Film production is booming worldwide, and the UAE is fast becoming a preferred ‘foreign’ filming location for both big Hollywood movies and smaller independent features. FStop is geared to deliver on both and specialises in locations across Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

From our first independent feature, ‘Dune Dreams’ (2018) to the largest productions ever shot in the UAE such as ‘Mission Impossible VI: Fallout’ (2018), we have the experience, capacity, flexibility, and insider know-how to help transform spaces into real places. Some of our other larger-scale productions include ‘War Machine (2017), Star Trek Beyond (2016), Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015), Mission Impossible IV: Ghost Protocol (2011), ‘The Kingdom’ (2007).

Our clients trust us to do more than provide access to multiple dramatically different location options. To ensure you focus on making great movies, we:

- Take care of all the legal permits and paperwork
- Supply savvy location and unit crews
- Protect the integrity of the physical environment without hindering your film project
- Manage film set security – equipment, facilities, cast and crew
- Design and build logistical solutions for you regardless of size and terrain
- Offer a purpose-built, fully-equipped fleet of trailers for artists, makeup, production as well as honey wagons
- Have our own rentals ‘supermarket’ at which you can shop a vast range of top consumables and equipment rentals
