Quality of Place

The making of Quality of Place

The vision

The vision for Quality of Place was conceptualized August 23, 2017 and can now be seen at the Sherwood Park Cineplex theatre before each show. The film captures Strathcona County through artistic snapshots that were filmed during a yearlong process.

Social Media Edits

Along with the full length video, we created several social media edits to be shared on Facebook and Instagram – which highlight unique aspects of Strathcona County.

Pre-Production

In early October of 2017 we put together the initial shot list. The shot list included scene numbers, locations, and camera motion – though, due to the scale of the project we included as much detail as possible, so that nothing was missed during the many months of filming throughout the year.

Production

We filmed 16 separate scenes over the course of 11 months. Planning and coordinating each scene was exciting, especially when it came to filming and capturing what was visualized in the pre-production process.

Production began on November 23, 2017 at Cafe Haven and ended on October 20th at 11pm in an undisclosed Farmers Field.
