spy Manor Productions, MovieBox and Monte Productions started shooting a new project together in the Algarve called The Infernal Machine. Directed and written by Andrew Hunt and produced by Lionel Hicks, Julian Hicks, and co-produced by Vanda Everke.

Filming will take place in the new MovieBox studio complex in Loulé and locations in the locality.
"We are excited to film the strong internationally lead cast production, The Infernal Machine, at the MovieBox studio site, which is currently at its first phase of development "- Vanda Everke, founder of Spy Manor and co-producer on the project.

“I build emotional rollercoasters, films that immerse an audience in worlds full of fear and danger, miracles and wonderment, cinematic voyages travelling across a spectrum of vehemence, leaving an audience entertained, moved, and hopeful. The Infernal Machine is the next rollercoaster that I can’t wait to build.” said Andrew Hunt.
