It’s common to see Vancouver streets blocked off with hundreds of film crewmembers strategizing how to pull off the next cinematic shot. Vancouver is known as Hollywood North for good reason. With a mild climate, close proximity to LA, and numerous motion picture studios, the city is the third-largest film and TV production centre in North America. Every year, hundreds of films, TV shows, and documentaries are shot here.
Out of sight, thousands of 3D and visual effects artists work in dozens of studios, adding flash and polish to many of the biggest blockbusters. Studios like Industrial Light and Magic (Star Wars, Jurrasic World, The Irishman), Method (Avengers, Top Gun: Maverick, Ford V. Ferarri), and ZOIC (The Boys, Ozark, Game of Thrones)–all of whom have hired InFocus alumni–put the final touches on the films and TV series we all love.
