Location & Scouting

Crosby Marine's familiarity with BC waterways has allowed us to master the art of filming both above and below the water in this province. Take advantage of our experience in these waters to give your production an advantage in location scouting, planning and navigation.

Location Scouting

Many years of intensive experience in British Columbia means that we can seek out the perfect location for your shooting needs. We will not only help you locate the perfect environment but will also provide accurate tide charts, local knowledge of marine weather patterns and we will advise of the appropriate permits needed for the scenes being filmed.

We are fully familiar with scenic and accessible locations in the region that are popular with film productions. We also have wide expertise with locations that are not so easy to access, but have equally beautiful scenery. We can provide production planners with photos of various locations that may be suitable for a specific shoot. We also have crew members able to scout any location, no matter the distance or difficulty.

Charts & Waterways

We can provide your production with both navigational and tide charts in any format. With navigation charts, we will be able to determine what type of background will be in each shot, and where the location will be in relation to shipping channels and other hazards. The aim is to help position film crews at the optimum location, taking into account all possible variables.

Crosby Marine also provides tidal charts detailing tide changes each half hour, FOR YOUR SPECIFIC FILMING LOCATION. Productions usually find these  charts very informative and attach them to call sheets. Using the very latest in digital mapping systems we are able to provide only the most current chart information available, ensuring that there will be no navigational surprises during any situation.
