What you'll do

Work with a freelance Director/ Producer/ Editor/ Acting Coach to make a creative short film from start to finish. The film is adapted to your chosen theme, resources and budget. We start with an online Zoom meeting to find our story, methods of production and structure the amount of time we want to dedicate to the film. (It can be an afternoon up to a month).

With video chats; messaging; file sharing and email, I'll workshop the story with you; advise you in prop and costume creations; I'll direct you how to take the best shots from cameras you already have or I will be an in-person camera operator (at a location in my city). I will edit or instruct you to edit the scenes using professional visual effects techniques, audio effects and industry standard software.

The finished films are for your personal use only. Great for Tik Tok, Youtube or just sharing with family and friends. If I edit it, a file you can download is sent to you.

www.filmnow.ca I'm a very active independent filmmaker and local actor who loves the creative process. You get to experience Vancouver as an "actor", I get to practice my art as a storyteller, director and special effects editor. I have experience as a workshop leader/ acting coach/ music video creator and director. I have worked with everyone from kids to international corporate business people. I love spy themes, sci-fi and fantasy movies and look forward to showing off my city and immersing you in the filmmaking process! Don't worry if you have no acting experience or if you do not speak English very well, this is all about having fun with movie magic! We will laugh and be filled with wonder as we create this most unique keepsake. I also do: https://www.airbnb.ca/experiences/347567 https://www.airbnb.ca/experiences/1502574

Where you'll be

"Guerrilla Style" film-making means we film in public trying not to bring too much attention to ourselves. I'll bring us to less busy places, perfect to sneak-capture our scenes. Spy Movie starts in Yaletown: we use the local marina; take the water taxi across False Creek to Olympic Village. Fantasy Adventure Movie: Hastings Park and Il Giardino Gardens is a little known magical place with odd statues, cobblestone bridges and a small lake.

We felt so lucky to be able to do this! Beingcreative all afternoon and seeing various locations was super fun. Don’t miss this! Eric goes beyond other hosts and we should know, we have been to quite a few experiences. He went beyond the call of duty, met with my daughter who was a bit unsure and had loads of props to help us get into the scene. When we were a bit fatigued we even had a tea to pick us all up. I think that anyone from anywhere in the world would find this a unique experience that other travellers would never do. And that is why YOU should do it!!

Eirc is very passionate about acting & film making. We had a small meet up the night before filming to make a plan. He included an actor to play the antagonist, also he communicated and organised with local companies so we could incorporate one of our other experiences into the storyline. It was fun and exciting.

This is not a typical tourist experience (and that's a very good thing!). Eric really worked with us to make the movie we wanted to make. Our family (my wife and I and our 2 normally-jaded teenage boys) had a great time! If you are looking to do something out-of-the-ordinary, this is it! I can't wait to see the final cut!

We had a fantastic time! Eric worked with our ideas and came up with something cohesive. We had a blast going around Vancouver shooting different scenes. Can't wait to see the final product!

An outstanding experience! Eric was a joy to work with, and my friend and I had the best time ever. Eric was incredibly friendly and fun, has such enthusiasm for his work. He went out of his way to make adjustments to the ‘plot’ as we went along and was great at coming up with ideas on the fly. This was also a neat way to see some parts of Vancouver that we likely would not have otherwise. It was a highlight of the trip, and we can’t wait to see the final product!
