The cosmopolitan city of Montreal is Quebec’s largest city its main production center. Quebec province is carved by economic development, industrialization, and the extraction of natural resources, which have all shaped cities and landscapes in such a way that they offer extraordinary visual possibilities. Whether you’re looking for forests with endless trees, or huge open-pit mines, or hydroelectric dams in the background, we have them.

Another characteristic of Quebec is its history, which represents an intricate and fascinating mix of French and English roots to create a unique blend of European and American-inspired architecture: in the South of the province, Victorian or colonial-inspired villages, and in the North, developed by French colonists. Filmmakers are therefore presented with a plethora of scenery choices. Why not take advantage of what the province has to offer?

When To Shoot

Film productions in Quebec are mainly made between April and November. The Quebec climate is mild, with four very distinct seasons. Temperatures can vary between +35 degrees Celsius in the summer to -40 degrees in the winter. Due to Quebec’s large geographical spread, temperatures from North to South greatly vary. Our team has specialized equipment for cold weather, and is able to accompany you in the cold of winter.

  • All year long services – From +35 celcius to -40 we are ready

  • Weather protected equipment – Keep all gears protected

  • Get ready – Our crew is up to the task

However, good news for all those who are concerned by extremely low temperatures: our cold is actually very dry, making the Quebec temperatures, oddly enough, far more tolerable than the cold and humid environments in some countries in Europe.

With over 25 studios ranging from 1,000 square feet to over 110,000 square feet, we are more than able to accommodate your production. Movies, Documentary, Advertising, Motion Capture, Green Screen.
