Have, too many people to say thank you too so, I won't bore all of you guys at home by, naming them out right now instead, I'll bore them individually, as I meet them because they know who they are and I love them very much I, need. To say that representation. Matters. I think. A show like Kim's convenience, is proof that representation. Matters because, when communities, and people, see themselves reflected up, on the screens it is an inspiring, and a very powerful moment for them because, it means they've moved from the margins, into. The forefront and it, gives them a voice and it, gives them hope and hope. Is a very empowering. Thing because it inspires, people and when. You give people a voice other people, start listening, and, when people start listening things start, to change and, we, need change we, need to affect change and that, there's this little button here it, means a lot and better. People than I can speak more, to it than I will but it's time for all of us to listen as well I just, want to say thank you to the Academy, thank you to my Kim's family my, caste my mom my, dad my sister my wife no, miles at home you, can start playing video games now so.

Present the Donald written award, for social political documentary. Program presented by the Rogers group of funds as indigenous, producers, ourselves. Lisa and I both, understand, the power of stories stories, can be used as a weapon but they can also be used to build bridges between people between. Nations, and if, harnessed in a good way stories can inspire and power change, minds and motivate, all of us to be better right. It. Is a time for all of us to stand up and challenge the headlines, and the. Stereotypes. And the inequality. Faced by indigenous people we, must recognize that our indigenous community, is filled with gifted, funning. Interesting. Canadians, with great stories to share and some of the best untapped, talent, around we. All face challenges, in our lives for which mean we all we all must be individual, accounted, for and we, must all work together as, an industry and, as Canadians, to rise above the mistakes of our shared history and to, write a news, story where, we can all thrive together.

Shooting schedules, being so tight sometimes movies, have to film two scenes at the same time the, second unit director leads, their own crew, handling, things like action, sequences, close-ups, and inserts the key is to make sure every, shot can cut seamlessly. Into the footage the film's director is shooting essentially. Cutting their workload in half while, maintaining the, quality and tone. He's. Good. Can I get a second, unit host, mama. Needs a manicure. You. The. Nominees, for Best Lead Actress drama, series are, Amy. It's. All going to hell now. Our.

You daunted it at all to take on this novel I was extremely daunted, yeah I mean it took a really long time it was the hardest thing I've ever had, or, written partly, because I love the novels so much and you don't want to fail the novel at.

What happened when they got wet they, multiplied, right the. Assistant director or ad is the gremlin, of the film set with some movies having as many as four or more involved, but each one has a very specific role. Generally. If you hear someone yelling on a film set that's the first ad their. Job is to manage the set for the director making sure they stay on schedule it's, super. Stressful because it's up to the ad to get the crew to keep calm yet, hurry up and of course hurry up and wait, the. Second ad is the first right hand telling the crew when and where to arrive for the next scene and getting, the actors through makeup and wardrobe, the, third ad s job is to help out the first and second ad I'm, guessing, mostly with backrubs and occasional foot massages, I'm. Carrying. That there are no back rubs what's. The point then. You. The, following program is a live broadcast and may contain coarse language viewer discretion is advised.
