Born to be on the Big Screen

OK, here goes. On August 25, 2007 I received an email from Alison Reid. She said that she had a movie that was entirely shot but needed to be finished. Michelle Marion, a production executive at TMN (The Movie Network) in Toronto recommended that Ali contact me. Honoured that Michelle had such faith in me, I met with Ali. I watched some footage and got hooked on the performances, the look, the charm and Ali’s vision and dedication.

Super Channel and Telefilm Canada believed in her as well and they backed us up with their wallets. A dedicated group of artisans and technicians worked very hard for very little and proved once again that true talent can trump commerce. With the help of her team, Ali carved it all into 80 minutes that will make you laugh and.. if you’re not careful.. make you cry.

Coincidentally – exactly one year after Ali’s very first email to me – on August 25, 2008 THE BABY FORMULA will premiere In Competition at the Montreal World Film Festival.

So, be sure to check out one of our screenings if you are in Montreal. If not, we’ve been invited to more film festivals, so check back here at our blog for updates and video clips from the film.

Congrats Ali – you delivered.
