It’s Essential To Mix It Up With Other Countries
“The film board, I should give credit to them. The filmmakers assistants program was an opportunity for somebody who didn’t do film school, like me, without that program. Those post-production in-kind funds really enabled me to explore, make mistakes, and learn through the process. Where, maybe it would have been a bit different going right into hardcore industry, where a mistake means that you’re gone, you’re off the set.
I had that kind of latitude, which I think was essential to my growth. Our work has gone to Ireland, it’s gone to Netherlands, France, Germany, the States, across Canada. It’s essential to mix it up with other countries, as I was saying before.”
