March 31, 2013: OK, getting a little itchy. Just 1 or 2 minor tweaks left and we’ll release the first demo – a 1:15 teaser that will be our ‘calling card’ – THIS TUESDAY! Have watched it, oh, a few times now … Right. On to the proper demo!
March 25, 2013: Nearly there… Rough cut of the first teaser is in the works, as is a ‘proper’ website – oh wait; that’s this site! Huge thanks to all of those who contributed time and skills to filming our shoestring demo this month!
Feb 26, 2013: Booked it! Off to shoot our demo in Montreal (a historic immigration success story, and a location that won’t break our infant bank…) and an interview with author Doug Saunders. Clips to follow in March, demo by April.
Feb 19, 2013: First seed money (yay!) and our first Canadian broadcast license! Hello tax credits…
Feb 8, 2013: A little over a month into the project, SCETV / PBS, the American public network, commits to airing Arrival City – we have our first broadcaster!
