Located at the heart of Southeast Asia with more than 7,000 stunning islands with lush tropical forests, pristine beaches, historical landmarks, deserts, mountains, underground rivers, and contemporary cityscapes that production shoots often require, the Philippines has got what it takes to become the next production and post production hub in Asia.
“Not only because we have very talented and creative professionals, but also because we have stateof- the-art equipment and highly trained technical people handling them,” said Jun Aves, Managing Director, Gung Ho Films Manila (GHFM). “We also have a rich and open culture that breeds a wide variety of talented performance artists, so it’s easy to cast from here.”
