What a day. I had wanted to interview the people that worked with Dad at the NFB in those first few years. We managed to pull together a round table with some of the biggest names in the Canadian film industry; Michael Spencer, Pierre Juneau, Bob Verrall, William Weintraub, and Colin Low.
It was a very long, exhausting afternoon but extremely interesting. These people made the Canadian film and television industry what it is today. Their stories were wonderful and they gave me some really great insight into what was going on at the Film Board during the early years – one part of my Dad’s history that is still cloudy.
We got back to Toronto around 3 AM for a weekend of rest before some bigger traveling next week.
