I'm part of Homegrown Productions, a company from Ryerson University who are filming a 22 minute pilot for our fourth year major production. It's based on the famous Boyd gang that robbed banks in Toronto after world war two. It's a great, exciting story but the problem is it that it is a period piece, which makes finding locations difficult (1948-1951). We're currently looking for locations for shooting. What we really need is an old bank, that is shutting down or closed where we can shoot. Are there any closed banks in Toronto that are older (example made before 1950). ANYWHERE in toronto or nearby in towns like Guelph are amazing as well. Any leads on a bank would be great. Or buildings that could look like an old bank like a closed railway station.
Other locations we're looking for:
-a house/apartment to shoot interior and exterior shots in an older neighbourhood.
-an alley in an older apartment.
-a Church. like St. Mary Magdalene.
-another house/apartment to shoot interior and exterior shots in an older neighbourhood with a porch and backyard.
-an old diner.
And ideas or leads would be very much appreciated!
THANK YOU TORONTO!
