Queensland is an easy double for many parts of the world including California, Hawaii, Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Mexico, Vietnam, The Bahamas, the jungles of South America, rainforests of South East Asia, the European countryside, English streetscapes – and with built-up cityscapes, you can even double downtown San Fransisco like the producers of San Andreas did in Brisbane or Futuristic Tokyo as done is Pacific Rim Uprising.
“We were there for a long time, 7 months and I loved it. The movie is set in the Amazon Basin and also Southern California, and Queensland has both those looks amazingly.”James Bobbin, Director – Dora and the Lost City of Gold
“ABC International and myself decided that Queensland was the best state pretty much out of the gate. The list is sort of endless. The look of it, the people, the access, the weather, the facilities – I would 100% recommend Queensland as a destination to other filmmakers!”Popp Montgomery – Reef Break, ABC International
Laidback and fun Queensland offers productions crews a unique and welcoming environment to work in. Our crew’s can-do attitude, sense of humour and work ethic have seen us major productions and studios return to our state time and time again!
