The producers of European Survivor has once again chosen Langkawi as the filming location for the reality competition television show this year after its successful venture there last season.

Local production company Landmark Films has also been chosen to handle the filming of the RM20mil show from early April to mid-May.

Landmark films executive producer Wan Suhaimi Mat said Langkawi was selected for its strategic location and its natural beauty, in addition to the logistical facilities available as well as cooperation from local government agencies and departments.

"Survivor's filming locations only involve remote natural locations far from the public. This means the filming does not involve tourist hotspots such as Pulau Beras Basah and Pulau Dayang Bunting

"In addition, it has the cooperation of the federal government including the Communications and Digital Ministry’s Central Agency for Application of filming and Performance by Foreign Artistes (Puspal) for the approval of filming activities, while Tourism Malaysia also assists production companies in bridging cooperation and facilities, especially with industry players," he said in a statement here today.

Wan Suhaimi said some 300 local crew members will be involved in the filming this time, giving them an opportunity for exposure to international standard skills and work patterns in the field of set carpentry and other fields at the filming location.

He said the show will also be able to boost Langkawi’s image and its attractions and promote the resort island, especially to the European community.

"The Survivor series will be shown in European countries with an air time of 9,800 minutes during prime time and this provides big exposure for Malaysia, especially Langkawi, in the eyes of the world,” he said. – Bernama
