Flipping to the other aspect of our business, we are comitted
to staying abreast of developments in the world of Internet,
interactive and television broadcasting. It's not just about
the media, it's what you do with it once you have it! So in
service to our champion clients, authors and publishers, we'll
be on the trade show floor and in the expert panel sessions
and workshops to learn what's the newest, bestest ways to
get eyeballs to screen.
And as we always do, we'll have camera on site, so to book
your artists or executives during our time in Las Vegas, contact
Judith Keenan before
January 12 -- 416.519.0806.
It's a new world and partnerships are
everything. So the Victoria Film Festival decided to enhance
its industry event, which we had the opportnity to hover about
last year. As in previous years, VFF brought together top buyers,
distributors and braodcasters with a finite number of delegates,
ensuring that the experience was truly meaningful for both.
This year they are adding some of the best Canadian producers
and directors, willing and able to partner with those of us
sprouts coming into our own. Count me the first to register
(and I was!)
We're on site in Victoria Friday Jan 30 through Sunday February
2, as always with camera, and easily able to book commissioned
artists interviews in and around programmed events. Contact
Judith Keenan to make arrangements.
Vancouver publishers -- happy to make a
pit-stop -- call before Jan 12!
13-21 SXSW, Austin Texas
We won't know until January whether our
shorts made the cut - Pavane, A Life's Passion, Night Work, Nagasaki
Circus, and more -- but Texas is really good riding in March so
we're going fer shure!
Oh yeah, and its a great forum for scouting artists of all stripes,
seeing films in some of the most enjoyable theatres we know (food,
drink and bench seats, awsome) and totally geeking out with the
techies, all in the same place.
