STEELTOWN CHICK PRODUCTIONS is a full service production company located in Hamilton, Ontario. We specialize in Features, Docs, Commercials and PSAs. Owner and true steeltown chick, (she used to work in a factory!) Kelly, has nearly 20 years of experience working in the industry. She is passionate about the power of moving pictures to tell the stories of people and to engage and impact an audience. Her true passion is writing and directing docs, and her thrill is producing features from field producing to production management.
We offer professional location scouting for all projects. We specialize in finding the perfect location for features, series and commercials. Hamilton is a hotbed for productions and, having been born and raised as well as working in the industry here, our team knows this city inside and out. We have a solid network of contacts including real estate agents who can advise us on which commercial and residential properties are available for shooting, giving us an edge at helping you find what you want within your budget and time frame. Our Team researches and scouts out locations of all kinds and will handle the entire booking process. We often receive compliments on our professionalism and commitment to excellence, as well as how fun and friendly our team is. As mentioned, we have the home court advantage. We live in the same town as the residential and commercial property owners and there’s a camaraderie and immediate bond that no other scout can compete with. We will get you what you want.
Film permits in Hamilton can be tedious. Knowing which rules and regulations exist, which streets fall under certain permitting, etc can all be confusing and very time consuming for newbies to the area. We have been working with the Hamilton Film Office for nearly 2 decades on many varied productions. We can handle all your permitting needs including crew and trailer parking, booking PDO (paid duty officers), local law enforcements for traffic stoppage, SPFX forms, etc.
