Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) July 17, 2009
Sydney Metro Airports Bankstown and Camden have unveiled a filming studio to show the scope and endless possibilities of the Airports as filming locations from anywhere in the world to production teams.
"We have developed Sydney Metro Airport Studios to showcase the vast capabilities of the Airports to location managers, production teams, event management companies and directors. The Studios website - http://www.sydneymetroairportsstudios.com enables location managers to view the capabilities of both Bankstown and Camden Airports from their desktop," said Mr Kim Ellis, Chief Executive, Sydney Metro Airports.
"We have developed the Studios website with information about the Airports capabilities and site specific details, complemented it with extensive photography so any location manager can finalise their initial brief from the convenience of their desktop. The website highlights the wide array of filming landscapes and associated infrastructure at both Airports, including aviation related to non-aviation features.
"The website also showcases the types of aircraft available at Airport - from helicopters, training aircraft through to high-end jets and heritage aircraft such as DC-3 and Tigermoths to name but a few.
"Sydney Metro Airports have enjoyed a long and productive association with the local and international film, TV, fashion, entertainment and event management industries, offering a range of aviation and non-aviation settings. We hope the Studios website will be the first productive step in a positive filming experience at Bankstown or Camden Airports.
"The Airports have a strong track record of being reliable, responsive and flexible in delivering productive filming experiences. Recently the Airports have hosted notable productions such as the TV dramas All Saints and Underbelly Series 2, and the wildly popular BBC Series, Top Gear, as well as a product launch for VW, fashion shoots and several TV commercials.
"We invite all production companies, location managers and event managers to take a virtual tour of our Sydney Metro Airport Studios for their next filming project," concluded Mr Ellis.
