Malaysia is seen as becoming the preferred destination for film production and post-production activities for many overseas production studios. This was highlighted in the involvement of Malaysian talents in the post-production of high budget Hollywood films and TV series.
The most anticipated TV Series in Disney+ Channel in 2019, The Mandalorian and the ending trilogy of the Star Wars franchise: The Rise of Skywalker (Episode IX), was outsourced to Base Digital Production Sdn Bhd (Base Media), in Kuala Lumpur, received the support of 30% Film in Malaysia Incentive (FIMI).
With the growing interest from international studios approaching and enquiring Malaysia-based Companies to produce high-quality standards of visual effects and animation, we see a positive and engaging impact on the creative industry here in Malaysia. All these were made possible by the constant support and engagement from The Ministry of Communications and Multimedia and FINAS.
