ANOTHER international production company has chosen Redlands, with the latest season of Amazon Prime show The Wilds filmed at several locations on North Stradbroke Island.
Scenes for the series were filmed at Deadman's Beach, Frenchman's Beach, South Gorge, Flinders Beach and on Southern Moreton Bay.
The production is predicted to have injected more than $800,000 into the island and Redlands economy, with 200 cast and crew staying on Straddie for filming blocks between April and August.
Redlands locations have featured in several television and Hollywood movies, including The Chronicles of Narnia, Pirates of the Caribbean, Aquaman, Love and Monsters and Young Rock.
The Wilds - co-produced by Amazon Studios and ABC Signature Studios - followsa group of teenage girls who find themselves marooned on an island, unaware they are part of an elaborate social experiment.
Brisbane-based company Hoodlum Entertainment was involved in production for season two.
Chief content officer Tracey Vieira said the company had great experiences filming in the Redlands and was pleased to return to film parts of The Wilds.
"During our time on location on the island we were able to capture incredible imagery of stunning locations that we can all be proud of when The Wilds season two premieres worldwide on Amazon Prime," she said.
"We love filming on Redlands Coast and hope to be back again soon to feature some of its other diverse locations."
Mayor Karen Williams said the cast and crew stayed at Straddie accommodation venues like Pandanus Palms Resort, Samarinda Jewel by the Sea, Stradbroke Island Beach Hotel and Allure Resort.
"It is anticipated the production provided a direct economic injection of more than $800,000 to the island and Redlands Coast economy," she said.
"Not only did this deliver economic and tourism activity, it's yet another exciting opportunity for our wonderful vistas to be showcased on screens around the world."
Cr Peter Mitchell said the production was great for the island economy, particularly in light of the pandemic.
"Redlands Coast has a global reputation as a natural choice for film and television, and it's easy to see why," he said.
"Our stunning locations and friendly communities are all within 35 minutes of Brisbane, half an hour from the Screen Queensland Studios at Hemmant and less than an hour from the Village Roadshow Studios at Helensvale.
"It's been fantastic to see yet another major production being filmed on this beautiful island and I thank our island community for hosting the production and sharing their backyard with the cast and crew."
The Wilds received support from the state government through Screen Queensland.
