An interesting document recording early filmmaking in British Columbia. The story is told by pioneer film workers who began their careers in the 1950s/60s, and it progresses until we see what the film industry is like in 2003. A worthwhile journey to witness how the business has changed over the decades. Original B/W footage of Oliver Reed and Rita Tushingham filming The Trap (1966) on Bowen Island. Written by
The beginning of television drama in British Columbia was a show called Tidewater Tramp. A few years later Cariboo Country became the first program shot on-location followed by The Littlest Hobo - an adventure series which would be the first American-produced show to be filmed in the Province.

Chow, James H.:
When I got involved in the business during the 1960s you sat on the sideline for a long time until someone let you in the door. It was the proving ground. Nowadays it seems like there's a formula to get in and the kids just play it like a game.

I bought this film to check out other movie making communities, see what's happening abroad... What a load of drivel! I mean, this film is like someone's wishful dream about the business. The filmmaker must be in his own little world if he thinks the industry of show biz is 'happy' and everyone walks around with integrity and good will. There is no reason for anyone to watch this film, it's false and misleading. It makes no sense, and bleeds on and on about people's love for the business... I have no idea how films like this get made, Who finances this stuff?
I'd like to see what would happen to someone like this in Hollywood... Now that would be a great movie!
