Service Productions

National Powerhouse, Local Expertise.
Choose Frantic Films, Your Go To Service Production Partner.

Frantic Films isn’t just a Manitoba and Ontario based production company, we’re your national production partner. We understand the unique needs and opportunities of filming across the country.

The Best Tax Credits in the Country

Leverage the strengths of each province’s incentives as well as the federal programs available to film and tv projects. Our head office is in Manitoba which has the highest tax credits in the country – a rebate of up to 65% of Manitoba labour, with no Canadian content rules, copyright ownership requirements, or caps! We can strategically split production and post-production between provinces, maximizing resources, locations, tax credits, and other financing opportunities.

Our Teams

Our in-house finance and legal teams are some of the best in the business and will ensure you maximize these credits. Our production and post teams will ensure a smooth and cost-effective production. The Toronto office has 14 offline edit and online edit suites overseen by our full-time post-production team, ready to elevate your project to the next level.

Federal Boost, Currency Advantage:

Combine provincial tax credits with federal programs and you’ve got a bankable credit that significantly impacts your project’s financing. Plus, take advantage of potential currency benefits!

Award-Winning Excellence:

We’ve delivered success across virtually every TV genre, with over 160 awards and numerous ratings records. From lifestyle to factual, reality to sports, comedy to drama, Frantic Films has a proven track record of exceeding expectations. We produce features, half and one-hour series, and one-offs for leading Canadian and international buyers.

Seamless Collaboration:

Our passionate team prioritizes your vision. We understand the needs of all stakeholders – co-producers, financiers, cast, and crew – ensuring productions are completed on time, on budget, and exceeding expectations.
