They are currently filming Titans Season 2 on James at the Church that reaches to Hughson. Big production, tons of trucks and people. Filming until tomorrow and Friday it seems.

Over the weekend there was a crew filming in the Wallingford residence at McMaster. Anyone know what that was for?

The Ancaster McDonalds out near Duff's Corners had a film crew working on something a couple of days ago. Had a trailer, a large reflector and lights on site--probably a MCD commercial. Or maybe Handmaid's Tale?

Hamilton’s oldest hydro building is being turned into a stunning film production studio

18 August 2020 - 2:30pm Michael urbanicity.com

A gorgeous piece of Hamilton’s heritage will soon see a new, reinvigorated life as a major hub for film production and creative innovation.

n a video announcement via YouTube, Hamilton-based filmmaker and content creator Christoph Benfey has shared the thrilling news that, after 7 years of work and hustle, the massive hydro building at 366 Victoria Avenue North – the oldest of its kind in the city – will be turned into a brand new epicenter for film & television production and content creation.

The building, originally home to the Cataract Power Company, has been standing in Hamilton since 1898; a 122 year-old Hamilton landmark.

This is an especially timely new development for Hamilton, as the city continues to grow as a notable hub for major film & television production and already has a number of established facilities including the Hamilton Film Studios and Digital Canaries, both in the city’s north end.

The new facility, known as Evil Empire Studios, will be a fresh and innovative space housing local filmmakers, content creators, and production companies.

“My dream for Evil Empire Studios is for it to become a vibrant hub for all things Film & Content Creation in Hamilton, but in order for us to make that dream a reality we need vibrant filmmakers to join our community!” says Benfey in his announcement, adding that Hamiltonian filmmakers who want to join in on the action can send inquiries through the Evil Empire Studios website.

To learn more about this exciting new Hamilton development and stay up to date, check out Evil Empire Studios on social media.

That's great. Lots of old industrial buildings ripe for re-use, and that one is quite a beauty.

A group of staffers for famed Hollywood director Guillermo Del Toro are headed to Hamilton soon to scout possible locations for a film studio, says Mayor Fred Eisenberger. And it all happened with a tweet.

City economic development staff are already looking at potential locations, Eisenberger says. Before long, Del Toro's company is expected to join them.

"Discussions are happening," Eisenberger said. "We'll talk about what their interests are and whether there are appropriate sites — and I believe there are — and we'll go from there."

They were planning on filming "Nightmare Alley" here at the Connaught for a few important scenes. I met Del Toro as well. COVID shut down production. Hopefully, they contact us soon about potentially shooting some stuff.
