When we launched Hello (Again) last year we were excited and nervous about how we would be received. And launching on the same weekend as Everything Everywhere All At Once who knew that the company we were keeping would be so stellar! Let’s keep sharing the short form series that is Hello (Again), aiming for some International love very soon!
Last week we finished the EAVE On Demand Access Program, presented by NSI and CMF. It was a mindblowing experience on all fronts. 3 workshops throughout the year so that we as Producers and Executive Producers can further our companies and our projects to be marketplace ready. Working with mentors who can empathize with our paths and journeys was a tremendous experience. If you’re looking to take part in the next cohort, send me an email to learn more. I highly recommend this program for all Producers looking to take their projects and production companies to the next level.

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.
