Creative Pathways Website Launch – Careers in BC’s Motion Picture Industry

New Website Connecting Students to Jobs in BC’s Motion Picture Industry


Choosing to work in B.C.’s motion picture industry means becoming part of one of the largest and most sophisticated centres for production in the world.

Many things combine to make B.C.’s industry as successful as it is – from its skilled people (often referred to as talent) and variety of location “looks”, to its specialized production spaces and services.

Beyond the creative entrepreneurs (above-the-line), professional craftspeople and technicians (below-the-line), and creative techs (those in animation, visual effects and post production) B.C.’s industry works together with partners in government, communities, and businesses in other sectors to optimize the province as a production environment while also taking care to improve environmental sustainability and maintain great relationships with the people and environments where motion picture activities take place.
