FILM AND DOCUMENTARY CREW

At Films.Solutions, every member of our film crew lives and breathes documentary & filmmaking. It’s more than a passion, it’s a way of life.

Every member of Canadian film and production crew deeply respects and honours the art of filmmaking. We are constantly striving to reach new levels of expertise in capturing the light, expressing an emotion or telling a compelling story, right from the first shot. That being said, we also have a very practical approach as we are mindful to use the right equipment and are aware of time sensitivity issues related to moviemaking.

Our Documentary film crew on location in the Yukon

Our film crew has worked together for so long that it has become second family, minus the sibling rivalry. Together, we have filmed, coast to coast, in the toughest of environments as far North as Nunavut and Yukon, as well as all the way down South to more tropical locations such as Mexico and Cuba.

We love getting out on the road for great location scouting and finding that ideal site for the next shot. We are careful about having the best and only the right film equipment for the job, and making sure every moving part in the production is in alignment with the film’s vision.

Years of experience have taught us that with a positive mindset, each challenge or problem is an opportunity to take things to the next level. We have master communicators, multi-lingual (we speak French, English and Spanish) and known for being friendly and efficient. We are extremely proud of what we have accomplished together as a team and we are eager to see what else is possible! 

Work shouldn’t feel like work, right?

If you enjoy the process of filmmaking just as much as you enjoy the wrap-up party and the red carpet events, we are made for each other.
