There is something very romantic, old fashioned, and distinct about this city.
Three weeks ago, the entire Toronto office found ourselves temporarily relocated to the city of Quebec. We were brought there to film an intensive three-day corporate conference – ultimately producing a highlight film (or same day edit) for the final day. We wanted to accentuate the backdrop of the festivities, Quebec City, as a character in part of the final film – showing the beauty, energy, and history the city has to offer.
Found along the Saint Lawrence River, Quebec City has in the past always taken a backseat to Montreal. Being the smaller of the two major cities in la belle province, I have to say it takes a backseat to no place. There is something very romantic, old fashioned, and distinct about the city. The architecture and old neighbourhoods are especially unique; streets are lined with cobblestones, while beautiful historical landmarks are found peppered throughout the surrounding areas. The people are friendly and extremely welcoming, and the Québécois city culture and food sometimes makes you feel like you’re in a different country altogether.
In the end, we spent one full day touring the beautiful city and shooting the sites, capturing timelapses from morning to night. Here are some of the spectacular views we were privileged to experience.
