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. The city of North Bay is small enough that everything's close by but big enough to have all the comforts and amenities needed to service a production. I look forward to coming back for future seasons of Hard Rock Medical.

“I have to say that once I landed in North Bay, the team was very much ready and willing to meet all of the production’s needs and they came through in a very big way. Whether it was permits, bookings, contracts or processing a road closure (Main Street) on days’ notice, what we asked for would not have been completed without their help. Quite remarkable I must say. I will never forget the experience, neither will the Producers of this project. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and I hope to see you all in the near future. I am sure the writer, Giles Blunt, will be proud once he sees what was accomplished in the City of North Bay.”

“ Upon wrapping our first feature film (Hellmington) we would like to thank the City of North Bay for such an amazing experience. We will never forget your support and can't wait to come back for our next one!”

"Working with the Economic Development Department these past few months has been exceptional. 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. The staff’s professionalism and willingness to make it work is extraordinary. It is very difficult to try and manage a film’s Location Department with all the variables and ever changing requests. 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—mutual cooperation on all levels."
Douglas Brisebois, Location Manager
"We at Pair of Ducks Productions, are pleased that we can draw on the actors of North Star Talent for our films. Working with industry professionals from Northern Ontario not only helps foster northern talent but also provides local cast and crew with training in all areas of film production."
