The Will Has Landed...(in Banff)

Basically pulled into town and headed right into the opening reception hosted by the CBC...saw a lot of familiar faces and said my hello's...enjoyed a late dinner with Super Channel's Dave Proc and Vancouver writer (Little) Ricky Drew, caught up with prairie producers Stephen Onda and Kevin DeWalt, touched base with Sanctuary producer/director Martin Wood, and ended evening with a quick walk through the St James Pub with formerly of Toronto but now in Vancouver writer/producer Larry Raskin.

And not a lot to report except to say every year at Banff there seems to be more and more of the TV Network Execs, and Telefilm/CTF/Provincial Film Agency heads and staffers, and Lawyers, and Guild and Union reps...and fewer and fewer of the writers, directors, and producers...you know, the creative types.

It must mean something, but not sure what...yet.

Will sleep on it and see what the morning brings.

Hi, Will.

An...Banff. Haven't been there in years. Would like to go again.

Looking forward to seeing "Sanctuary" on TV this fall. If you see Martin Wood again, let him know fans are waiting...and not so patiently!

Hope you enjoy your Banff film festival '08.

Best wishes, Morjana

I heard from a sports caster friend of mine that CTV/TSN bought the hockey night in Canada theme. I haven't seen official word yet but I am sure he is not far off seems how its his job.

Yeah M...it's true.

Didn't speak again to Wood, morjana...but they are shooting and you won't have to wait patiently for too much longer.
