The Economic Commission of Vancouver reports that in a typical year there are approximately 65 movies, 55 TV series, and additional pilots being filmed in the Greater Vancouver BC area. And this doesn’t count the hundreds of commercials that are shot throughout the Lower Mainland. Turn off Netflix for a moment and try watching cable television for an hour without catching sight of the Georgia Viaduct, Granville Street, or the Lions Gate Bridge. Then there’s the growing flurry of film activity occurring across the province, spilling over into Alberta and the rest of Western Canada as filmmakers capitalize on the unmatched geological aesthetics of this North American neck of the woods.
For the last two years, the film and television production industry spent an annual average of $3.6 billion in BC, solidifying Greater Vancouver’s position as the 3rd largest production centre on the continent.
If you’re reading this, then you already have a good idea how movie and film budgets are broken down. While the bulk of capital is spread out across cast, crew, development, editing, effects, equipment, and marketing; set decoration and prop acquisition is also of significance. Authentic set decoration and design are essential components to setting the tone of a movie or TV show, and are expected by today’s discerning audiences. But, finding the right collection of furniture and decor, all in one “shop”, can be quite a challenge. Thankfully, you’ve come to the right place. Loungeworks has one of the most extensive collections of movie, film, and theatre decor rentals in all of Western Canada.
