DG-1000. One based in the Pacific Northwest, dragged up to Canada for filming.

Don't ask too much, you'll open a can of worms you don't want to deal with: the dragging was done by a club's towplane and was a very controversial use of a not-for-profit club's resources in a for-profit venture by a small group of individuals who do not form the majority of said club. (And it was doubly-controversial, since another local DG-1000 owner died a couple of years ago in a crash while filming a car commercial using his glider).
