Just as she does every year at this time, Sandra Piha, our fab director of international sales (plus rights and clearances), has packed her things and jetted to Cannes to attend the International Television Programme Market. Essentially, MIPTV is a jardin-variety convention with meetings, conferences, and cocktail parties, except this one’s held in the Palais des Festivals on the glamorous Croisette in Cannes. Sandy’s a fine-looking WOW representative who’s brilliant at sales and knows how to enjoy a cocktail or two. Here’s her first Postcard:
I’m back in Cannes, babies! Prior to jetting off to Cannes, I spent a few days in London visiting with the WOW UK office. They absolutely ROCK and know how to show a girl a good time! I heart you all, and come visit me in hell-ay! FYI: Johnni Javier & Lindy Taylor are DANGEROUS!!
This past weekend I’ve been attending MIPDOC, which is the International Showcase for Documentary Screenings. We’re featuring five fab WOW docs, including one of our latest films, TAMMY FAYE: DEATH DEFYING. Along with the usual fare and overbearing number of Iraq & war stories, some interesting docs I’ve read about and would love to see include PENIS DEMENTIA (Markham Street Films), a film about the “wonderful wiggly appendage and search for penis perfection”; the self-explanatory FLUFFY CUMSALOT, PORN STAR NAMES REVEALED (United Nathan Prod); and (best title for a documentary) SLUT (Tricon Films), a film which asks, “Who IS the slut? Can one be both a virgin and a whore?” I know some co-workers who would be great interviewees if they produce a sequel. [Ed note: Which ones?]
Anyway, I’m still recovering from my London adventure, so no late nights for Sandy until Monday night when we will be having a launch party for WOW’s ROCK AROUND THE BLOCK which premieres in the UK on ITV in May. The buzz is huge about the show and it’s guaranteed to kick some MIPTV arse.
More debauchery to come (London drinking dehydrated me). I wish they had Gatorade in Cannes.
Sandy aka Viva la Piha!
PS. I just met a GORGEOUS, TALL Englishman in the hotel lobby who’s taking me out for a cocktail tomorrow night. yummy yum yum!
