Let's face it, New Zealand is filmmaking ecstasy. From big cities to quaint towns. Snow-capped mountains and pristine lakes to rugged, windswept coastlines. Makers of TV programmes, feature films and television commercials all find what they are looking for at our place.
International filmmakers and international advertising agencies love to shoot in New Zealand. Ridley Scott directing scenes for Alien Covenant and Tom Cruise shooting key scenes from Mission Impossible. Plus, scores of big-budget television commercials are shot here every year. Filmmakers keep coming to New Zealand to shoot their projects.
The following is a small sampler of the incredible choice and diversity that we possess here in New Zealand. Being a small nation of two main Islands we are surrounded by amazing coastlines and blessed with everything in-between. All a short drive or regional flight from each other.
