Day One at Locations

It’s a small space where competing destinations are pit against one another to woo Hollywood productions. Not unlike any other cattle call, I guess. For me, it’s like a reunion of sorts πŸ™‚ I get to meet up with some real nice people who I only see twice a year, catch up on what’s happening in their location and realise all over again how much a people business the media business is. Hmmm … there any business that isn’t?

Anywho, after 2 hours of getting wires organised and figuring out where to put what, here’s what we put together.

Quite nice, huh? On another note, when I come to the USA, I’m never surprised that someone I’m speaking to has no idea where Singapore is. It’s common for people to think we’re part of Hong Kong, a province in China, off the island of Taiwan. Sure, I’ve heard them all but today this guy has to take the cake.

The Guy: So Singapore is in South East Asia, can I take a ferry from Sri Lanka then?
Me: A ferry to Singapore?
Guy nods.
Me: You want to take a ferry from Sri Lanka to Singapore?
Guy: It’s not that far from each other, right? Isn’t South East Asia like a 30minute ferry ride from South Asia?

At least he didn’t think we were landlocked into each other.
