FOX STUDIOS AUSTRALIA & NEW SOUTH WALES CONTINUE TO LEAD THE WAY



Currently hosting Legendary Entertainment’s Pacific Rim: Uprising, Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Peter Rabbit and The Voice Australia and with recent productions including Sir Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant and Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge, Fox Studios Australia and New South Wales continue to lead the way in world-class film and television production.

Alien: Covenant, which filmed predominantly at Fox Studios Australia, utilised eight sound stages and support facilities including production offices, steel, plaster and construction workshops, costume craft shops and dye rooms and post-production facilities.

In addition to studio facilities, Peter Rabbit has also utilised a nearby supplementary 30-hectare / 75-acre backlot, to construct quaint sets as featured in Beatrix Potter’s classic children’s book set in the English countryside.

The versatility of what Fox Studios Australia and Sydney has to offer is also reflected in Unbroken, doubling as the Berlin Olympics and a Japanese war camp, to contemporary Manhattan in Truth, 1920’s Long Island and New York in The Great Gatsby, Canada, Tokyo and Nagasaki in The Wolverine and WWII Okinawa in Hacksaw Ridge.

With over 60% of Australia’s film and television production crew residing in New South Wales, Fox Studios Australia has unparalleled access to the county’s most accomplished screen practitioners, as evidenced by the list of accolades received by Hacksaw Ridge.

Filmed entirely at Fox Studios Australia and on location in New South Wales, the film has received six Academy Award nominations and been nominated for and won numerous AACTA, BAFTA, AFI, PGA and Critics Choice Awards across directing, acting, production design, costume design, cinematography, editing, sound mixing and sound design, continuing the trend from Mad Max: Fury Road, which also filmed at Fox Studios Australia, that similarly achieved critical acclaim throughout the 2016 awards season.
