Indonesia Film Production Houses
Indonesia is no backwater when it comes to production. This archipelago country is one of the major contributors to the ASEAN economy. With a population of more than 260 million, it provides excellent support, locations, and intriguing story settings!
The majority of Production houses are set up in 2 very different areas, the sprawling city of Jakarta and the idyllic island of Bali. Jakarta, being the capital, is where all major support comes from. Equipment rentals, most major crews, and sound stages are all located here in abundance. In Bali, you will find many foreign-owned production companies that specialize in storytelling, documentaries, and fixing. Either location is a wonderful choice.
Jakarta and Bali Indonesia Film Locations
The metropolis of Jakarta can offer many unique exterior looks, with both Asian and Western urban themes. It is not uncommon to find proper 3-4 lane western-style boulevards and then turn a corner and happen upon a motorbike rolling along an unpaved road.
Jakarta truly provides both an advanced and traditional city landscape. Some of the largest sound stages in Asia are also located in Indonesia, as well as Davinci Grading, Flame Suites, CG teams, and VFX services. A host of film production services are all on call in Indonesia.
The historically rich island paradise of Bali has a much more relaxed feeling to it. It is a completely separate island and is a very popular tourist destination. Culturally it’s religion is primarily Hinduism, a stark contrast to the rest of Indonesia’s majority Muslim population.
Bali is a great place to film against breathtaking oceanside cliffs, in restaurants and bars, and on some of the world’s most renowned surf spots. Many documentaries choose to shoot in Bali due to the diverse subject and story content available there. Because of this, a multitude of foreign filmmakers have set up production there and remain available to assist with filming, shooting, and permits.
Jakarta and Bali Film and Equipment Rental
Jakarta has some of the best crews and equipment available in the ASEAN region. All major brands of cameras, lighting, and grip gear are available, as well as top of the line English speaking crew. When coming to shoot in Indonesia, hiring all positions locally is not unheard of, as it is easy to find great assistant directors, producers, camera crews, and post-production staff.
If you are shooting a feature film in Bali, we recommend hiring a team of crew members in Jakarta and flying them over for production. Those available locally are more specialized in naturalistic, documentary-style filmmaking, though they can help with feature production as well if need be.
