After what felt like a long winter, March was such a beautifully inspirational month! It was, after all, Pisces season (woot). I went to my first inkdrinks (awesome meet-up of tv writers and other friendly folks in the industry), wrote a pilot for a new half-hour comedy that should be ready to pitch shortly, and found inspiration in so many places this month!
What Inspired Me:
Metric was a favourite band of mine throughout university, and as a birthday gift, Ryan bought me tickets to Dreams So Real - a TIFF screening of the last concert on their Pagans in Vegas tour, and after two hours of their music and a Q&A with the band, I left with my heart absolutely bursting and their albums have been back on heavy rotation in my life since then.
My hugely talented friends Brian Donnelly and Marnie White had an art opening at Cedar Ridge Gallery in Scarborough - it was great to see compelling visual art of several mediums on a gorgeous day in a beautiful space - this gallery is a stunning estate and definitely worth checking out (as is the work of these two incredible artists!)
A classmate from Windsor had a film in the Canadian Film Festival (Luba) which I am so glad I got the chance to see! Everything was so solid - the writing, directing, acting - you name it! They filmed every other weekend over the course of 4 months, and it proved that an incredibly moving project with high production values can be produced indie.
I was invited to a run-through of my friend Adam's newest show: How to Hug a Porcupine. His previous one-man puppet shows are award-winning, and with this one he has taken puppetry to a new level and I am sure it will strike a chord with audiences and critics alike!
I started watching The Killing (American Netflix version) this month and the suspense has me LIVING FOR IT. I find Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman such incredibly compelling actors, and I want to be both of them when I grow up.
