Quarantine makes everything more exciting.
The Calgary Stampede was cancelled this year due to covid-19 so I unearthed footage from the last time I went to the Stampede and edited it into a video.
The second of my quarantine vlogs, one month into isolating from the pandemic.
Video editing is such a particular kind of work. There’s no hiding from it, and I kind of like that.
On Amy’s birthday this year, I started vlogging my life in the middle of a pandemic.
On Thursday November 28th, Storyhive announced which 40 web series pilots they’ve decided to fund. Mine was one of them.
If you need to catch up, I recommend reading my post, Pitching a Web Series.
I haven’t been posting as much lately as I should have, but that is because for the last month or so, I’ve been working on a web series. If you follow my reading/writing blog Precarious Reader, you may have read my post Derailed in which I mentioned that I had put aside the novel on which I’d been working for over nine years. I’d had an idea for a web series and I wrote two episodes, and then I got busy with some other stuff for a while and wasn’t sure where to go from there anyway.
I got super lucky in January in terms of roles. I managed to worm my way into four short films, two as the lead, one bit part and one background. But apparently that wasn’t enough for me, because I wanted to make a short film.
In November last year, I was lucky enough to play Hanna in Snowshoe & Monster, a webseries pilot for Telus Storyhive. We had three days and $10K to make the best pilot we could.
In February, the finished Snowshoe & Monster pilot came out and was one of two pilots chosen to make five more episodes with $50K.
2018 has been interesting in a good way. As with nearly every year, 2018 started with parties. Then there were a few days of chilling and getting organized in preparation for the upcoming year.
