Who is Alpha Select Production Studios?

With 20+ years in the movie production industry, she is on a mission to take action to create a circular economy, reducing waste & carbon footprint in film.

What we offer
Alpha Select is the
future of production.
Our key goal is to build a strong and diverse crew from which you can easily choose. We understand the importance of personalities and cultures and will work with you to connect the right people to our partner app and to the right project.
Alpha Select has a passion to create a circular economy that rethinks how we look at film production. Our method of sourcing and tracking equipment for our zero waste program, organizing material recovery and coordinating material donations will save every department time and money.
We want to make filming on Vancouver Island easier by facilitating many of the logistics. Every production is different. Providing productions with a variety of ways will not only give access to BC’s incredible tax incentives but will work on ways to save you money from pre-production all the way to post.

Frequently Asked Questions.
What can we help you with today?
The project's goal is to create at least 1000 sustainable, well-paying, film industry jobs, not including new sectors that will emerge under the sustainability umbrella. Transitioning to a circular economy involves eliminating waste from the life cycle of products and services.
These new opportunities span various sectors, such as food production and donation; waste management; repair, reuse and resale of textiles; plastic containers and packaging recycling and construction material reuse and donation.
Additionally, there are promising prospects in virtual and augmented reality, with forecasts anticipating a $1.5 trillion GDP output from this sector by 2030.
A feasibility study found that, over the next 10-years, if we did the 5% bare requirements, we would need to train more crew in 5 major groups;
Design crew – 3,362
Operations crew– 1,962
Services crew – 2,265
Talent – 488
Technician crew – 1,725
- more experienced crew to pass on their knowledge to those with less experience.
- to provide competency, apprenticeship style training, and mentoring to ensure that crew have help.
- to work with the unions and guilds to ensure that we are not replicating training.
YES! It is absolutely our goal to attract Hollywood features and series to our world-class film studios. We also have a mission to create a hub for our indigenous and domestic filmmakers to feel they have a place.
Beverley Dondale, Founder and CEO, had a vision. She has invested significant time and effort into this project, which has evolved through multiple iterations to its present state. Beginning in 2010, the initial efforts fell short of achieving the envisioned sustainability goals. In 2015, prioritizing indigenous involvement, Beverley decided to pursue collaboration. Approaching the Malahat Nation, which owned the necessary land, they quickly embraced the vision and the opportunity for partnership. Despite facing occasional setbacks along the way, steady progress is now being made towards achieving the project's objectives.
Yes. We are not creating a new industry. Vancouver Island is already a sought-after location-based film destination. What we need to do is keep this industry on the island.
