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
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!
Toronto International Film Festival is about to open, and this time I worked on one of the films! It’s going to be a treat to see Jean of the Joneses on the big screen in my hometown. Here’s the festival information. If you’re in Toronto take the opportunity to see this special film. Continue reading TIFF Time

Its next screening will be as an official selection for Lisbon International Film Festival, with hopefully a run … Continue reading Festival time for Hats
My darling feature film Solitary is screening in New York next month! Since its premiere in Jan 2015 the film has been popping up in festivals all over the place, but I’m pretty sure this is its NYC debut. It will screen on March 14th as part of Chelsea Film Festival’s KINO & VINO series. There’ll be a Q&A with filmmakers afterwards, followed by a cocktail reception … Continue reading Solitary in New York
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
