When considering shooting in an unfamiliar city, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. That’s where we come in. Our staff can connect you to local award-winning production companies, resources, and skilled crew that will make your production a success.
We know Ottawa well – really well. If you’re looking for filming locations for your feature film, MOW or TV series, send us your script and some information about you and the project and we’ll happily put together a look book of possible locations. The look book will provide you with an overview of the types of locations that Ottawa can offer based on your script, and if you like what you see, we’ll work with the OMDC to organize a dedicated scout for you. Please note that productions requesting paid scouts through the OMDC must meet certain criteria by providing information regarding the project’s financing, its budget, and the company’s previous productions. Our staff can also accompany crew on scouts – something foreign productions find helpful as they navigate a capital and multijurisdictional city like Ottawa. Contact our office to learn more about how we can bring your next project to Ottawa.
Already know where you want to shoot? Working closely with the City of Ottawa, our office can help you obtain all the required permissions and permits for filming on city-owned lands.
