The dynmaic and modern Singapore offers state-of-the-art production facilities, along with versatile backdrops that are perfect for filming.
Filming in Singapore
Singapore, the dynamic and modern city-state known for its unique blend of culture, architecture, and cuisine, is emerging as a top destination for filmmakers seeking an exciting and versatile backdrop for their productions.
Boasting a mix of old and new buildings, lush greenery, and iconic landmarks such as Marina Bay Sands and the Merlion statue, Singapore offers a wealth of visual and sensory experiences. Its rich cultural heritage, with historic districts like Chinatown and Little India, provide additional opportunities for filmmakers to capture the city-state’s vibrant energy.
But Singapore offers more than just stunning visuals. Its modern and efficient infrastructure, including world-class accommodation options and state-of-the-art production facilities, make filming a breeze. Infinite Studios, for example, offers a full suite of production services, including pre-production, production, and post-production services. The Film Commission of Singapore provides support and assistance to international filmmakers, including location scouting, permits, and production resources.
The city-state’s tropical rainforest climate, with temperatures ranging from 25°C to 31°C and high levels of humidity year-round, presents a challenge for filming. The best time to shoot in Singapore is during the dry season from February to April, but even then, there may be occasional showers. Careful planning and preparation are crucial for successful shoots, especially when considering the high levels of humidity that can be challenging for cast and crew during outdoor shoots.
