Hawkinson spent three years shooting Hannibal before boarding the alternate WWII outcome series.


Based on Philip K. Dick’s award-winning novel, The Man in the High Castle imagines an alternate reality where the Japanese and Germans won World War II and divided the United States into three regions — the west coast as the Japanese Pacific States, the Rockies as a neutral zone and the east coast as the Greater Nazi Reich. Produced by Ridley Scott and Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files), the first season starred Alexa Davalos as Juliana Crain, Rupert Evans as Frank Frink, Luke Kleintank as double agent Joe Blake and Rufus Sewell as SS Obergruppenführer John Smith. Sewell was nominated for a Critics Choice Award for his performance.

The Man in the High Castle wraps its second season this month in metro Vancouver.

John S. Bartley was one of the nominees for Outstanding Cinematography for Vancouver-filmed Bates Motel, along with Directors of Photography on Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, Gotham, Homeland and House of Cards.

The Man in the High Castle also received an Emmy for Main Title Design.

And was nominated for Production Design (Drew Boughton, Production Designer; Linda King, Art Director; Brenda Meyers-Ballard, Set Decorator) and VFX.
