Re: Effect of the Coronavirus

Hey Catcon,

We were just talking about Canada this weekend. You guys have a ton of movies (TV series/features/MOW) being shot up there.

Any disruption to those projects that you've heard of?

Re: What's the scene like now?

Re: "... that has either a genre element..."
