My dear old friend Kate Melville, a brilliant Canadian playwright and TV writer, has just gotten her first feature film, and she's looking for cheap locations in Toronto
: "We are a small, courteous, professional crew trying to make the best movie we can and your consideration would be greatly appreciated. We are in search of the following settings, in the Greater Toronto Area - the closer to downtown the better:
A HOUSE: A family home, mid- to up-scale. We're looking for a main floor (living room, kitchen, maybe a dining room) and a basement we could dress as a teenaged boy's bedroom. We are scheduled for 4 days of shooting in this location.
A WAREHOUSE/LOFT: Low-rent, down-scale. The more industrial looking the better, preferably with large, open spaces and little privacy. We are scheduled to shoot for 1 day in this location.
AN APARTMENT/CO-OP UNIT: Down-scale, run-down (we could dress it to look right). We're looking for the main floor, primarily the living room, and one bedroom. We are shooting for 1 day in this location.
Please, please, please call (416.473.2545) if you have, or know of, any place that could remotely fit one of the above locations.

Custom coffee vessels are the perfect piece of office flair, but it’s just a matter of time before your VOTE FOR PEDRO mug will start to lose its relevant wit. Why not have a new one every day, with whatever silly nonsense you want sticking off the sides? You can save big on your novelty […]
