Here’s what a Vancouver-set ‘Wizard of Oz’ might look like Vancouver Film School student Dio Ostuni’s concept art reimagines what it might look like if Frank Baum’s classic The Wizard of Oz were set in the Rain City instead of the Emerald City. Ostuni is currently studying Concept Art at the Vancouver Film School, and a recent project had him re-imagining a classic story and creating a design pack including characters and locations.
