Last December I was invited to speak on a panel about building a production company. I wanted to share this here so you can understand some of the building blocks as to what is important. See if you get to the question where they ask about work life balance. Am I blushing? LOL
As we go into Day 3 of Principal Photography on Hello (Again), I want to thank everyone for all the support for dreams being made. So many of our supporters know just how challenging it is to launch into a project, let alone in the midst of a pandemic. But with so much good will for this project, I am thankful for everyone who has helped bring this project into production. We’ll keep you all posted as we go into post production and look for an air date on CBC Gem in 2022. All our international friends, spread the word so we can ensure you are able to watch this in your area.
In 2018, I had done a pitch for TIFF to get into the Producers Lab. Although I wasn’t selected for the pitch, I did get Casian Elwes’ attention and received some 1 on 1 mentoring. This was my pitch demo. Hope it tells you a little bit about me.

For the last year I had the honour and pleasure to produce Moze Mossanen’s latest feature documentary My Piece of the City. For weeks Moze followed the process of the musical endeavor The Journey. He tirelessly watched the performance camp as aspiring young members of the Regent Park community demonstrated their abilities. And as we went into production with the schedule of rehearsals for The Journey meandering over two and half months, pinpointing the 9 days of shoot were challenging at best. But I think we were able to capture all of the wonderful moments that these young performers faced as they put together this reflection of a community in transition. The excitement, the hope, the fears and the internal and external conflicts that these youth face during rehearsals, in their lives and in their surroundings are all relevant to revitalization projects in the inner city around the world. With the generous support of Daniels and Innocon, we are excited to be submitting this film to festivals and hope to be announcing some acceptances soon. Look for further announcements in the future!
