The Okanagan Film Commission is looking for shooting locations, and that could mean a house or property like yours.

Film and television production continues to expand in British Columbia and the Okanagan Film Commission is searching for locations suitable for productions wishing to shoot in the region.

Film commission regional locations officer Gord Wylie says they are looking for two large houses, side by side, for a reality television series shooting in the Okanagan later in the year. The houses can be located anywhere in the valley.

If you’re a homeowner with a neighbour who is interested in renting out your residences for a reality television series, contact Wylie by email at gwyliephoto@gamail.com.

"We have a slate of productions that are already booked bringing significant production activity to the Okanagan this year and we have several more scouting our area to potentially shoot here, so we are always looking to expand our library with great locations that are available to showcase to producers,” Okanagan film commissioner Jon Summerland said in a media release issued yesterday, Jan. 28.

A call is also out for interesting locations, farms, vineyards and buildings. If you are interested in renting out your property for film and television productions, contact the film commission to have it listed.
