Duck-Duck-Goose & Div, the Golf Ball

Announcing a BIG and AMAZING step on our journey to finishing my very first feature film, One Night in Seattle and getting it done in time for Sundance!! Woot!!

Duck Duck Goose

When I was young, I used to play this game “Duck, Duck, Goose.” No, I’m not talking some strange off shoot of the film Top Gun and Beach Volleyball, but I am talking about how a game I played in school oddly relates to our film’s journey!

Playing with the boys and choosing who is going to be running around with me at my side, in this race around the final stage to finish the film in time for Sundance, has landed us a Duck instead of a Goose in a game and I am excited to start playing!

Brian Schecter of Puddleduck Productions, has come on board as a Producer, Advisor and Post Production Supervisor of our film, One Night in Seattle.

Brian comes on board with 35 years experience. Puddle Duck Productions is a multi-media production company serving clients in both Canada and the U.S. and abroad. Clients include all major North American networks such as the CBC/SRC, CTV/TVA, TSN/RDS, SportsNet, Canwest Global, and TQS in Canada as well as NBC, ABC, ESPN, Fox Sports, CBS, TWI, Disney, PBS and Kagan Research in the United States.

How I met Brian. 

Div, the Golf Ball

I met Brian dancing around a fire pit at the Banff World Television Festival. It was the one of the festivals outdoor parties, the theme was ‘cowboy-cowpoke-wildwest-something’, and I was celebrating winning the CTV National Fellowship at the Banff World Television Festival for my Dakar Rally project.

I was wearing a straw cowboy hat and NOT pitching my documentary, but rather was quite lost in my telling of an animated world I had created about Div, a young Range Ball that dreamed of playing out on the fabled Greens that whispered his name at the far edges of his dead end life in the driving range world he was born into.Brian fell in love with Div’s world and needless to say, a friendship formed…. and a few stories launched that day from the Golf Tourney…

Yes, we both played in the Festival’s golf tourney, where I almost drove the golf cart AND the very important CAVCO guy in my cart, off road over a mini-mound and into the grand bow river below. A story that circled the festival faster than I could floor the golf cart…

And yes, I made a little video of that day in Banff here –> VIP’s & Me Tee off in Banff 

Brian has been in my circle of mentors/advisors for 4 years, and now, we finally get to work together. I am proud to be able to share this film with him and welcome Brian, to the film and producer team! Exactly how I want to finish this film – with my friends and family.

Happy Film Girl & celebrations ahead! Woot!! RallyUP and Get your ROAD-TRIP ON!! We are on our way to Sundance!! Join us on Kickstarter – only 3 days left to join the TEAM –>  One Night in Seattle & The Race to Sundance

Hugs and Love,

Shawna

What does a Kitty, a Duck, Tacos & Cowtown have in common?

Well it’s been a CRAZY week both on AND off the Kickstarter Campaign for One Night in Seattle!

All over the map, not getting lost but rather, finding our way into the home stretch and wrangling an AWESOME team in the middle of it all!

So what DOES a Kitty, a Duck, Tacos & Cowtown have in common?

  • a journey
  • a film
  • a dream coming true

The Kitty

Acoustikitty is Arran Fisher’s recording operation, based out of Calgary, Canada. Arran is on board, crafting an ORIGINAL SOUND and MUSIC SCORE for One Night in Seattle. This is not the first time Arran’s music will be a part of an iDream Films Production. The first one wasn’t planned, it was happen-chance. This second one, was much the same. I walked into a cafe, and… well, as per the film and my life, interesting things tend happen when you walk into a cafe, destiny kinda takes the lead if you are open and willing…

I met Arran way back while I was writing the film into the wee hours of the night at Cafe Beano in Calgary. Arran was working as a barrista to pay the bills and make his music. In 1999, Arran formed the psych rock group The Summerlad, which toured several times across Canada and the U.S., released four albums, and received national acclaim for making music that defied easy categorization.

The Summerlad on CBC Radio 3 

Oddly enough, when I was filming my Dakar Rally Project, Mark from CBC Radio 3 Vancouver, gave me a playlist with some selected artists and The Summerlad’s ‘City of Noise’ track was among the selections. I picked it without hesitation and only after did I realize this was Arran’s band from back in Calgary. What are the odds?

Well, in May, I went back to Calgary and back to Beano and guess who was sitting there, on the other side of the barrista bar. We re-connected after 5 years, both having been on quite the journey chasing our own passions of producing and media and all it took me was to mention how I was looking for an original soundtrack that would be inspired by how the soundtrack in the critically acclaimed film, Deadmanwas crafted (Neil Young composed the guitar seeped soundtrack with portions he improvised while watching the movie footage).

City of Noise, by The Summerlad on YouTube

Deadman on Wiki

Seems every iDream Film project needs it’s Acoustic Kitty. This will be the second film project of mine that will feature Arran’s talents.

More about the Duck, Tacos and Cowtown coming up!! Woot!

  • Brian Schecter, media sports business analyst with Puddle Duck Productions, based out of Vancouver, Canada.
  • Chronic Tacos in Gastown is a 2 story Mexican Cantina with amazing eats, mexi-drinks and even late night spinning and skeleton dancing…
  • Word is, a SUNDANCE PRODUCER PASS ($10,000 pledge level) could be pledged on Monday, from my hometown, Calgary, Canada.

Back soon for UPDATES!! WOOT!
