Film Industry Jobs coming soon to Malaga with Major Studio Development

Home Fire Film Studio Render by Hassell Studio.

Employment opportunities within the creative industries are set to receive a major boost, as Western Australia’s first film studio, located by Bennett Quarter, is now under construction. Premier Roger Cook says the facility will be ready by 2026, and that the state expects it to attract film professionals from interstate and overseas.

Known as Home Fire, the 16-hectare studio site will be located near the Malaga Metronet station precinct at the southern end of Whiteman Park, right by Bennett Quarter. It is set to be a major drawcard for A-grade talent and production companies around the world, and will feature four sound stages, production offices, an art department, wardrobe, workshops, a backlot, parking and set storage.

The $233.5 million development by the Adrian Fini and Ben Lisle-backed Home Fire Creative Industries, was chosen ahead of Fremantle. Marketing of the new facility is expected to begin ahead of opening, scheduled for early 2025, in a bid to grow a work pipeline ahead of its opening. Around 600 jobs direct and indirect will be created during construction, according to government figures.

Culture and Arts Minister David Templeman said to Business News, that the works will “generate significant employment, plus other benefits from attracting more people into WA for accommodation providers, hospitality and transport.” Jobs in areas of cinematography, production, sound design, costume design and makeup will bring a new sense of vibrancy to the City of Swan and nearby areas like Bennett Quarter and Whiteman Park.
