About us

Black Maria Film is a well-established production company based in Bucharest. With more than 18 years of experience in commercial advertising and music videos, our company has steadily developed from a small family production company to a trusted partner and creative think tank in ever bigger projects. In recent years we focused on film production, getting involved as co-producer for both feature and short film projects.

The company is represented by Stefan Hillerin, Lulu de Hillerin and Carmen Hillerin, who co-produced the international production “Love by Design”. Our co-production protfolio includes the feature film “Ca niciodata: A fost odata”, directed by Bogdan Drăgulescu, and the following short films:

Black Maria Film is able to work across all media platforms, and provide a large number of services to accommodate all production needs. Our services range from assembling the crew and casting, location scouting, to pre / during / and post production. Moreover, our set is based in Romania, therefore it allows us to be cost effective.
Since we set up, we have kept our hands-on approach and personal involvement. Our key value: to service our clients at high standards, by fully understanding their needs and expectations, and providing the best, customized solutions to their projects. While grounded in by-the-book production, we always keep one step outside of the box.
