Curled up in the yawning arms of the Indian Ocean stands the Galle, a quaint walled city. Bronzed with centuries of tropical sun. Beyond the walled city, the new city spills in both the directions — fishermen selling fresh catch of the day by the shore, wind-swept beaches, Dutch-style white-washed villas and rivers teeming with wildlife. Whether for large-scale film productions, TV series, fiction, animation, documentaries, short films, ads or TV programmes, Galle is the perfect place for your audiovisual projects.

FILMING EXPERIENCE

TESTIMONIALS

Alfred Strobl

Line Producer of “Dreamhotel”

"(…) our producer is really enthusiastic about it '…this is going to be the best Dreamhotel we have produced so far!.' Especially the set decoration is really outstanding"

“…Sri Lanka turned out to be the most enjoyable leg of our shooting marathon. The wonderful rich period sets that Errol found, the immaculate planning and logistics by Ainsley and Gopi, the invaluable connections to government, navy and army Mr. Randeniya provided and last but not least the wonderful team that overcame any obstacle with us made shooting in Sri Lanka highly enjoyable experience.”

Berengar Pfahl

Producer & Director  “Emden Men”

”The executive supervision, production design consulting, set building and budget planning (…) gave all the filmmakers from Canada and the UK a secure base to work within, and helped us keep the film within the restricted time frame that we had available. (…) everyone is overwhelmed by the richness and beauty and authenticity of the locations. These are crucial locales and show complex historical worlds from many time periods…and they all work! Put simply “ the movie is great” (…) it is indeed a miracle and magical, just like the story we are telling. (…) It’s too early to know the fate of this film but with the magic of the “pearl of the Indian Ocean” anything is possible.”

David Hamilton

 Producer of “Midnight’s Children”
