The Philippines Filming Locations
Metropolitan Manila is a powerhouse of a city. This hub is bustling with its infamous traffic and a unique Asian landscape set against the glittering South China Sea. All of the major production companies and equipment rental warehouses are located here. A number of sound stages are also on hand here, as well as some of Asia’s top post-production suites.
Cebu is a tropical paradise and is situated central to the Philippine island cluster. Home to one of Asia’s largest film studios, Big Foot Studios, it is a great option for on-location setups or access to state of the art sound stages. Philippine locations will require permits and licenses to shoot in, which is why Wind Up Films will ensure everything is in order. We can speed up all the necessary paperwork, including proper visas for visiting crew members. Furthermore, our location scouts are the best in the business. These local professionals can help you achieve an on-screen look that is unlike anything audiences have ever seen before.
Beyond Manila and Cebu, the Philippines offer some of the world’s most breathtaking beaches, dive sites, mountains, and valleys. These locations include beaches that regularly top lists of the world’s most beautiful, among them White Beach on Borocay Island and Long Beach on lovely Palawan.
For a cooler climate with expansive mountain views, there are the historic colonial ‘hill stations’ of Baguio and the pinnacle ridges of Mount Batulao. These high elevation destinations are all within convenient reach of Manila, too. This can boost production efficiency and help your project adhere to budget.
