If you have any specific questions about bringing your project to Indonesia, we are always happy to answer them. Mbrella’s team of producers has decades of experience working in this amazing country. In the rest of this article, we’ll detail why Indonesia is a hotspot for set locations, production crew, and cinematography equipment.
Jakarta Film Production Locations
In Jakarta, producers can make use of an endless variety of exterior and interior locations. This dense city can serve as a setting for visual narratives taking place in a rustic urban atmosphere or a futuristic cityscape. Skyrises, shantytowns, thoroughfares, and markets all combine into a multi-dimensional metropolitan environment.
Should your project call for sound stage and studio lot access, some of Asia’s largest offerings preside in Jakarta. Additionally, there is plenty of access available to VFX houses, green screens, and CG services to add layers of background richness to any picture. If you can imagine it, it can be brought alive thanks to Indonesia’s established film production infrastructure.
Film Production Locations in Bali
When travelers think of paradise, Bali is often one of the next words to come to mind. Rich in history and dotted with magnificent Hindu temples, this island provides a varied, immense filming topography.
Unlike the calming tides of the Gulf of Thailand, Bali is battered with epic surf swells that blow in from the open Pacific Ocean. Awe-inspiring seaside cliffs and dormant volcanoes also combine to give this legendary island a truly panoramic scope. It’s no surprise that film productions have been setting up shop at this location since the island was put on the map.
Because of the abundant documentary production activity occurring locally, Bali has an established film and television infrastructure. Whatever is not available there is convenient to find in Jakarta, which is only a short flight away.
Jakarta and Bali Production Crew and Equipment
As far as the crew is concerned, Jakarta can offer highly trained camera crews, grip technicians, and art department professionals. It doesn’t stop there though. Experienced post-production houses can help bring your project to completion with quality editing, color correction, ADR and scoring.
Hiring an entire crew locally is a simple process there. Experienced assistant directors, gaffers, props, and wardrobe teams will work with diligence and efficiency as they ensure you achieve results beyond your expectations.
For all these reasons, any film production company will find all they may need in Indonesia. And we at Mbrella Films are here to assist you in any way, calling upon our years of experience producing superior screen content all over Southeast Asia.
