Comweb built and managed Canada’s first Hollywood style studio complex, North Shore Studios in Vancouver. The original home of the smash television series hit, The X-Files, North Shore Studios played a significant role in the growth of film and television production in Canada.
Another cause for celebration was the announcement of the Jay Switzer Comweb/William F. White Int’l Indigenous Creator Scholarship as a tribute to the late Canadian media figure. Administered through the Canadian Film Centre, the $100,000 award will be distributed over the next 10 years, a fitting tribute to a beloved figure in the industry.
As in past years, Vilmos Zsigmond/William F. White Cinematography Scholarship was awarded to a cinematography student, this year’s winner was Michael Kashuba.
As always, William F. White International lead the charge in the Canadian industry, with Whites Camera, Whites Lighting & Grip, Whites LES and Whites Specialty Equipment (WSE) as prominent providers to popular movie and TV productions including notable offerings: SHAZAM, Skyscraper, Charmed, Stephen King’s IT, The X-Files, Handmaid’s Tale, Designated Survivor, Hold the Dark and The Shape of Water to name a few.
Innovation is always key, with the introduction of Dactylcam Pro, Camera Car (Type One) to Alpha Stabilized Remote Head to meet the demanding needs of worldwide TV & Movie productions.
William F. White International again, was at the forefront of studio space expansion, with commitments to the Northern Ontario Film Industry, Pinewood Toronto Studios, and multiple-service offerings to include purpose-renovated film studios.
A special thank you to the team at William F. White International for another spectacular event!
