And just like that, another month has passed. Does it seem like it went by awfully quickly to you, too? Maybe it’s because I’m gearing up to go to camera May 1 on my NSI Drama Prize When Fish Fly with producer Lora Campbell. I’m so excited about this project, and with the chance to work with such a great cast and crew, including a ton of really talented women, like Steph Clattenburg, Jessica Tate and Victoria Bouchard, just to name a few.
And speaking of NSI Drama Prizes, a huge congrats to Leah Johnston (and Andre Pettigrew) who have completed their Drama Prize from 2013, Some Things Won’t Sleep. Leah is an amazing director/writer/actor/photographer and this film starring Alexis Milligan is a visual treat. I’m so excited to see what Leah comes up with next.
Another film just finished production and has headed into post-land, and that is Nicole Steeve’s and Jenna Murphy’s FILM 5 Playing House. Here’s a sneak of what to expect from this highly original project- Gary and Janet struggle to work on their strained marriage, despite the fact that they are only 9 years old. The stills from this look incredible and I can’t wait to see the finished product! Nicole also just got hired on as a writer for the hilarious web-series Just Passing Through. They are doing a kickstarter right now so you should spread the word and if you have some dollars to share, give them to this great campaign here:
Okay, that’s it for now. I’ve got a movie to make! But before, I want to say a special thanks to Britany Sparrow on her last issue of Tidings. Was a pleasure to work with you!
