Prime Time in Ottawa - Day Three

We won!  Our short film “The Date” was announced during the main presentation today as the First Place winner of the REELchallenge. 

It was a fantastic opportunity and a great experience to be invited to take part in the Prime Time Conference in Ottawa.

Today’s focus shifted to the role films play in Canada’s media industry.  The main topics concerned the relationship between film production and broadcasters within Canada.  Although, once again, the afternoon was overshadowed by the Olympic showdown between Canada and the USA men’s hockey teams.

Apologies USA.

Many thanks to everyone who helped on our short film.  We could not have done it without your support and generous contributions.  From myself and all of us at Second Spark, THANK YOU!

I’ll see you all back in Vancouver soon.
