Announcing a BIG and AMAZING step on our journey to finishing the film and getting it done in time for Sundance!! Woot!!
Duck Duck Goose
When I was young, I used to play this game "Duck, Duck, Goose." No, I'm not talking some strange off shoot of the film Top Gun and Beach Volleyball, but I am talking about how a game I played in school oddly relates to our film's journey!
Playing with the boys and choosing who is going to be running around with me at my side, in this race around the final stage to finish the film in time for Sundance, has landed us a Duck instead of a Goose in a game and I am excited to start playing!
Brian Schecter of Puddleduck Productions, has come on board as a Producer, Advisor and Post Production Supervisor of our film, One Night in Seattle.
Brian comes on board with 35 years experience. Puddle Duck Productions is a multi-media production company serving clients in both Canada and the U.S. and abroad. Clients include all major North American networks such as the CBC/SRC, CTV/TVA, TSN/RDS, SportsNet, Canwest Global, and TQS in Canada as well as NBC, ABC, ESPN, Fox Sports, CBS, TWI, Disney, PBS and Kagan Research in the United States.
How I met Brian.
Div, the Golf Ball
I met Brian dancing around a fire pit at the Banff World Television Festival. It was the one of the festivals outdoor parties, the theme was 'cowboy-cowpoke-wildwest-something', and I was celebrating winning the CTV National Fellowship at the Banff World Television Festival for my Dakar Rally project.
I was wearing a straw cowboy hat and NOT pitching my documentary, but rather was quite lost in my telling of an animated world I had created about Div, a young Range Ball that dreamed of playing out on the fabled Greens that whispered his name at the far edges of his dead end life in the driving range world he was born into. Brian fell in love with Div's world and needless to say, a friendship formed.... and a few stories launched that day from the Golf Tourney...
Yes, we both played in the Festival's golf tourney, where I almost drove the golf cart AND the very important CAVCO guy in my cart, off road over a mini-mound and into the grand bow river below. A story that circled the festival faster than I could floor the golf cart...
And yes, I made a little video of that day in Banff here --> VIP's & Me Tee off in Banff
Brian has been in my circle of mentors/advisors for 4 years, and now, we finally get to work together. I am proud to be able to share this film with him and welcome Brian, to the film and producer team! Exactly how I want to finish this film - with my friends and family.
Happy Film Girl & celebrations ahead! Woot!! RallyUP and Get your ROAD-TRIP ON!! We are on our way to Sundance!!
Hugs and Love,
