We’re a production service company with offices located in the heart of Barcelona.

We understand that film production is a team sport.

In 2017, we began offering film services to foreign production companies interested in shooting in Spain. Since then, we’ve established ourselves in the advertising and film community by providing our clients with a creative and open work environment. The Rink is a place where people can have fun while meeting the demanding expectations of the industry.

We can set up camp and take you wherever your script wants to go.

In 2020, we began our collaboration with More Maria in Lisbon, Portugal which has allowed us to expand our services across a wider territory.

We’re your home away from home.

We’re not a family business but we’re definitely a business family, a team you can count on. We’re two guys who bonded over hockey and long hours on film sets. Together, we decided to create a new kind of production service company; a place where you not only get everything you need for your shoot, but you have an experience. And as dads, we’ve learned it’s not just about making great work, it’s about taking care of people and finding balance. We work hard so that you don’t have to. We genuinely want to make the industry better. We’re on your team.

Welcome to The Rink. Come play with us.

MARC BEDIA

Marc is a details man. His exceptional memory and organizational skills make him the kind of producer that ensures that every aspect of a project is managed and taken care of. Marc got on the rink early; he produced his first half-length film My Piedajuk during his undergraduate studies at The College of Santa Fe in Santa Fe, New Mexico, U.S.A. After graduation, he established himself in Mexico City where he learned the grand-scale method of filmmaking and gained experience at all levels of production from highly structured feature films to independent movies and commercials. During his time in Mexico, he worked on distinguished feature films that include Perdita Durango, La Ley de Herodes and Y Tu Mamá También, among others.

In 2003, Marc returned to his native home of Barcelona and joined The Lift Barcelona where he quickly assumed the role of executive producer; specializing in production services and working and collaborating with some of the most important producers in the world. Throughout his career, Marc has worked on projects that have allowed him to grow not only professionally, but creatively. He was executive producer in charge of the production service on the now iconic ad campaign Epic Split for Volvo featuring Jean-Claude Van Damme. And in 2019, he shot the mini road movie Volvo Open Road in the Spaghetti Western world capital, Almeria. Another significant project in Marc’s career was his collaboration with world-renowned director, Floria Sigismondi on this Samsung Curve commercial.

PERE CAVANILLAS

Pere is a doer. He’s the team’s hands-on problem solver and renaissance man whose career adventures have led him from working as a fishmonger at a local market to filling out prescriptions at an all-night pharmacy to settling bets as a Casino croupier. As you can imagine, he’s also got a lot of great stories to tell. The production bug first bit Pere while working in music festivals and eventually led him to the world of advertising. A self-taught producer, Pere began his career in 1998 as a freelancer; honing his craft on the sets of a number of Spain’s top production houses. This diversity of experience and ability to transfer skills are what set him apart and have made him the 360-degree producer he is today. He has the ability to see a project from all angles; taking each and every department into consideration and making the adaptations necessary to get the job done.

Pere used this global vision to coordinate the technical intricacies involved in creating one of the most talked about stunts in advertising history. The unforgettable Epic Split for Volvo featured Jean-Claude Van Damme performing the splits on two moving vehicles and was shot in just one take. In 2017, Pere produced the pioneer project Volvo S60, which used the latest technology to shoot a car commercial in a way that most people would have thought was impossible. In the same spirit of the impossible becoming possible, Pere produced the inspirational spot What-If  for Ikea with award-winning Swedish director Maceo Frost.
