Scouting for a great period look?
English castles. Rolling vineyards. Crashing surf. European street scenes. From Central Park to the Oregon coast, the French Quarter to the Napa Valley, you’ll discover an atlas of looks that are cost-effective and easy to shoot.
Southern Vancouver Island offers a diverse range of historic and modern locations.
Contact us and we will create a location package from an extensive online location library for you.
See the step-by-step guide for what to expect when productions film on location in B.C., from Scouting to Wrap.
We offer Production and Location Services free of charge
Using the photo library as a base resource, the Commission provides complete script breakdown services for features, MOWs, series and pilots. Photo files are sent using ReelScout to the producers to determine if the Capital Regional District is the appropriate place to film the production.
Scouting and Surveys
Based on production and script requirements, the Vancouver Island South Film and Media Commission will scout and photograph specific locations that may not be on file in the Commission’s library. The Commission may provide location scouts to accompany producers and directors around Greater Victoria in search of suitable locations.
The library is continually being updated and expanded; it consists of key images from all over the Capital Regional District used in script breakdowns, commercial requests and ongoing production and location support. It is used internally by Commission staff and contractors, and externally by producers, location managers and other industry personnel. Click here to view our public photo library. If you would like to view our complete photo library, including private residences, you may make an appointment with us at our office during our business hours.
Producers and Location Managers use the Production/Location Services Department for production research and information, location expertise, and assistance with other support and technical services. Staff aid with contacting appropriate agencies regarding city filming permits, as well as information on trade unions, guilds, labour rates, studio facilities, post-production facilities and suppliers.
