I had the pleasure of working on a scene in this film, on set at Casa Loma. I had two projectiles sticking out of my body, and kept to myself, in a shadowy corner of the main hall.
I got to do ADR months later, as well, which is always a blast.
Trailers have become an art form much in the way music videos evolved - you'll find most fall into two categories.
1. Art form trailer that sells the story by being a standalone, entertaining short watch (think Wolf of Wallstreet - damn that's a tight trailer) 2. An abridged version of the film; gives you the shape and idea of the forest without spoiling every tree along the way.
This is such a fun trailer, and I very much look forward to seeing the movie!
I joked with my friend that I had to die twice to get the role (which is emotionally exhausting - to perform a slow death). Funnily, I died several more times on the day, and then months later in the sound booth. I'm dying to see the film! (Wah wah!)
Our cuts to education documentary has the promise of an interview with an MPP next week.
I'm excited at the idea of progress, as it will be the first ladder rung we climb. In the meantime, we tried to use the content we had on hand to make a short awareness video.
It sort of serves as a sample of the content - I really do hope we get to unpack more. We go on to analyze the budget, and dissect the peripheral fallout to having bloated class sizes (that's something I'm looking forward to editing).
In the creative world, there are so many auditions and considerations that I usually just call the journey: Collecting Rejection.
I actually quite like it! I have a realistic projection in my mind of how and when my work might land (and if it doesn't, I'm happy to go at it anyhow). That being said - both submitting work and receiving rejection have become super easy to track with Submittable - I'm late to the party and I'm sure it's a commonplace resource, but when you're working and like something - there needs to be a shout out! It lets me submit all my screen, stage, and prose work.
The best advice I had this year was about hunkering down and finishing things. I've too often been a third act hero - I would always set my stories up, and then move on to another instead of finishing. I know a lot of artists who are the same.
Over the next year, countless teachers will lose their jobs; class sizes will be increased; funding will be cut for special need classes, and every student will have a mandatory online class to compensate for the shift overall.
