I know, I'm like a Golden retriever - I was all focused on festival blogging when suddenly the ball of North American distribution is dangled in my face. Irresistible! I am doing a sharp left turn, top speed, to talk about that, but I promise to come back to the long overdue Tales from the Festival Circuit.
Avi was running a Vinnie Jones film called Hollywood Flies, and once I'd found him all the Vegas/Mojave Desert stand-ins the prairies could give me, he gave me another job, as his assistant Production Manager, despite the fact that I was only four years old.
I learned a ton from Avi on that set, skills that I carried all the way to The Wasting.
I also made a great friend in Avi, and it's absolutely awesome to have him in our corner.
Avi works diligently for every movie he distributes, because he's a true believer in indie film - he loves indie film - and he backs up his words with actions.
We could not ask for a better person or company to come on board.
I'm the writer-director and more or less the mother of this film.
