Filming in Vancouver


Today a film crew was filming scenes for the movie "MVP - part 2" right in front of the office where Ton works (Crystal Decisions at 840 Cambie Street). He took some pictures. The movies stars a monkey. They use three different chimpanzees for the main character and today one of them was on the set.
