TWO NEW EPISODES OF BABES RELEASED ON YOUTUBE!
This past August, we filmed two new episodes of Babes, which have just been released on our YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/babeswebseries). We think they are some of our best yet! While the first season of Babes was filmed all in one week and released over the course of two months this past summer, we're approaching the second season a little differently: so far, we've just filmed two episodes, and we will soon begin pre-production on more. We're looking forward to sharing some more episodes at some point in 2017. We truly appreciate all the likes, shares and views from this fantastic community!

ATLANTIC TALENT CASTING AGENCY CLOSES
After much thought and agonizing Atlantic Talent is closing after thirteen years. It was a very hard decision to make but it was the best one to make at this time according to the owners, Gary and Nancy. Atlantic Talent filled an important need in the Maritimes and Gary and Nancy will be missed. http://www.atlantictalent.ca/home.html

Former Black Panther, Abu-Jamal, an internationally celebrated black writer and radio journalist, was arrested the day Francome was born. William is now 25 years old. Mumia is still on death row.
There will be an optional discussion after the film. Everyone welcome. Films are free but donations welcome.
