|In the third year of this series, expect me to write about and photograph the current film and TV productions – Tomorrowland, Once Upon a Time, Arrow, Supernatural, Bates Motel, Almost Human, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland and our own Arctic Air and Motive – which showcase our city and sometimes put a celebrity actor or two in the frame.

Vancouver’s own crime drama Motive began filming its second season around town after the Labour Day weekend. The hit CTV/ABC procedural is unusual for two reasons: Vancouver plays itself not somewhere else and Motive is a whydunit not a whodunit. At the top of each episode, we learn who The Killer and The Victim are and then follow along with detectives Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman) and Oscar Vega (Louis Ferreira) as they solve the murder and uncover the reasons behind it. Here are the two leads on False Creek Fishermen’s Wharf at Granville Island, walking down to a yacht.
On the way they pass a caterer (Niall Matter) walking back to a real life Lazy Gourmet van. The well-known Vancouver caterer must be a featured player in this crime because the night shoot took place inside its headquarters on West 5th Avenue.
