Having been based in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo since 1997, we have built up a wealth of knowledge and experience in the area. Scubazoo are one of the few local companies approved by the Malaysian Government with a FINAS license. This means Scubazoo are entrusted to sponsor international production companies wanting to make programs in Malaysia. We’re not limited to Malaysia though and have managed shoots for productions in Indonesia, Philippines, Sri Lanka and Maldives. We have provided location filming services for productions of all sizes and budgets, from short news segments to IMAX films. Given our name you may be surprised to find that we often manage shoots on land! Here is a selected list of TV and film productions we have fixed in Malaysia:

Here’s what some of our clients had to say about us:

Scubazoo are a pleasure to make films with – creative, cooperative, cost effective –  they know their territory exceedingly well and deliver what they promise – JP Davidson, DirectorLast Chance to See – BBC Wales

Another great experience with Scubazoo as location fixers and underwater camera. A sensitive subject was dealt with with huge patience and incredible support for the British crew. The logistics were well organised, the boat drivers fantastic and the underwater sequences a massive achievement – Ben Wallis, Director – Edge of Existence – Tigress

Scubazoo managed a complex shoot with many different aspects in a variety of difficult locations ranging from Caves to Jungles, some of which where potentially hazardous. They managed each task professionally and were flexible to meet the changing needs of the production at short notice. They were able to source experts in various fields who, in each case, were dependable and a joy to work with” – James Brickell, Director – Deadly60 – BBC Natural History Unit
