We pitched to the folks at Telefilm last Thursday. And we're heading to SODEC to do the same thing this afternoon. I haven't taken my Dolly shirt off all weekend.
Hope it's a large boardroom. With lots of windows.
In all seriousness, I am slightly superstitious. And since I am (so far) incapable of growing a play-off beard, I will be wearing the same outfit to defend the project at SODEC as I wore to Telefilm.
Not that I know for sure if Dolly's image on my chest brought us any luck at last Thursday's pitch or not. We'll only find that out when Telefilm announces its decision sometime in June. But the vintage Dolly t-shirt at least made a hit with the analysts - all women - on the Telefilm jury. They all said they'd buy one for themselves - and the teenage girls they know. So, if ever this filmmaking thing doesn't pan out, I guess I could always take up t-shirt merchandizing...
But wait - what am I saying? Knock on wood, throw salt, spit to the North three times - and hear this, Universe - until you tell me otherwise - IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS, I am sticking with the filmmaker thing!
Oh, and P.S.: As of late last week, we have two Very Interesting People very interested in being in the film!! Can't name any names just yet, but stay tuned...!
