The second of my quarantine vlogs, one month into isolating from the pandemic.
On Amy’s birthday this year, I started vlogging my life in the middle of a pandemic.
Things are precarious right now.
I am writing this from the other end of a pandemic. Or maybe from the middle. Or even the beginning. I guess we’ll see, won’t we?
Life is like the Hunger Games, except we don’t know we’re in the arena.
Writing about characters who aren’t social distancing is actually a bit difficult. This is a side effect of the COVID-19 pandemic that I must admit I did not expect.
I am writing this from bed on Day 9 of self-isolation (because I’m smart). I hope you’re doing well.
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.
Things have been happening. In fact, this is the first time since 2020 started that I felt like things have slowed down enough for me to work on anything that isn’t work. So here I am, on this blog, trying to pretend I haven’t neglected it for several weeks now.
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.
On Thursday November 28th, Storyhive announced which 40 web series pilots they’ve decided to fund. Mine was one of them.
