That was my first time using the quick photo feature. Right now I’ve got, well a decent supply of coffee and a 300 page notebook and a bass which is pretty well perfect. I have considered bringing a coffee maker in here too but as Cece is also in here I’m not sure her feelings on me brewing in here at 6am. I could sneak in a Bodum perhaps.
Today we have the Emma and Mandy table read which I’m very excited to get into. With the main shoot for the demo/pilot coming up it will be great to start working one on one with the cast again. With recent events of course things have not been easy. Wolf was not only a great cast member and someone who got our dream and our idea straight away but he was also my Cece’s beloved cousin. We will be doing a tribute to him in the Ollie and Emma WordPress site early next week when we have time to focus on it properly.
I’ve also been working on a new blog story idea that comes from my own background of working in Victoria and living in James Bay where all the big hotels are situated. It’s called Closer to Heaven and it’s a romance set here in working class Victoria, BC. Our city is perfect for that, which I know any local anywhere would say but we are set on the ocean and one of Victoria’s quirks is, thinking of my mention of James Bay, the number of little mini towns within Greater Victoria and how, as I mentioned, the very rich and others can not only live close by but even right next door. This also leads to all kinds of exchanges and therfore story possibilities.
Cookeilidh is also starting up our festival season which is looking to be really busy! After such a supportive crowd at The Highland Games our next show is June 7th at World Ocean Day in Sidney, right down by the water. Moving here almost 30 years ago now from the Mainland to Saanichton it’s great to play only a few blocks away from where I got my first bass!
