Rob chats with Canada AM about the "crazy" story

If you didn't catch the show live yesterday, here's Rob's morning chat with Bev Thomson on national broadcaster CTV's Canada AM.

Bev calls it a "crazy" story and she's right! Another high-profile media person who just happened to head up Canada's national public broadcaster said of our film, "I love quirky stories of Canadians abroad." But the dear old pubcaster itself took a pass on our project. Such is the great risk attached to little indie projects like ours. And so, it makes us proud to say that our "little indie film that could" is garnering great reviews and international coverage, and audiences have really connected with the story. And we're not stopping there! Domestic distributor Indiecan Entertainment, headed by tireless indie film crusader Avi Federgreen, is working really hard with yours truly to get this film seen by as many Canadians as possible. Next stop, the world! Stay tuned for more details on worldwide releases.
