A TEAM OF CREATIVE PEOPLE DOING CREATIVE THINGS
In March 2020 the pandemic struck, ushering in a tide of nationwide lockdowns, economic slowdowns, and civil throwdowns.
Canada lost almost 2,000,000 jobs in April alone, and the entertainment industry all but vanished overnight, leaving so many working professionals with serious concerns over when our livelihood might return. Some of us even wound up homeless.
Flash forward to Fall 2020: a plan is formed by a collective of such artists, (henceforth known as Chez Poulet Productions), in an attempt to keep working & providing. But how to adapt to a now entirely digital medium? What to create in order to keep entertaining audiences? How can we remind ourselves and each other to keep fighting for a better tomorrow?
