Video of the Day: Vancouver Never Plays Itself

vancouverneverplaysitself1

Another entertaining instalment of Tony Zhou’s ongoing series, Every Frame a Painting. This time around, Zhou focuses on his hometown of Vancouver, B.C. pointing out the nagging contradiction that, despite being the third biggest film city in North America, Vancouver Never Plays Itself! While detailing just how easy it is to disguise a generic, chameleon-like city like Vancouver as someplace else, Zhou also questions what it means that Vancouver is so often the location of a filmset but never the setting of the movie. Watch below!

    I remember being far from home and seeing The Never Ending Story, as Falcor flew through the streets of the Downtown Eastside. Little kids we hopping into dumpsters. Such a bad idea. In my homesickness, I made my own Falcor flying experience.
