Wilderness Films India Ltd. Mumbai film production companies

Wilderness Films was the first production company to use High Definition cameras in northern India, with the Sony HDW F900 HDCAM. The company now has over a hundred Canon and Fujinon Hi Def and SD lenses, dozens of HD cameras including HDW 730S, HDW 750P and HDW F900's, HDCAM Sony players and recorders, HD post production solutions, Panasonic Varicam DVC Pro HD and the ability to create an entire feature film on HD, from concept to master. More recently, it is pushing HDV and XDCAM HD as lower cost tape-less HD options.

Aside from HD, Wilderness offers a wide inventory of Digi Beta, XDCAM and HDV camera units and VTR's of virtually every format and standard in use worldwide.

The company is currently in the process of setting up India's first factual programming channel, and is also developing a global stock footage and stills sales portal that will utilise some 750,000 stills and a broadcast archive of 4000 hours-worth of material. Combined, this will make Wilderness Films the largest stock footage resource in the world for South Asia.

The company won the 'Incredible India Award' in 2006 and the 'National Tourism Award' in 2007 for the best tourism film made in India that year.
