Toronto Film Festival in 120 Seconds

Posted on November 7, 2008

This is a little montage of the video clips I shot while at TIFF.

The people we’re having dinner with at the end (divided by the drinking straw) are Cherie Saulter and Justin Barber, both Film School alumni who produced “Medicine for Melancholy,” directed by another Film School alum, Barry Jenkins, and nominated for a Gotham Award.

And yes, I did screw up in setting a meeting place with an industry person. Apparently The International Intercontinental is a very popular hotel name.
