Press for Shooting the Moon

CBC  

"[Shooting the Moon] tackles the distinctly Montreal problem of being an Anglophone breaking into the Quebec film industry... the comedy is as personal as it is absurd."        - Leah Collins, CBC

Indie Wire - Women and Hollywood

"Bold... Honest... Offering an abundance of dry laughs, and "Oh my gosh that's happened to me" moments." - Eboni Boykin, Women and Hollywood

The Link

"Brilliant... Glorious... Visually Stunning ... The web series presents a refreshingly quirky and perfectly awkward take on post-grad life ...The bad news: it's only an hour long, and will leave you wanting more." - Ocean DeRouchie, The Link

PTBO Canada

"One can imagine this show not only building more momentum online in future seasons, but being picked up by traditional cable TV somewhere down the road, or Netflix." - Neil Morton, PTBO Canada

Shooting the Moon is an Official Selection at the 2016 NYC WebFest

ADDITIONAL PRAISE FOR SHOOTING THE MOON

"Shooting the Moon is bursting with subtle, self-deprecating humour and enjoyably awkward authenticity. It cleverly and lovingly lampoons the unglamorous life of an internship-chasing, Craigslist-surfing film grad - a brilliant send up of modern millennial life." - Luc Rinaldi, Toronto Life 

"A fun watch and something anyone who has graduated from film school or with a fine arts degree can relate to!" - Martin Baena, Hand Crafted Cinema 

"Shooting the Moon is wonderful! I loved every bit of it!...There is one negative thing. The names in the credits run so darn fast, just like they do in the theatres." - A friend's grandmother
