Production Day 1: Friday the 13th

Super Roommates began filming on Friday the 13th of March. It was amidst a snowstorm, and there was an accident on Deerfoot, so I arrived on set after pretty much all my cast & crew, but our location still wasn’t available to us until fifteen minutes after our call time so it wasn’t bad. Yet.

A Year as a Filmmaker

Recap of my year:

January – I wrote a five-page script called “Phone Call”.

February – I created my production company, Foolish Fox Films and filmed “Phone Call”.

July – I had an idea for a web series and wrote two episodes. “Phone Call”, was completed and submitted to festivals.

September – I pitched my web series idea and a week later “Phone Call” won best comedy at its first festival.

November – I found out my web series had received 20k in funding from Telus Storyhive.

Workouts That Work

I’ve been trying out different ways of working out recently. The gym doesn’t work for me. I go there, I watch Netflix on the elliptical for an hour, do a few floor exercises that I do at home anyway, and I leave. It’s not fun for me, I don’t see any progress, and I’m probably doing something wrong without knowing it. Because of all that, I don’t feel excited or willing to go to the gym, and as a result, I spend money on a membership that does not get used.

From an Airport

I stopped writing for a while. Half because I got busy, half because, I don’t know. I stopped feeling like a writer.

I’m in an airport as I write this, but won’t be anymore when you read it. I’m on my way to Ho Chi Minh city in Vietnam, where I will rendezvous with my mom, my sister Amy, and my brother Marvin. My flights were booked later and as a result, I’m travelling separately from them.
