Brentwood Bay is among the Island communities being used in the film The Note – Heart Healer. The film includes familiar faces like Genie Francis (General Hospital) and Ted McGinly (Married with Children and Happy Days).
The story centres on the search for a young woman, played by Trail’s Laci Mailey, who leaves her child on the doorstep of Francis’ character, a writer.
The Note will take around 14 days to shoot and will also film in Victoria, Cobblehill and Ladysmith. Brentwood Bay will be tied in with downtown Ladysmith to create a fictional Washington state coastal town for the film.
Filming in Brentwood started Aug. 10 with more expected Aug. 18 to 26 on private docks near the Seahorses Cafe and private property on Brentwood Bay Drive.
