“Last night I had one of the best premieres of my career, a night any filmmaker dreams of.” is how John Zaritsky describes his feelings about the world premiere of A DIFFERENT DRUMMER: CELEBRATING ECCENTRICS at the Vancouver International Film Festival. John shared the stage with Laura-Kay Prophet who is Vancouver’s Duck Lady and one of the eccentrics in the film. Laura-Kay is accompanied by her best friend “Bobby V”, now a full grown duck that she first met and fell in love with as a cute one-day old duckling. That meeting is a scene in the film and is one of the most moving moments.
The whole evening was a joyous occasion for all and for Bobby V too! Please check out John Zaritsky’s comments about filming with Laura-Kay. Our thanks go out to Adam P.W. Smith for filming and sharing the event with us.
