Welcome from the Film Commission
QUICK FACTS, CONTENTS & INDEX
Welcome to the Thompson-Nicola Regional District, just a 3-hour drive from Vancouver, British Columbia As Chair of the Thompson-Nicola Film Commission and Mayor of Ashcroft, I’ve worked directly with many film and television productions, and I have enjoyed every one. And I’m told the cast and crews have enjoyed working with us too. Major feature productions, such as An Unfinished Life, Firewall, Shooter and The Pledge, deposited excitement and goodwill into our region, and exhibited the world of looks the Thompson-Nicola region can be. Our deserts, box canyons with clay hoodoos, rolling grasslands and western movie set Wildhorse Town were well suited for westerns such as Chair, Thompson-Nicola the Canadian-German co-production Miss Texas, By Dawn’s Early Light, Film Commission; The Grey Fox, Gunfighter’s Moon and The Gift of Giving. Our foothills Mayor of Ashcroft were Afghanistan for Afghan Knights and Traffic: The Mini-series, India & Pakistan for Partition, Africa for Shooter and the Baja Peninsula for The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. We even doubled northern Canada’s tundra for The Snow Walker. Andy Anderson We’ve been blown-up and shot at as you’ll witness in Firewall, filmed around Kamloops, and The Wicker Man and the pilot for Superman’s Smallville in Merritt, but we’re still standing and hoping for more. We’ve had aliens visit from Battlestar Galactica, a lady truck driver depict her story in Lady is a Teamster: The Diana Kilmury Story at our famous Highland Valley Copper Mine in Logan Lake, and we mingled with the folks from Hard Core Logo. We were especially honoured to have the Academy Award nominated director, Atom Egoyan, direct The Sweet Hereafter in Ashcroft, Merritt and Spences Bridge, and create a powerful story amongst our pristine snowy terrain and picturesque roads. However, it was our cold and dreary looks coupled with our snowy terrain that enticed Sean Penn to film The Pledge in Lytton & Merritt areas. The BC Film Commission boasts that British Columbia is “A World of Looks.” Well, the Thompson-Nicola Region boasts a world looks, too, except ours are “All in an Hour Drive.” We invite you to film in our region. We guarantee your project will get our undivided attention and support because we appreciate your business.

CLIMATE
Logan Lake sits at an elevation that results in relatively cool temperatures and a short growing season. While surrounding mountains receive large amounts of snowfall, Logan Lake is sheltered and receives only a fraction of the snow that falls in the area. The weather is ideally suited for cross-country skiing and snow-mobiling in the winter and fishing year ’round makes this season a little gentler.

TEMPERATURE
(°F-32) x 5/9 = °C 1 degree Celsius (1°C) = 1/100 of the difference between the boiling and freezing points of pure water at sea level. 0°C is freezing point; 100°C is boiling point. HINT: To convert °F to °C (Multiply degrees x 2) + 30 Example: 20 Celsius x 2 + 30 = 70° Fahrenheit In metric, volume and weight and size are inter-related: 1 litre water weighs 1 kilogram and would fill a 10 centimetre cube. Similarly, 1 ml water weighs 1 g and equals 1 cm3 (cubic centimetre).

DRIVING SPEED
50 km/h is the speed limit on most urban streets. This equates to 30 mph. 80 or 90 km/h is the speed limit on most rural highways. These limits equate to 50 and 55 mph respectively. 100 or 110 km/h is the speed limit on most rural controlled access highways. These limits equate to 65 and 70 mph respectively.

REGIONAL TAX CREDIT 6% Labour Rebate for “Service” Productions
Feature Films & TV Series – Service Production Tax Credits There is a Regional Tax Credit of 6% on labour for a TV series or mini-series, and feature film productions that qualify as a “Service Production.” Once the production company acquires an Accreditation Certificate from British Columbia Film, then, when the production company files corporate taxes, the Canada Revenue Agency will refund the credited amount. Tax credits can be combined. The Regional Tax Credit of 6% can be added onto the Production Services Tax Credit of 18% (based on British Columbian labour) and the Canadian Film or Video Production Services Tax Credit of 16% (based on Canadian labour) for a total of 40% in tax credits. Also, the Digital Animation or Visual Effects Tax Credit (D.A.V.E.) of 15% can be added regardless if editing in the regions or in Vancouver, and regardless if production is filmed in BC or Canada.

Criteria – TV Series or Mini-Series
