Blog Number 108 - History of Ice Storm Studios in Frank Miller's '300'

In January 2002, the Toronto-based Moliflex-White Group purchased the Ice Storm Studios located in the former Angus shipyards in north-central Montreal. These facilities had been used for various shoots, including 'The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne'.

In late 2003, Ice Storm Studios had been placed under bankruptcy protection with the deal brokered by PricewaterhouseCoopers, which acted as the court-appointed receiver. Mel's Cite du Cinema then acquired Ice Storm Studios with Pricewaterhouse Coopers acting as the intermediary in the sale.

All of this brings us to the current location of the shooting of '300'. It's off the beaten path, however, they are filming it at Ice Storm!

Thanks John for the update(though a little too late).As far as I know from the site of 'The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne',I prefer these hard-earned artists to management.I'm curious to know how '300' will appear.

Hi Miyuki~

If '300' is a hit, these artists will probably receive much more attention because of their work in a relatively new field.

Cheers,

John
