As you may have noted in the clickable headline over <<<<<<<thataway<<<<<< Indiecan Entertainment has acquired my directorial debut The Wasting for North America. This pleases me!
Indiecan chief Avi Federgreen and I go back a loooong way, to when I was a mere child of two, and he hired me to find film locations in Saskatchewan that could double for Las Vegas. (Important to note here that Saskatchewan is the Canadian version of Kansas.)
Avi was running a Vinnie Jones film called Hollywood Flies, and once I'd found him all the Vegas/Mojave Desert stand-ins the prairies could give me, he gave me another job, as his assistant Production Manager, despite the fact that I was only four years old. I learned a ton from Avi on that set, skills that I carried all the way to The Wasting. I also made a great friend in Avi, and it's absolutely awesome to have him in our corner. Avi works diligently for every movie he distributes, because he's a true believer in indie film - he loves indie film - and he backs up his words with actions. We could not ask for a better person or company to come on board.
