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).

  1. like you say Shel, win some, lose some – spectacular result for 2 4 1.
    With any competitive arena there are always so many variables – quality of work is often not as important as we think it is or think it should be.

  2. Congrats on Two 4 One! It was truly spectacular and I loved it! As for the 3 Day International Novel Contest…keep going Shel. This is just a “bump” in the road to your literary success. When the going gets tough…the tough get going. You are a very talented writer/playwright….keep up the good work. It will happen.
