Here’s a quick, on the move post. Didn’t see any movies yesterday, but it was still a great day. We met the donor that sponsored our trip at her gorgeous house and garden right in the middle of Toronto.

After chilling in the industry internet lounge and grabbing some free Starbucks, all five of us went to a meeting with Vinca Jarrett, an entertainment lawyer, on behalf of Paul. What we thought would be a quick meet and greet turned out to be a 4 hour crash course in the legal side of independent filmmaking. This was stuff we’ve never covered in school but should know before we make the mistakes she encounters all the time (I’ll do a post with some of her tips).

I think she was equally as fascinated and amused with how young we are, and it was great that she was able to give us that much time.

About to run to go meet with the filmmakers of Pubic Lice, and then I’m seeing movies! More Than a Game, Last Stop 174, and Blood Trail.
