Canadian Film Locations
Finding the ideal location for films and documentaries in Canada is a passion project for us. We are always on the lookout for amazing locations and we’re currently working on building a database of all the locations we’ve vetted. Although we have locations from the East to the West, we specialize in locations based in Quebec and outside of Montreal.
Tell us about your idea and vision for the storyline. We’ll create a short list of ideal locations that are adapted to your budget. We can then help plan for transportation with our own vehicles or, if need be, we’ll book a fleet through our preferred partners.
Our film crew has worked together for a long time. 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.
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!
For many years, members of our artistic department have been working in the Canadian film and television community. With artists in set design, set up or accessory management, every visual aspect is taken into account and managed throughout the production. Our design of the sets and accessories begins with the reception of the scenario with an analysis of each scene, as well as discussions with the director so that the credibility of each scene is optimal.
Whether artistic direction or accessory management on the set, we have the resources to carry out your production.
