Winnipeg Jets FanFest

IMG_5158I was in line early Saturday morning, Sept 20, at the MTS IcePlex along with a couple thousand other Winnipeg Jets fans to take in the first public training camp sessions. It was a great day at the inaugural FanFest great!  Dennis Beyak, TSN3 play-by-play announcer,  was delivering some great interviews on the main stage with Andrew Ladd, Mark Stuart and others.

Next weekend, I’ll be on deck with a few player interviews of my own at the MTS Centre for the film.  Can’t wait!


Gave us an interview on their wedding day!

Grant (Dir of Photography) and I started out our Saturday at the University of Manitoba to revisit where my curiosity with people’s use of “Oh my God” first began.  Then we headed to the Legislative Buildings.  At the Legislature we came upon a wedding party photo session and were able to “crash” the event (with permission).OMG_Wedding 3

We ended up interviewing the bride and groom an hour before their wedding ceremony.  Their wedding car was a beautiful 1963 Ford!  What do you think they said when we asked them about the last time they said “Oh my God”?!  Thanks to the happy couple for being so generous with us!


Can’t wait to get this interview into the film.  Spent the rest of the day all over the city talking to Winnipeggers.
