“Advice to Love By” was filmed in Canada, IMDb reported. The production company that made the movie, Two 4 The Money, is based in Vancouver. The movie also had the working title of “Flirting with Romance” and “Love by the Book.”

The Twitter account @SleepyKittyPaw pointed out that the original name had to change because Hallmark already had a movie called “Love by the Book.”

This movie is closing out Hallmark’s Fall  Harvest lineup and is directed by Heather Hawthorn-Doyle. She’s also directing a new “Godwink Christmas” for Hallmark.

In late August they were working on post-production in Vancouver.

They wrapped on August 28 and Hawthorn-Doyle wrote, “And just like that, we’re wrapped! One heck of an experience / excited to get into the edit suite next week!”

They took safety seriously and were vaccinated and masked.

Darnell said he loved making this movie.

In an interview with Digital Journal, Darnell said about playing Nathan: “It was quite funny to play Nathan. He is extremely fun, that’s his personality in the whole movie. He goes by his heart and he is a big proponent of extravagant gestures of love.”

He said about filming for Hallmark: “We have enough drama and negativity in our lives and on the news, so it’s good to tune in to the Hallmark Channel to be able to escape reality.”
