Grateful we should be every day for being so fortunate to be doing what we do, and we usually are. But on a day like today, Thanksgiving, we would like to salute and thank the artists that we work with. Thank you for your trust and confidence. The year started with Roger Waters and continued with Alt-J, Grouplove, Cyndi Lauper, Nile Rodgers, Valerie Simpson, The Goo Goo Dolls, Tom ODell, Dream Theater, Opéra de Montréal, John Hiatt, Counting Crows, The Midtown Men, Here Come The Mummies, Joe Satriani, Paul Rodgers, Richard Thompson, Dierks Bentley, Lady Antebellum, The Fray, Keith Urban, Richie Sambora, Jimi Hazel, Trey Anastasio, Carlos Santana, Harry Belafonte, John Mellencamp, Maia Davies and most recently, Geddy Lee. Next week, we’ll be filming Martina McBride, Sara Evans, Hunter Hayes, Bob DiPiero and Little Big Town. What a year it has been. And what a year to look forward to…
We wish to thank our wonderful production crew and all the creative contributors that work with us. We wish to thank the executive producers at Front and Center, most especially Don Maggi and Denis Gallagher for a wonderful year with Front and Center and Speakeasy. Thanks to everyone at and with Front and Center. Thank you to everyone at public television supporting our two series.
Wishing everyone near and far a wonderful holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving.

Post-production has started on our production of Moulin Rouge – The Ballet. Filmed at Centennial Concert Hall in Winnipeg on July 18th, this was a particularly challenging film to direct. We had the wonderful opportunity to work closely with choreographer Jorden Morris who is also the creator of the Moulin Rouge ballet. Our film editor is Yves Dion who also edited “Flamenco Hoy de Carlos Saura”. The film of Moulin Rouge The Ballet will be released in cinemas worldwide in February 2014.
