Filming in Singapore

Singapore is a compact city state with increasing international production appeal. Its eclectic locations range from tropical island settings, bustling corporate and industrial settings, to colonial and Asian heritage.

The island has welcomed a number of high-profile action sequels including Hitman: Agent 47, the first Hollywood studio feature to shoot in the city. It was supported by the Singapore Media Development Authority – a selective 40% rebate which encourages features to work in the country.

2018's Crazy Rich Asians showcased the city's more exclusive and fashionable locations.  These included Merlion Park, the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, the Merlion statue, the Singapore ArtScience museum and the SkyPark and Gardens by the bay.

The city also appeals to sci-fi productions. HBO's Westworld chose to film in the city due to the way "nature entagles with modernity" according to co-creator Lisa Joy. The production shot in the Helix Bridge, a number of hotels, parks and attractions. Other high-profile shoots have included sci-fi blockbuster Independence Day: Resurgence which also shot a number of scenes at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel.

Infinite Studios is Singapore’s main filming facility, offering two sound stages and accompanying office space, equipment rooms and dressing areas. Infinite also runs additional production space on the nearby Indonesian island of Batam.

Singapore is a beautiful country; I am just amazed at how one small compact island is able to fit in so much! The lush greenery, the bustling shopping haven at Orchard Road and the diverse range of food and cuisine found at every turn, all left me with a deep and lasting impression.”
