Local support helps drive film and TV production on the Gold Coast

Sam Cleveland | February 21, 2019

The Gold Coast’s film production sector hits record volume as more TV and independent films choose to shoot here. Part 2 of a 2-part report.

The Gold Coast’s screen sector routinely hosts production of the most valuable film properties in the world: blockbusters such as Marvel’s Thor Ragnarok, Aquaman from DC and Warner Bros, Nickelodeon’s Dora the Explorer and Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean 5.

Shooting these mega-productions means building ambitious sets, herding hundreds of extras and sewing racks and racks of costumes.

“Stage 9 up at Village Roadshow Studios is now the largest individual sound stage in the southern hemisphere,” a screen sector insider told We Are Gold Coast, “so it’s only natural that these complex productions gravitate here.”
