Spotlight: Vancouver Island

10th Apr 2024

White sea foam, purple sea stars, surfboards, tree trunks the size of houses—these are just a few of the images that come to mind. The tree’s scaly bark tells stories of centuries past, while its charming local shops and broken clocks complement the slow pace of present life. When Vancouver Island filming come up in conversation, people may think of the likes of Twilight and Pamela Anderson… Little do they know, the Film Industry there is alive and beckoning the next creative humming. Location Base is proud to offer a variety of filming locations on the island to accommodate your next creative project. Here, we shine the light on some of them (click on headings to go to the full listing).
