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!

Today, Emily Weedon and I started the WIFT-T Development Incubator sponsored by NBC Universal and Telefilm Canada. What a terrific opening day it was to work with Jamie Goetz who read and gave us notes on our script with lots to think about in turning a good script into a great script! So many things to consider and so many suggestions to wade through. It’s wonderful to have a seasoned story editor to give us feedback on our project as we move this project into full course press!
