‘Sense, Sensibility & Snowmen’ Was Filmed in Canada
Sense, Sensibility & Snowmen was filmed in Canada in July, TV Insider shared. But despite the warm and sunny days, Hallmark captures the Christmas feeling perfectly once again.
TV Insider noted that a strip mall was transformed into a winter paradise with wreaths, lights, and decorations. They even had a snow machine to give that perfect wintery feeling. Macfarlane joked that when he was sampling catering options for the movie, his goal was to finish the scene in “12 crab cakes or less.”
Maple Ridge News shared that they also make fake snow with cotton batting and might even truck in real snow from nearby hockey rinks.
Here’s a photo Krakow shared during filming.
Vancouver was home for much of the filming, City News reported. It was one of five holiday films shot in British Columbia in July. This was director David Winning’s 15th Hallmark movie. About 70 of Hallmarks more than 100 movies in 2019 were shot in Canada.
Here are some behind-the-scenes photos and videos Krakow shared.
