Acting, Directing and Producing over the years:
Update on "The Bride Price", our documentary about forced marriage in Malawi, Africa. Due to some pre-production snags and scheduling conflicts, we have decided to postpone our trip to Africa until early 2019. Fundraising is taking much longer than anticipated and there is still a lot to be done in Malawi to prepare. The good news is that we have brought in roughly $19,500 from three fundraisers, donations and sponsorships with more gifts promised and grant decisions pending. We have launched an indiegogo campaign (link below) and are now looking at additional pre-production grants that were not a good match for us timewise until now. We are also looking at additional press and television/radio interviews. We've had some great press already (click here to read).

In acting news, it's been all voice-over lately, with a cute radio spot as a wise-acre wife and a French language v/o for Canadian television. Some other news about season three of Real Mommy Confessions concerning funding but no dates yet. My guess is mid to late-2019 but we shall see if my crystal ball is correct when the time comes!
