Austria as a film location offers a complete technical infrastructure that corresponds to global standards. Professional equipment such as film and video cameras, lights, rails, dollies, cranes, motion control and sound equipment are also available for hire, as are all post-production services required. Trained and experienced staff are available for all divisions. Austria's creative minds have always kept pace with the rapid technical developments of recent years or, in some areas, have even been one step ahead of the rest of the world. Achievements such as the Moviecam, the camera cable car system CAMCAT® or the innovative Cine Reflect Lighting System by the award-winning Austrian cameraman and filmmaker Christian Berger are the best proof of Austria's technically highly developed infrastructure.
As one of the largest theater and cultural cities, Vienna offers enormous resources for equipment, costumes and props. Every style and every age is covered by the offer of large and small costume and props rental companies and the set designers, costume designers, interior and exterior props makers working in Austria.
