Malaysia | Asian Film Location Services (Pvt) Ltd

Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo

Sarawak, the Malaysian state on the island of Borneo lies 2 degrees just north of the equator,thus enjoying tropical sunshine and fine weather the year round. It's free from all monsoons, earthquakes and natural phenomenon as it lies outside the ring of fire. Historically known for the 100-year reign of the English 'White Rajahs' - the Brooke family,whose adventures inspired both Rudyard Kipling and Joseph Conrad as well as Somerset Maugham - its multiracial make-up comprises Dayak natives, Malays, Chinese and Indians in a cosmopolitan rainbow of faces and multiple religious beliefs.

The beauty, the still pristine jungles, beaches, mountains, caves and colourful habitats of native longhouses, Chinese bazaars and Malay kampongs together with the different faces and exotically unique highlands, lowlands and underwater locations attract the viewer by its variety and accessibility. Wild flora and fauna abound, from the orang-utan (wildman of the jungle) to crocodiles to pythons and rare birds, vegetation, and the world's largest flower the rafflesia. Surrounded by golden beaches with blue waters and going into meandering slow rivers and upland clear water streams and waterfalls, up to the largest cave system in the world the Mulu caves and one of Asia's highest mountains, we have it all.

Chandran Rutnam - The man who brought Hollywood to Sarawak!

Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia

At this year's Asean International Film Festival (Aiffa 2019) held in Kuching last week, Chandran Rutnam, of Asian Film Location Services, was honored for his many contributions to the Malaysian and Sarawak film industry throughout the years - a period spanning over 35 years of film and television. Chandran Rutnam has also led the Malaysian delegation to the Cannes Film Festival.

Sri Lanka | Asian Film Location Services (Pvt) Ltd

Sri Lanka has seduced travellers for centuries. Marco Polo described it as the finest island of its size in the world, while successive waves of traders and adventurers flocked to its exotic shores, attracted by reports of rare spices, precious stones and magnificent elephants. Poised just above the Equator amid the balmy waters of the Indian Ocean, the island's legendary reputation for natural beauty has inspired an almost magical regard even in those who have never visited the place.

Sri Lanka packs an extraordinary variety of exotic film locations within its modest physical dimensions, and few islands of comparable size can boast a natural environment of such beauty and diversity. Lapped by the Indian Ocean, the coast is fringed with idyllic - and refreshingly undeveloped - beaches, while the interior boasts a compelling variety of landscapes ranging from wildlife-rich lowland jungles, home to extensive populations of elephants, leopards and rare endemic bird species, to the misty heights of the hill country, swathed in immaculately manicured tea plantations.


"Over the last decade, Chandran Rutnam, single-handedly brought the film business to Sri Lanka and Malaysia. Today, when foreign producers consider shooting in Asia,
Rutnam is the first person they call."
- The Magazine for Film & Video Production
