New studio complex designed for 'build the world' productions opens in New Zealand

New Zealand is already a busy production hub has become a popular destination for large scale film and television projects with Lord of the Rings and Avatar sequels currently shooting in the country. X3 Studios are the most flexible turnkey studios in New Zealand and have been specifically designed for large scale ‘build the world’ productions.

X3 Studios comprises of four studios and is situated thirty minutes south of Auckland city centre. The studio is expecting the first production on site in coming months and are currently accepting enquiries.

The studio complex is situated only 30 minutes’ drive south of Auckland’s city centre. The complex comprises more than 126,200 square feet of clear span high-stud studio and flexible production space offering multiple configurations of up to four studios, including the X3 Mega Stage - the largest clear span mega stage in the Southern Hemisphere.

X3 Studios was developed by Xytech Studio Management Co, part of the Kiwi-owned technology company Xytech Group. Xytech’s owner, Stephen Pryor, says the new studio complex is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to the local screen sector: “New Zealand is internationally renowned as a production location - we have terrific screen production incentives that make us an attractive destination for international studios, not to mention some of the best crews and views in the world. However, as the country has become a more popular destination for large scale film and television projects, we’ve almost become a victim of our own success and the lack of local studio infrastructure has been a hindrance to increasing New Zealand’s capacity as a screen production location. Xytech is thrilled that our investment in X3 Studios will contribute the growing health of our local screen sector by attracting more of those big international productions, creating hundreds of local jobs and, in turn, giving a boost to the New Zealand economy.”
