“Great crew members, the government is co-operative, there are good tax incentives… but more than anything, you can just get a lot of good work done.” — Ron Howard (Thirteen Lives)

There are many benefits to filming your next project in Queensland including ways to significantly reduce below-the-line costs.

Queensland crew rates and other production costs are competitive with international and Australian locations.

The Queensland Government, Screen Queensland and local councils are working to make Queensland an even more attractive production location through streamlining film approval processes and promoting the cultural and economic benefits of film and television production for the state.
