Win some. Lose some.

Two 4 One took home honours at the Victoria Film Festival last weekend. Maureen Bradley (writer, director, editor), Daniel Hogg (producer), and Amy Belling (director of cinematography) were on stage for Q & A sessions after the two sold-out shows. Audience response was spectacular and the film won Best Canadian Feature Length Film! Congrats to all. For my part I wish to add that the cast and crew worked tirelessly through the adversity of a super-tight shooting schedule and some pretty wicked weather to get the job done. The group came together as a cohesive whole and I will long remember the experience as invigorating and uplifting. Thank you Maureen. If you missed it, Two 4 One will be showing at Cinecenta on March 24 and 25. Hope to see you there.
On a more sombre note, I did not win the 2014 3-Day Novel contest. It is a credit to the quality of A Decent Calling that I thought the book had a chance. Given my success at the contest last year, I know what it takes to win and I put my all into the most recent submission. Perhaps I’ll release excerpts of it here. It’s a solid novella and perhaps only the fourth fictional account of life in law school released in the past forty years (The Paper Chase, Legally Blonde, The Faculty Club).
