Costa Rica has always had the allure of Hollywood , photographers, and models alike, searching for that perfect photo shoot or next blockbuster hit location and hoping to capture a once in a lifetime shot. It’s no wonder why so many are drawn to Costa Rica, from our gorgeous natural beaches, our pristine rainforests, countless volcanoes, natural hot springs, exotic animals, amazing waterfalls and beyond, it is the ideal movie backdrop. Costa Rica offers a utopia of incredible locations to film the next big Hollywood blockbuster, or shoot the next hot music video. In Costa Rica, we are no stranger to grand movie productions and Hollywood A-Listers. In fact, Costa Rica has been the home to blockbusters including; After Earth starring Will and Jaden Smith, Fast & The Furious 6 starring Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster , Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez , and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson , Runner Runner starring Ben Aflec and Justin Timberlake, and the entire Jurassic Park franchise including the original Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, and The Lost World Jurassic Park just to name a few.
Recently, here at Vista Celestial, we have had the pleasure to organize and host a music video shoot and a handful of photo shoots that were such a blast to be a part of. One of our recent photo shoots featured the beautiful model and actress Hannah Jelinovic . Hannah began her modeling career at the young age of 13 in 2006, after winning a national model search, landing a coveted 5 year contract with top modeling agency Wilhelmina NY. Although she is still a very active model, Hannah has since shifted her focus to acting and recently landed a supporting role in the feature film, “Selfless”- starring Ryan Reynolds released in July of 2015. She was also recently casted as the lead (Charleston Girl) in the Darius Rucker music video “Southern Style”. With a bright future in Hollywood ahead of her, we hope to have Hannah come back soon to visit us in our tropical paradise.
