Our Team:

John Chilton


John Chilton: President and Owner of Scenic Oasis Film Inc.

The beginning of my work in film related endeavors goes back to '74 when I assisted the designer on a theatrical production of King Lear. This production was at the Belgrade Theater in my home town of Coventry, England.

Scenic Oasis Film and Camel Productions have supplied the local film & commercial industry for over 25 years and also worked with many American companies on projects in advertising and film.

In many instances our work is sought by architects, promoters and interior designers who are looking for the unusual or the dramatic. Some of our work can be found in shopping malls, McDonalds, and the University of B.C.

Our clients have included the British Foreign Office, Political parties, tourism departments of government, photographers, Oil companies, Ballet, Opera & Modern Dance companies
