Calgary & The Prairies

  • The prairie provinces of Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan are known for their endless miles of flat, agricultural land including grasslands, farmland and wheat fields
  • Calgary, a thriving city, lies between these prairies and the Canadian rocky mountains to the west with a short drive to beautiful snow capped mountains or endless fields at anytime
  • The prairie region has a neutral climate, with milder winters and warm, pleasant summers. It is a mostly dry region with little precipitation at any time of year. It has the most sunny days per year of any large city in Canada
  • Both casting and talent are available in Calgary and talent can also easily travel from Vancouver, readily available via 1.5 hour flight
  • Crew & equipment needs can be found locally for small and medium scale productions, large scale needs can be supplemented from Vancouver
