Travel is in our Blood
Wallop Film is an independent production agency in Vancouver working alongside a full-service digital agency, Wallop. We’re a tight-knit team that creates cinematic short films and bite-sized content. The Wallop Film team has created film, photography, and video projects for some of the world’s leading travel brands and advertising agencies. Our differentiation is our world-class storytelling, internationally diverse team, and our expertise around web and social content.
Why we are Different
Wallop Film is a hybrid between an agency and a production company. We provide services more commonly offered by ad agencies (creative direction, concepts, storyboards) in addition to more traditional production company services like shooting and post-production. All work is managed by a lean, core group of experienced creatives – and tailored to match the scope and requirements of each project. Not every job requires professional actors, make-up, wardrobe, drones, or specialized camera equipment. Our efficient approach ensures you don’t pay for things you don’t need.

We Work with Brands in Three Ways
How We Work
In each situation, we determine a package of offerings based on an existing budget. This package is designed to deliver the most utility to the organization, in alignment with their marketing goals. Our services often include the following:
A discovery process on location to develop a strong creative concept with our client.
A series of in-house creative sessions to develop a strong narrative or story about the destination/product.
A lean and mobile production team to shoot content efficiently with a small footprint. This is based on client needs, and can include an aerial drone or other specialty filming equipment.
Expertise and consulting on integration and tracking of this content on the web, through our sister company Wallop.
