Finding competent people to help you on your productions can be a daunting task here on the Island. The draw to the big world of Motion Picture production on the mainland is enormous. We at Island Cinematics try to maintain a good list of excellent personnel to help populate productions from small to large. While the list is always changing we strive to keep it current.

In addition we have a team of our own experts that can help you with your immediate needs.

Ted Fanyeck

Ted has been in the film business for over 40 years and has dabbled in almost every aspect of production. The owner of Vancouver Island Production Services, he can be readily found on sets around the Island and is as comfortable behind a desk organizing productions and personnel as he is in the mud laying dolly track for a 60 foot crane shot.

He is a phenomenal rigger and can always be relied upon to bring together the elements necessary to make any shot work.
