Vancouver 1A few fantasy/fairytale productions have found a home in Vancouver, Canada, as the ABC hit show “Once Upon a Time” and its “Alice in Wonderland” spinoff “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” will both film in the same studio. The two shows’ executive producers, Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, report that Vancouver’s diverse city makes it ideal for film and TV production. Both programs are adventures that get a variety of enchanted forest looks, thanks to the B.C. landscape.

The new CW series “The Tomorrow People” is also filming in Vancouver. The show is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, who also shoots the CW series “Arrow”in town. Both productions share local fight choreographers and stunt coordinators as well as a casting department. “There’s a lot of stunt work,” Berlanti says. “It’s true choreography. They visualize everything and [preview] it with cameras and get cuts of how the fight will look with the stunt individuals. So we can comment on it much like we would [when] looking at storyboards.”
