STEELTOWN CHICK PRODUCTIONS is located in Hamilton. Owner and true steeltown chick, (she used to work in a factory!) Kelly, has nearly 20 years of experience working in the film and tv industry. She is passionate about the power of moving pictures to tell stories and to engage and impact an audience. Her true passion is writing and directing docs, and her thrill is producing features in all capacities including line producing to production management. She has had the pleasure of working with Mira Sorvino, Paul Sorvino, Daryl Hannah, Michael Madsen, James Caan and the late Margot Kidder.
STC offers professional location services for all projects. Hamilton is a hotbed for productions and, having been born and raised as well as working in the industry here, we know this city inside and out. Kelly has a solid network of contacts including real estate agents who can advise on which commercial and residential properties are available for shooting, giving an edge at helping you find what you want within your budget and time frame. From researching and scouting locations of all kinds – Kelly will handle the entire booking process including contracts. She often receives compliments on her level of professionalism and commitment to excellence, as well as how fun and friendly the experience is. As mentioned, she has the home court advantage – living in the same town as the residential and commercial property owners there’s a camaraderie and immediate bond that no other scout can compete with.
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. Kelly has been working with the Hamilton Film Office for nearly 2 decades on various productions. She can handle all your permitting needs including production parking and holding, booking PDO (paid duty officers), local law enforcements for traffic stoppage, SPFX etc.
