Trivia
Savage Justice (1967) (Sweet and the Bitter 1967) is considered the first feature shot in British Columbia, however during the 1920s and 30s British productions would use the area to film what was called "The Quota Quickie". British Columbia would double for the United Kingdom. (The Quota): A government enforced requirement for British cinemas to show a quota of British produced films for a duration of 10 years. The Act's supporters believed this would promote the emergence of a vertically-integrated film industry in which production, distribution and exhibition infrastructure were controlled by the same companies. The vertically-integrated American film industry of that era saw rapid growth in the years immediately following the end of the First World War. The idea, therefore, was to try and counter Hollywood's perceived economic and cultural dominance by promoting similar business practices among British studios, distributors and cinema chains. By creating an artificial market for British films, it was hoped the increased economic activity in the production sector would eventually lead to the growth of a self-sustaining industry. The quota was initially set at 7.5% for exhibitors, which was raised to 20% in 1935.

The beginning of television drama in British Columbia was a show called Tidewater Tramp (1959). A few years later Cariboo Country (1960) became the first program shot on-location followed by The Littlest Hobo (1963) - an adventure series which would be the first American-produced show to be filmed in the Province.

Quotes
Chow, James H.: When I got involved in the business during the 1960s you sat on the sideline for a long time until someone let you in the door. It was the proving ground. Nowadays it seems like there's a formula to get in and the kids just play it like a game.

Betty Thomas: It was exciting to be part of that because I felt I was part of a family - a family that was starting to build something. We were all traveling in fear and trepidation because we were never sure when the next job would come our way. Literally a year would go by and nothing.

Chris Carter: I was old enough to drive because I remember driving my girlfriend to see a sneak of American Graffiti in 1973 in Lakewood, California. And as we were leaving the showing I remember seeing who must have been George Lucas, Francis Coppola, Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz and all the people involved in the making of this amazing movie. And they were just standing there looking at us wondering what we thought, and if I knew then what I know now I would have stopped and had a conversation with those people. Because so much is riding on that event. I know that know. I didn't when I was 16. What a missed opportunity.
