Orange Hat Film Productions

Independent Film Production Company


Hello Filmmakers!

We are Orange Hat Film Productions, a London-based film company interested in all aspects of filmmaking. Established in 2014, over the years we have created a web series, music videos, and are currently working on our fourth feature film.

Our key creatives are:

Darryl Ayles – cinematographer, writer, director, editor


Jamara Forbes – Art director, production manager, director, editor

Both are graduates of Fanshawe College’s Advanced Filmmaking program and are passionate about showcasing local talent and original stories created by Canadians.

In our current equipment repertoire we are using the Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K with Meike and vintage lenses, pocket jib, shoulder rig, slider, aperture monitor, Sennheiser microphone, and more.

We would love to use our camera, lighting, grip, and expertise to help you bring your vision to life.



London, Ontario, Canada


Fresh, never-seen locations, access to hard-to-book spaces like our airport and university, and a warm welcome for filming with plenty of support services… London, Ontario is open for business to the film and television industry for productions large and small.   

London can be whenever or wherever you want us to be. We have streetscapes and architecture that can stand in for cities across North America. Gorgeous in any season, ‘The Forest City’ is the 11th largest metropolitan area in Canada, capable of hosting any size of production. Our anchor position in Southwestern Ontario gives us access to rural, agricultural and unique small townscapes.  

We’re only 2 hours down the highway from Toronto, 1 ½ hours from Hamilton, and have an international airport, GoTrain and Via Rail access. Best of all, we boast a strong and growing local talent and crew capability. Our film office and the city are dedicated to providing location support, smooth permitting, access to reasonable accommodations and a positive production experience for local, national and international filmmakers. 

Call to let us help find the perfect locations for your next film or TV project. 

Interested in filming on City of London-owned properties? 

The City is here to assist with navigating policies and procedures associated with filming on City properties including parks, roads, sidewalks, and City-owned facilities/buildings.
