Day 2 of WIFT-T Development Incubator

Today was Day 2 for Emily and I in the development incubator.  I got to ask some challenging questions in regards to financing and budgeting which is my area of expertise.  But still learned something new from John Griffith, as I try to do always in any situation.  Heard about the case study that was Book of Negroes from Damon D’Oliveira – what a dynamic speaker he is! And then had my mind blown in the afternoon with the big black hole that is packaging with Isabel Gomez-Moriana.  What it means to find a packaging agent and take your film to the next level.  And most importantly, got confirmation from other participants that our film is hilarious.  Whew! Always a good validation that others find you funny. A great day indeed!

Nobody’s Home is going to Hollywood!

Nobody’s Home is going to Hollywood!  We are honoured to be in official selection in the 2nd Annual Web Series Festival Global.  We are so stoked to be showcased in August.  Thanks for everyone’s support.  The more support we can get the more likely this series will be made.  Thanks for the ♥♥!

 

 

Regent Park Film Festival November 18 -21, 2015

I would love to have my friends and colleagues join me at the Regent Park Film Festival.  This year’s guests are exciting, including colleagues I’ve worked with: Cory Bowles (The Moblees), Clé Bennett (Heroes Reborn), and Dawn Wilkinson (Murdoch Mysteries). I’m looking forward to seeing the films for the pitch festival.  All films are free and the mission of this festival is so inspiring:

Mission: The Regent Park Film Festival is Toronto’s only free-of-charge multi-cultural community film festival, dedicated to showcasing local and international independent works relevant to inner-city communities across Toronto.  We host an annual festival and also hold year-round school and community screenings, workshops and discussions at no cost.

The Festival aims to reach isolated communities throughout Regent Park and beyond, providing a forum for people from all walks of life to engage in critical dialogue on social issues and to enjoy films from all over the world.

So come check out the link to the opening night of the festival, and reserve a seat!  See you there my friends.

Regent Park Film Festival November 18: 7:30 – 9:30
