from the industry

"After living in Toronto for over 15 years and having a great experience as a film location manager for a few of those, I can personally say that working in North Bay has been even better. I can honestly say it makes it so much easier knowing I have their support and they will work equally as hard to put all the pieces in place to create the kind of culture that should be a part of any film/tv series—mutual cooperation on all levels." Douglas Brisebois
Location Manager, Carter Season 1 and 2

"Within a one mile radius we were able to shoot at a rustic off-the-grid cabin, in a modern high-tech hospital, within an old growth forest, under a concrete underpass, on an ice-covered lake, on a snow-covered highway and shot "green screen" car driving process in a huge garage - and that was just our first three days."Derek Diorio
Producer/Director, Hard Rock Medical

"I’m a Stunt Coordinator, Screenwriter and Director. Last year, I was the stunt coordinator on Cardinal seasons 2 and 3, and I loved shooting in and around North Bay. I miss it when I’m not there. Just wanted to say I’ve got a crush on your city."Randy Butcher
