I’m happy to announce that I’ve booked my first job since moving to Toronto which was just shot today – a D’Italiano print campaign for a contest to win a Vespa Scooter. The ad will feature Edith Camirand and I on a Vespa (as seen in the behind the scenes pictures), and was shot by Avner Levona.
I gotta start by saying everyone was great to work with! Avner and his team of assistants, the art director, wardrobe and make up artist, the clients and Edith were all easy going and professional. I even had the chance to reminisce about my trip to Taiwan, since the make up artist grew up there! All in all, I had a good time, and met a lot of great people, which I hope to see and work with in the future. Some are also interested, and/or working in film and TV as well, so I’ll have even better chances to run into them again!
Now going back to just a couple of days ago, I was interviewed by Sara Koonar and her friend Jill, for a school project in their Journalism program. Conducted in my Toronto apartment, they asked me about my role as the lead male in 2@2. Sara’s actually a friend of mine, who I met years ago back home in the Ottawa-Gatineau region. She has also moved to Toronto to further her career! Anyway, I had fun and was happy and flattered to be the subject of their interview! I’ll make sure to provide a link if it ends up online!
