Love Jacked

Un joyeux film qui m’a donné l’occasion de travailler avec décoratrice Marian Wihak. Malheureusement, ils n’avaient pas besoin de moi pour la partie tournée en Afrique, mais les lieux de tournage en Ontario étaient assex beaux aussi. A happy-go-lucky film that gave me the chance to work with designer Marian Wihak. Sadly, they didn’t need the Canadian art department crew for the parts filmed in … Continue reading Love Jacked

The Stolen Movie

Counting down to the premiere on November 2nd, it’s exciting to see more and more images appearing on the website and facebook page. I admit the actors are very attractive, but LOOK AT THE SETS! Dans l’attente de la première en 2 novembre, il est passionant de voir de plus en plus d’images sur le site et la page facebook. J’avoue que les acteurs sont très … Continue reading The Stolen Movie

Winter! L’hiver!

At last I’ve been initiated into “real” Canadian winter shooting conditions. I was props assistant on a crime reenactment drama, shooting outdoors at -20 degrees Celsius. I particularly enjoyed the alcohol-free beer that froze before I could pour it. J’ai été enfin initié à la “vrai” experience du tournage Canadien. J’étais adjointe à l’accessoiriste pour une émission qui montre les reconstitutions des crimes. Nous avons tourné en plein … Continue reading Winter! L’hiver!

Jean of the Joneses (4 months late)

J of the Js was my introduction to the Canadian film industry (if you mercifully disregard set dressing for Hallmark Channel Christmas movies). It was the first time I worked with courageous production designer Helen Kotsonis, dashing art director Ashley Devereux and magnificent set dec … Continue reading Jean of the Joneses (4 months late)

Festival time for Hats

Gabriel Foster Prior’s brainchild A Short Film About Hats premiered a couple of days ago in Portugal at FEST | New Directors Festival. I had a ball as Production Designer 2nd Unit on this film back in London in 2013. It’s one of the most imaginative projects I’ve worked on. Its next screening will be as an official selection for Lisbon International Film Festival, with hopefully a run … Continue reading Festival time for Hats

I heart Toronto

I relocated to Toronto about 10 weeks ago and have to congratulate myself on a brilliant choice of city. So far I’ve been set dresser on a Hallmark Christmas movie (yes, every bit as cheesy as it sounds), on set props/set dresser for a charming little indie short, and set dresser for an indie feature with a gobsmacking art department crew. Plus, one of the … Continue reading I heart Toronto
