What the industry says

At NEOM, we are not reliant on CGI because it’s a real oasis. Surrounded by the most phenomonal mountain desert landscape I've ever seen.

Jeremy Bolt

Desert Warrior producer

It's important that we show the world what Saudi Arabia has to offer. It's massive. There are so many landscapes, so many things to show. In NEOM you can find almost any landscape you would find somewhere else. In one place you have all the countries we are usually going to.

Fred North

Stunt motion picture pilot

Our crew has just returned from a very successful filming trip to the amazing historical sites of Ancient Arabia. The NEOM Media Team’s Production Team provided exemplary professional support to our team every step of the way. They arranged fantastic access for us to sites that have been inaccessible to most for decades, arranged excellent suppliers for Drone and Underwater filming and they provided brilliant expert location support on the ground. It has been a very happy and productive production collaboration.

Ruth Sessions

Director of Production, SandStone Global Productions

The second we started our recce, we were blown away by the scenery and the variety in the landscape of NEOM. Bajdah caught our hearts and when we arrived there we knew immediately that this is location where need to film the first season of Million Dollar Land especially with the visual diversity it offered. In no time our production crews, technical teams and set building teams were on the ground preparing for the start of one of the biggest reality shows ever filmed in the region with the facilitation and support of the international production team in NEOM. What an amazing adventure and experience!!! Can’t wait to film again….”

Ziad Kebbi

CEO, Blue Engine Studios Executive Producer, Million Dollar Land

Working with NEOM during Rise of the Witches was a powerhouse of a partnership. Their ability to understand, visualise and supply what the production required was unparalleled, and the support on a daily basis superb. Rise of the Witches was the biggest MBC TV show that has shot entirely in the region, and without NEOM, we could never have undertaken that kind of commitment.

Ian Dray

Producer of Rise of the Witches

Bringing the biggest international feature film to the region has been a journey and having the support from NEOM in bringing our film (Desert Warrior) to life has been extremely valuable on many fronts. We went to battle together and came out as family, a family of warriors.
