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.
If you’re all wondering where I am today, it’s Edmonton, Alberta! I’m attending in person workshops – 3rd of 3 workshops. EAVE On Demand – Presented by the National Screen Institute Canada (NSI) with the support of Canadian Media Fund (CMF). This has been a mind-blowing experience of Producing workshops. If anyone is thinking of applying for next year, I’d love to chat with you. It’s definitely worth the investment of time.
We are happy and excited to announce the next phase of 100 Dragons. Christine Tyson joins 100 Dragons as Development Executive.

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
It’s been a whirlwind 2021 with so many firsts happening. And we wish to send love and seasons greetings to all who have supported us in our endeavors. We are looking forward to an active 2022.
Wishing you a safe and Happy Holiday Season from our Time-Jumping, K-Drama, Rom-Com coming soon to CBC Gem in 2022
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.
Today was pitch day! What do we learn as professionals who’ve pitched ourselves for 20 years already in the industry. Not sure how we could have survived in an industry, if we didn’t know how to pitch. In a world where your next job means what the decision-maker thinks of you, we are constantly on! But sometimes it’s just validation that we need. Yes, what we do has a name… what we do is well received… what we do is great… what we do is a shared experience! And as I mentioned in day 3, it’s just that we should follow our gut. And from this experience, we gleaned as much as we could. Thanks WIFT for offering this program. Thanks NBC Universal and Telefilm for sponsoring this event. We’ll see you in the movies!
On Day 3 we had 2 speakers – casting with Marissa Richmond and Distribution with Caroline Habib. We were asked to submit character descriptions. Kept vague on purpose, and if I had kept to my instinct, we might have had a bigger roster to glean from, but we were given some suggestions in casting. But as with all the sessions before, I realized that my gut instinct meant a lot more than just what each presenter brought to the table. And what I’m realizing is that a producer’s gut feeling means so much and each guest only feeds to that gut so that we-as producers-keep going to the finish line. The film is the thing and producers must keep driving that process and steering that ship to stay on course.
