SRI LANKA

"The Pearl of the Indian Ocean", Serendipity or Ceylon; from the earliest days of Sri Lankans history it has been touted as a treasure trove of beautiful landscapes and inspirational vistas.

As the late futurist Sir Arthur C. Clarke is quoted as saying of Sri Lanka, "And always it is the same, the slender palm trees leaning over the white sand, the warm sun sparkling on the waves as they break on the inshore reef. This alone is real; the rest is but a dream from which I shall presently awake."

To put it simply, beauty is in abundant supply throughout this precious Island, clients need only decide which amazing scenery to use for their shoot.
  • Filming conditions are generally favorable throughout the year.
  • The average temperatures in the lowlands range from 28ºC (82.4 ºF) to 31ºC (87.8ºF).
  • The cooler Central Highlands average temperature is 23ºC (62.6 - 73.4ºF).
  • Sri Lanka experiences a warm, tropical climate throughout the year, with the central highlands maintaining milder weather and seeing higher rainfall.
The annual monsoon rains occur during two main seasons:
  • From May to August the monsoon rains affect the Southern and Western coasts, as well as the Hill Country.
  • The North, East, and North-Central regions are impacted by the monsoons between October and January.
  • April and September are considered ideal months for Filming, when the whole island experiences an abundance of sunshine and fertile ground conditions, with only intermittent rains, if at all.
