When Tom Cruise swung from the Burj Khalifa for his blockbuster Mission Impossible we witnessed that UAE had peaked as a hotspot for Film Shooting. But that iconic scene set in Dubai was just a sign of things to come. Over the last two years UAE is a favored destination to shoot some high profile movies. A wide range of shooting locations combined with urbane infrastructure makes it a top-choice for most Directors. The list includes Star Wars VII, Fast and Furious 7, Dabangg, Happy New Year and Airlift.

Why UAE?

Wondering what makes filmmakers, ad makers and others rush to UAE?

Here’s what the desert country offers:

  • From mosques, plush malls, skyscrapers and fancy hotels to desert, beach, and racing tracks, UAE ‘s locales are a perfect backdrop for Film shooting.
  • If you need sunny weather, you can come here at any time of the year.
  • To support and promote creative production in the UAE, the UAE government has established a special zone. Abu Dhabi’s twofour54 and Dubai Media City are two such incentives to encourage filming here.

Why do you need Studio 52?

Why wait? Choose UAE as your next shoot destination. But getting the required shooting permission in UAE isn’t easy. The law requires you to hire a local production company, who will obtain the permits on your behalf. Wondering why this matters? Because that’s exactly where Studio 52 can help.
