City hall changes in the Downtown area are going to be beneficial for different sectors in the city. One of them is the Filmmaking industry, new building and streets mean new locations to film and reasons to attract new projects. Fanshawe having a film making program plays a big role in the local scene. Program coordinator, Adamm Liley says London right now is more of a corporate video market but that might change within the next few years. However, Liley always recommends his students to move out of London if they want to work on big projects.
“I have to tell my students that there really isn’t a lot here, and they have to think about the larger Television film markets Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and Halifax. If they stay in London will be paying their bills working at corporate videos.” Adamm Liley
