Video Postproduction Services in Canada
The Video Postproduction Services industry in Canada has dealt with tightening demand and a rapidly changing technological landscape over the five years to 2017. The development of advanced editing software has enabled clients to establish in-house postproduction teams to save money and streamline the production process. However, tax incentives and the depreciation of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar have encouraged US video producers to bring postproduction business to Canada, colloquially known as ""Hollywood North,"" as their budgets can go further in provinces that provide tax credits. Over the next five years, industry revenue is expected to continue growing, as rapidly changing postproduction technologies may be beyond the scope of in-house units to perform. However, with an expected rise in the value of the Canadian dollar, growth will slow.
This industry primarily provides postproduction services to the motion picture and video industries. Services include editing, film or tape transferring, subtitling, creating credits, closed captioning, computer graphics, animation, special effects and developing and processing film. This industry does not include mass duplication, audio services in a sound recording studio or operating archives.
