It’s been a while since I last posted any blog post on my website.
My wife Val told me, “…if you are going to write a blog Bill, then it needs to be a topic that someone can either learn from, or be inspired by.” Good advice dear….!
After doing some updates to my website, I thought that I should write a few new blog posts and bring things up to date on some of the projects I have been working on.
So what has happened in the last year?
Well…! Aside from adopting an amazing 7 year old boy that I am proud to call my son, here are a few of my latest project updates…
‘Living Proof’ Directed by Matt Embry
Matt and the team have worked very hard over the last year in continuing to promote the film to viewers around the world. Since the film’s premier at TIFF in 2017, it has since been shown at the Calgary International Film Festival, and has gone on to play to sold-out audiences in selected cinemas throughout the world.
The film has now been released on DVD, and is in digital format on Apple iTunes, Vimeo and Google Play. It has also recently been made available ‘free’ on Amazon Prime.
“Living Proof” earned several awards at this year’s AMPIA Awards. I was honored to have been nominated for ‘Best Original Score’.
As more people hear of Living Proof, there are requests for it to be shown and promoted in other cities, towns and countries.
Matt and the team continue to update their Facebook page on a regular basis. If you want to hear more, please click on the link below.
I would like to wish Matt, his family and friends, and everyone at Spotlight Productions all the very best of continued success with this film. I am so proud I was able to be a part of this incredible story, and to witness the impact it is having on so many people around the world.
It is not often you get to have an opportunity like this to truly make a positive impact on someone’s life.
‘The Secret Marathon’ Directed by Scott Townend & Kate McKenzie
Scott, Kate and Martin have been busy promoting awareness for “The Secret Marathon” and the message around women deserving the freedom to run. The producers organized numerous fund raising events for the film to help raise the necessary budget to complete the film.
One very successful event was ‘The Secret Marathon 3K Run’, sponsored by The Running Room, which was held on March 7th 2018, on the eve of International Women’s Day.
Please click the link below for more details:
This event was held in over 10 Canadian cities including Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto, bringing awareness for the right for women to run without fear for their safety. This reminds us that there are still places in the world where women are not permitted to run and how a community in Afghanistan is courageously carving out a new way forward for the next generation of women.
I truly look forward to working with the Producers Scott Townend, Kate McKenzie and Martin Parnell, in completing this film. The film is due for release in 2019.
