Singapore: Infinite Studios Draws More Foreign Shoots

Ever since opening two more soundstages totaling 28,000 square feet, Singapore’s Infinite Studios has been hard at work feeding the beast with a multitude of international co-productions. The studio recently announced a mixed bag of film and television projects that will make full use of Infinite’s facilities both in Singapore and nearby Batam.

The slate, heavy on genre product, includes the Olga Kurylenko starrer “Android,” a sci-fi drama repped by Fortitude Intl. Also in the works is “Headshot,” an Indonesian feature starring “The Raid’s” Iko Uwais; and “Halfworlds,” Infinite’s third collaboration with HBO Asia after 2012’s “Serangoon Road” miniseries and TV movie “Dead Mine.”

Infinite’s slate adds to an eventful 2015 for Singapore’s film industry. The island played host to two indie productions this year, both with U.S. components: sci-fi film “Equals,” starring Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult, and action thriller “Hitman: Agent 47,” pictured, starring Zachary Quinto and Rupert Friend making full use of the country’s award-winning architecture.

Reports that “Hitman: Agent 47” benefitted from financial support through the Media Development Authority’s Production Assistance scheme however, drew some grumbling from local producers, especially after star Quinto’s less-than-effusive comments on the city state’s “lack of depth.”

While the production provided over 200 jobs for local crew, director Aleksander Bach bemoaned the lack of support services experienced in large-scale filmmaking, particularly in setting up big exterior action sequences, telling a local newspaper, “They were very helpful, but they just don’t know how to do it, so it took so much more time and it was challenging,”
