Celebrate 15 Years in the Film Business

As the end of 2014 draws near, Vancouver Film Studios celebrates 15 years in the business. A lot has happened during this decade and a half in the industry, mainly the construction of 12 purpose built, state-of-the-art sound stages. We provided comprehensive production equipment rentals, expert aviation services and specialized IT support. We created spaces for production offices, millwork and other key production needs. We became Canada’s first carbon neutral film and TV studio. Through it all, we assembled and kept a strong, dynamic team.

Meet Jason and Sacha McLean. Ernst & Young recently recognized our executive leadership with EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ awards for their achievements in innovation, financial performance and community service. Since 1999, both Jason and Sacha have helped our business develop in smart and sustainable ways. They built a complete studio facility with comprehensive services capable of serving the complex needs of world-class productions.

Meet Vice President of Marketing Kimberlee Alexander. Business In Vancouver’s Jen St. Denis recently profiled Kimberlee for this Life Lessons piece. Kimberlee has spent her entire career with Vancouver Film Studios. Here’s what she said to BIV about why she loves to work for Vancouver Film Studios: “I just loved the idea of working for a family-owned business that was operating in many different industries. … I was able to recognize I would have many more growth opportunities, chances to expand my career into anything that was there for me.”

What’s next for our business? We aim to continue providing an exceptional level of customer service to every production that calls our lot home. We want to find new ways to strengthen our suite of in-house production services, including film and TV equipment rentals, skillful aviation charters and IT support. Plus we’ll continue to be one of the greenest businesses in Canada.
