I am not as big a fan of the movie/TV biz as some economic development types but I do see its potential – particularly as it relates to building a creative culture in the province. I see here that there is a company in Saint John with big plans:
“Long term plans? Become Atlantic Canada’s creative commercial production house, and produce at least three TV series per year.” Although they’re aiming high for the future, the bulk of their film work is done in New Brunswick.
We have a couple of animation studios, a couple of small production companies – it’s too bad we have the worst incentive program to produce here of just about any province in Canada.
