The Rick Mercer Report in 48 hrs!!
Hey Guys what a crazy last 2 days. So I get a call from Rick Mercer's people Tuesday afternoon saying they just wrote a skit about the Liberal party backing down to the Tories. The whole joke is that the Liberals are loving it cause if they fight the Tories they have to call an election and they are in no position to win an election so they are happy to back down. It's an over the top party scene. They say they want the works, full 24pc choir, break-dancers, jugglers, acrobats, pyro a total circus!! They want to know if I can compose, arrange and record a choir to the lyrics they wrote and have it ready to be shot in 48hrs. Well I immediately got on the phone to Faith Chorale and booked them for a session the next day. I called up Luther Brown at Do Dat for some breakers and got to work banging out a track. Everything got together just in time for the shoot. As I go to deliver the music masters, Rick decides that he wants me in the skit leading the choir. They rush me into wardrobe, I'm a little fuller than most guys so no suits fit. They take my measurements and in an hour a suit arrives and I'm on set shooting the scene for the next 4 hours. I love this business!!!
