My adventure as Cultural Producer at The Screening Room for their fall/winter season is nearly up! 5 months zipped by and VOILA here we are in February. Many thanks to Wendy Huot for inviting me on the adventure. I had a lot of fun enhancing their cult film series with interactive events and live music, trivia and other tomfoolery - harkening back to my Soiro Bizarro days in Montréal. One of the many highlights for me during my time at this independent arthouse cinema was writing a radio jingle for airplay on CFRC 101.9fm. This jingle then became the soundtrack for a pre-show video montage by local filmmaker Joe Elliott! I hope you enjoy and get thee to an independent cinema with authentic theatre popcorn (REAL BUTTER) - one of the unique joys of urban life!
