We wrapped on “Flee The Light”, a mystical horror thriller, in North Bay on October 4th 2020. The city and people of North Bay were wonderful to work with and everything went so smooth that we are already in talks to return shortly with another project.
The natural beauty of the city with Lake Nipissing, the vast forests and hills made for stunning locations.
On the more human side, we discovered an excellent support network of location managers, grips, electrics, art department personnel, HMW personnel, PAs and more.
Thanks to everyone who participated in “Flee The Light” and I can't wait to come back to North Bay; a place that will always be in my heart."
