Wellington's world-class screen industry

An award-winning screen industry, right at your finger tips.

When it comes to the screen industry, Wellington's infrastructure and people are world-class. When you choose to make your production here, whether it's big or small or something inbetween, you're only a phone call away from access to:

  • Academy Award-winning crew
  • purpose built TV and film studios
  • state-of-the-art post-production, VFX and mixing facilities
  • amazing talent to helm the cutting edge technology

The Wellington value chain

While our screen industry's hub is nestled on the Miramar peninsular, the wider ecosystem spreads right across the region. Alongside screen-friendly regional councils and the public, there's a broad range of businesses to support and enhance your production experience.

From big companies catering to SFX and high end post-production through to niche boutiques that can amplify your digital engagement, Wellington's end-to-end value chain extends far above and beyond the usual production process. And they’re all within a short drive from each other!

Talented workforce

Wellington’s creative and technical workforce is second to none. There are several thousand contractors working in the screen industry here, and crew networks are extensive.

You'll easily find crew with experience in principal photography, VFX, miniatures, model making, and countless other areas. And New Zealand's talent and crew capability are flexible - key heads of departments and crew will move to wherever they're needed.

Camera, grip and lighting crews – among the best in the world

The camera, grip and lighting crews in Wellington are considered to be some of the best and most innovative in the world.

They're consistently involved in some of the biggest and more technically challenging films ever made, inventing new technology and solutions, and training others to use it. All this serves to make Wellington an amazing technical melting pot.
