Lifetime movie being shot in Kelowna and West Kelowna

Movie shoot in Okanagan

UPDATE 2:32 p.m.

Okanagan Film Commissioner, Jon Summerland tells Castanet the Okanagan film business has so far survived COVID-19.

"There are four Lifetime movies being shot in the Okanagan right now and through July and August," says Summerland.
 
Summerland says an unnamed Hollywood film is also set to begin shooting in mid to late July and one of the reasons they can go ahead is because of the availability of Canadian crews.

"We've got skilled people here in B.C. and particularly in the Okanagan, that has allowed us to basically quarantine crews together to shoot these movies."

Summerland says every production in the Okanagan now has a Health and Safety Officer on set daily to ensure protocols are adhered to.

"We have a dedicated space where everyone has their temperature checked daily and we make sure everything is cleaned and that everyone gets individual hand sanitizers."

Until recently all of the shoots have been either on location at The Cove on the road or in an open space, "now that things have loosened up a bit we are starting to use different locations like the one on Doyle Ave the other day."


ORIGINAL 12:13 p.m.

If you have spotted movie cameras and trucks around the Okanagan this week, you're not alone.

This truck was set up on Doyle Ave. earlier this week and is part of a Lifetime movie shoot that is taking place mostly at the Cove Lakeside Resort.

Okanagan Film Commissioner, Jon Summerland says that he's been extremely busy navigating different shoots and working within B.C.'s health guidelines as outlined by Dr. Bonnie Henry.

Summerland says, the movie is called, “For Better or Worse."
