Filming Locations in Cambodia
Cambodia is a top tropical and Asiatic filmmaking destination. This is primarily due to a handful of reasons and include logistical considerations like ease of permitting and economic pricing. More reasons worth mention include Cambodia’s undiscovered filming locations and especially the vast temple structures of Angkor Wat.
Trip Advisor’s Traveler’s Choice Awards ranked Angkor Wat the world’s top tourist destination twice in the last five years. This is because visitors are met with jaw-dropping architectural and artistic marvels as far as the eye can see. Documentaries often shoot in Angkor Wat, though it can serve as a rich historical backdrop for narrative films as well. Local fixers on staff at Wind Up Films can ensure you obtain the proper permit to bring your gear through the gates and capture the perfect footage.
In the city of Phnom Penh, filmmakers can find both history and modernity juxtaposed in a feverish atmosphere that is surreal even by Southeast Asian standards. The camera easily lingers on scenes of east meeting west and old meeting new. The city is aloft with dozens of neon walled skyscrapers and a skyline that morphs almost as fast as you can set up a tripod. Further south is Cambodia’s beachfront real estate. The busy, gambling beach city of Sihanoukville has casinos that jut almost up to the tide line. No matter what the location, Cambodia has an abundance of breathtaking sites and lush landscapes for any film project.
Production Crew and Equipment in Cambodia
From pre-production to post, local crews deliver. Cambodian production crews have been working hard over the past few years accruing experience with a variety of formats and film genres. These professionals include directors, line producers, gaffers and sound technicians. Not only that, but most speak English at or near fluency, with secondary foreign languages including French and Mandarin Chinese.
Visiting foreign productions can hire an entire crew locally if necessary, or fill in whatever support they may need. Whether you want to hire an AD or lead grip, Cambodian crews have experience working to cater to your needs. As a result, Hollywood is starting to pay attention to the Cambodian film industry, and this is also why French productions continually stream through for principal photography.
Okay, now that you have your crew roster filled out and ready for action, it’s important to make sure you can access the best equipment on the market. Again, Cambodia comes through in this regard. Most equipment houses are located in Phnom Penh, with a high availability of major brands such as ARRI, Sony, Red and much more. Whether you need the latest videography gear or a DJI drone to soar over Angkor Wat, it’s all here and ready to rock!
