SABS 7th Birthday Salute for July 27th from Michael Melski

Posted: July 27, 2017

We're hooked on this #SABS7 Salute!!!

That's because it comes to us from award winning writer and director of stage and screen - Cape Breton's own Michael Melski

Enter his name and you'll be eligible to WIN a just issued, official FIN ball hat as our daily prize for July 27th, 2017 and qualify for our HEAVENLY STAY grand prize draw.

We love this #SABS7 Melski Salute for 2 reasons...

#1. It was taken at one of his favourite places on the planet - the banks of the Margaree River on Cape Breton Island

#2. It ensures the man is getting in just a smidge of R & R before festival season!

We know he's been flat out for a long time now - going from his award winning documentary PERFUME WAR into production on his forthcoming horror THE CHILD REMAINS, and as we understand it - things are about to ramp up.

As we reported THE CHILD REMAINS made it's world premiere in China last month and Mr.Melski tells me more amazing news is coming on August 16th.  We can't wait to hear it!  Be sure to follow @TheChildRemains for news when it breaks - and naturally we'll keep you posted too!

Michael's also in the midst of fostering new filmmakers through the FIN: SCRIPT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM.  It's an incredible opportunity for the 4 film finalists to attended three intensive weekend sessions under the guidance of Melski - with the focus on both writing and pitching their movies.

Then in September during the 37th FIN: Atlantic International Film Festival, they'll pitch their feature film idea to a room of industry professionals with the aim of attaching a producer and/or director to the projects and to compete for the $10,000 development prize.

You can read more about the program and this year's finalists here.

Rest assured the man is always up to something creative!  Even when he's fishing!!!

Thanks so much for always making the time for us Mr.Melski - we're thrilled to have you play such a wonderful part of the SEA AND BE SCENE story... and thanks for this amazing #SABS7 Salute! You're the very finest kind sir! SABS
