Christine Bechameil & Co

We are a company with over 25 years of experience in set painting in the domains of theatre and cinema.
We possess a wide array of technical knowledge that has been acquired through working with many different business partners. Our work process is focussed on the continuous development and exploration of visual ideas through dialogue with the customers.
We are specialists in working on large movie projects, Television, and theatre sets. We also undertake interior painting and decoration.

The company’s experience allows it to draw from a large range of accumulated painting techniques, both traditional and modern.
Our constant innovation also extends to seeking new methods of cooperation with designers and clients. Great emphasis is placed on visual research of textures, balancing colour schemes, making numerous samples, and testing out new materials.
Budgeting for large and complex projects is routinely undertaken, and the critical importance of satisfying deadlines is paramount.
