The plan was simple.  My shift ended at 8pm, the party started at 8pm, and the venue was only a couple of blocks away from work.  Punch out, throw on a dress, touch up my makeup, and make it to the 16th Annual Young Filmmakers Party just fashionably late.  Seems simple enough, right?  I’m sure you know where this is going…

I’ve had the good fortune of having my work screened at another film festival.  On Friday, April 13, the music video for Jakalope’s song Magnolia played to a sold-out crowd as part of the ReelWorld Film Festival‘s Music Video Night.  Of all the countless videos out there, we were chosen as one of only 25 official selections programmed for the evening.

This weekend is an exciting one for me.  For the first time, my work has been seen on-screen in Spain.  My Spanish debut came yesterday with the screening of The Taste of Relation at the Marbella International Film Festival.  Our film was accepted as one of 47 selections from over 1000 applicants.  This marks my third European film festival screening, after last year’s acceptances at Amsterdam and Cyprus.

It’s been an eventful summer.  Slow in terms of work, but rich in life experiences.  The most profound of these would be the recent passing of my grandfather.  An opinionated, stubborn, kind man, he always had a twinkle in his eye.  He was born a second-generation Canadian on his father’s side, but was very proud of his Irish roots.  I can often remember seeing the Irish flag flying high above me when I would go up to spend a weekend.  He would go on walks with us (his gaggle of grandchildren; he had a lot), take us down to the brook to play, and hike us out to the family waterfalls and the old forested homestead and graves where his ancestors had first taken root in this new land.  He was always good for telling a story that would leave you in stitches, or throwing another log in the fire to make sure that your toes were warm enough.  I’ll miss him more than I can say.

I’ve waited to see this movie since I saw the casting breakdown posted about 3 years ago. Finally, after a successful festival run and scooping up 12 awards along the way, the film has come to Toronto. A true Canadian indie film, Son of the Sunshine apparently had to put up a good fight to secure its week long run at a Toronto cinema. The nay-sayers were quickly proven wrong when the film performed so well on opening weekend that the theatre decided to hold it over and let it run for an additional week.

Today was our first day of production for “Still Life”, our Life’s Good Film Fest entry.  We had a great day!  The weather was gorgeous for our outdoor shoots in the parks.  Everyone got along really well.  We moved quickly, and called it a day by 8pm.  With most of our exterior shots done, we move on to interior on tuesday and have a couple of pickups for sunday.  We were able to view the day’s footage, and the cinematography looks beautiful.  It’s the prettiest thing we’ve shot yet.  I hope the remaining two days go as well as today!
