About Filming in Oz
Australia enjoys one of the best film production infrastructures in the World. So much so that it is now known as the "Hollywood" of the Pacific. Everything from medium budget TVC's to mega-buget films such as Star Wars II and III, The Matrix (plus II and III) and Superman, MI 2 are shot in Australia.
Sydney and Melbourne locations and crews have become the first choice of Directors around the World.The technical and creative talent of Australia represent some of the world's most sought after personnel. As well as being both committed and talented, Australian crews are also cost effective, safety conscious and resourceful. Their expertise is widely acknowledged and many Directors have said how much they enjoy working in Australia because of the superiority and flexibility of our crews.
Australia's acting talent covers theatre, opera, dance, cabaret, comedy, film and television. In addition to the vast range of actors and models available there is a very broad cross section of nationalities of talent in Australia as we have an extremely ethnically diverse population.
Most people harbour a particular image of Australia, such as the Opera House or Ayres Rock, yet these famous icons don't do justice to the richness of Australia's natural treasures and its cultural diversity. Australia has so much to offer, from the drama of the outback to the spectacle of the Great Barrier Reef, World heritage listed areas in Tasmania to cosmopolitan Sydney and arguably the best beaches in the world. There are more than 500 national parks, incorporating rain forests, deserts, mountain ranges and coastal dunes. The sheer vastness of this once remote country is one of the things that make it so very unique.
