We are located centrally on Vancouver Island near Parksville.
The surrounding township is called Oceanside.
Directly off the main Island Hwy we are easy to find and easy to get to.
The local Qualicum airport is under 15 minutes away.
The Nanaimo ferry and Float plane docks to Vancouver
are only 30 minutes away on our picturesque Island Highway.
The Courtney Airport is less than an hour away.
The West Coast of the Island is a beautiful drive and only 2 1/2 hrs away.
Victoria, our provincial Capital, can be reached within 2 1/2 hrs as well.
We are grateful that so many have come forward offering their services, however we are not in charge of hiring for the shows that rent our space.
For those interested in working on shows that end up here, we recommend getting in touch with the fantastic folks at InFilm,
they have a database of all the available personnel on the Island and make sure all productions coming to the Island have access.
We also recommend getting in touch with your local union affiliations pertinent to the area you are wanting to get involved with.
Here are some links to assist the hunt!
There is a sense you get when you walk into a truly quiet room.
It’s not so much what you do or don’t hear, although that’s part of it, it’s more of a feeling.
Yes, you can feel it! It’s what happens when you walk into a truly anechoic acoustic environment.
This is what I experienced when I toured the stages at the Vancouver Island Film Studio today.
In my career as a sound professional that has spanned years in the Film and Music industries,
I’ve had extensive experience working in both the best and worst sound situations.
I have recorded dialogue on dozens of movies and over 300 episodes of television.
It is my great pleasure to give my endorsement to the Vancouver Island Film Studios.
The attention they have given to the quality of the sound treatment on their stages is first class.
