If you are a producer seeking to work with a recognized Albertan production company, a commercial camera person involved in film, TV, corporate, music and internet videos, or a tourist wanting assistance with local management or services to film or take photographs in the Canadian Badlands, we are it!
Starland Studios is a new full-service media production company now based in film-friendly Drumheller. We hold the first permit issued by the Town of Drumheller to conduct media business from our property and also have relationships already in place with local ranchers and special attractions to allow filming.
Known as the world’s Dinosaur capital and home of the famous Tyrell Museum, Drumheller is centrally located in the unique geography of the Canadian Badlands and is one of Canada’s top film locations.
Starland is only 1.5 hours driving time from the City of Calgary and its International Airport in Alberta. The property is adjacent to Highway#10 just five minutes east from downtown Drumheller and is situated on 6 treed acres along the Red Deer River with shore access and ample ‘Circus’ parking.
We have a fenced compound perimeter with special film enclosures approved by government for wildlife. Currently we house two Timber Wolves involved in documentary and film projects we are producing and may house other wildlife as necessary. We also provide domestic animals such as dogs, cats and horses.
We have an office, reception area and heated shop with a wide array of construction and mechanical tools as well as other buildings with landscaping equipment, specialized production gear, props and materials. For transportation we have 4WD work and crew trucks, travel and equipment trailers, boats and bikes.
We provide experienced crew, from Producer, Director, Writer, Production Manager and Location Scout to Camera Operator, Animal Wrangler, Stunt Coordinator and Safety, Fire, Military and other Experts. We also provide Post Production including video and audio editing, graphics, special FX and soundtracks.
Besides providing services to others we also produce our own projects in house and have the abilities to also provide consulting, research, development, funding, distribution and social media services for clients.
