Video Production Company Cambodia
While Cambodia doesn’t offer any specific industry tax breaks as of now, it pitches itself as one of the cheapest film locations in the world. This makes Cambodia a high-value video production destination. Furthermore, film production imports such as camera gear are not taxed on arrival or exit. Instead, they are defined as temporary imports. Features, TVCs, online commercials, and social media video productions are all increasingly setting up in Cambodia for good reason.
The focus of the bulk of Cambodia’s video production company infrastructure is in Phnom Penh, the capital. Here is where any visiting music video or social media video production finds a wealth of talent and equipment options. Local crew are well-versed on western production standards and speak excellent English. Transportation resources mobilize on call, and Cambodia’s improved road network makes all corners of this country’s diverse geography accessible.
Visiting video production companies to Cambodia can expect to find the latest gear on hand, including ARRI, Sony, and Red. Top tier local talent can fulfill major and minor roles on set, including adept AD’s, prop departments and professional gaffers.
Social Media Video Production Cambodia
In Cambodia, the internet is almost synonymous with Facebook. In this highly connected nation, any company that isn’t tapping into this online marketing potential risks losing brand recognition. Brands looking to make their presence known among local consumers for the first time as well as established names continue to shoot TVCs and viral marketing spots here. For all the same reasons why foreign companies choose Cambodia for production, local film producers are making the most out of their strategic location.
As Cambodia’s populace continues to purchase smartphones and watch video content, more and more online commercials and web series have shot here. The high-quality video content produced in Cambodia as of late has continued to enthrall audiences on Youtube, Instagram, and all social media outlets. There has never been a better time to access what Cambodia has to offer. It is a wonderful destination for shooting video and offers access to abundant advertising demographics.

Another hot sector for local and visiting TVC production companies is the mobile technology market. Cambodians are fast adopting the latest smartphone technologies and major international brands are paying heed. The beverages industry also remains a steadfast local favorite.

Keep reading for some fascinating history on Cambodia’s native film and television industry, plus more on this country’s incredible locations.
Shortly after becoming king in 1941, Cambodia’s beloved and now deceased ruler Norodom Sihanouk began to make amateur films. Soon after that, he sent a number of Cambodian students to France to study the art and craft of filmmaking. King Norodom Sihanouk had a love for filmmaking that is sustained to this day in the country of Cambodia. It’s evident in the diligence and dedication with which local crews muster to ensure every foreign production gets the most out of Cambodian locations.
Cambodia has a rich tapestry of locations that make it a superior place to film television, videos, or feature films. These locations include both rural and urban atmospheres as well as both modern and classic backdrops. The city of Phnom Penh has a skyline that is alive with high rises, skyscrapers, and rapid architectural development. Retaining much of its French colonial past, this city features boulevards, mansions, riverside walks, and historic shophouses.
Venturing outside of Phnom Penh, the country’s natural splendor provides a panorama of verdant hillside jungles, rice paddies, riverine life, and beachfront real estate. And Cambodia is also blessed with the largest freshwater lake in SE Asia, the great Tonle Sap, as well as one of the world’s most important archaeological sites. As the lenses turn on Cambodia’s scenery, the audience opens its eyes to the sheer beauty of what flickers across the screen, be it in a cinema or in the palm of the hand.
