Top 10 Locations in B.C. Where Hollywood Crews Love to Make Their Movies
July 15, 2014
Creatives Services B.C. production manager Julie Bernard explains why the Vancouver Art Gallery makes for a great location for film and television production.

Location manager Catou Kearney’s scouts scoured B.C. for three months to find the right forest for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Kearney, shooting location manager for the sci-fi blockbuster that opened Friday, knew exactly what she needed.

The forests for the latest Apes movie had to look older and wilder than the Burnaby woods used in the movie’s predecessor, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which was shot in B.C. in 2011. The new movie is set 10 years later than the first film.
