"Victoria has a small but vibrant film community. It is growing and has ambitions. This is both a delight and an opportunity to serve my new community, which has welcomed me so warmly. I continue to roam the world as part of my new businesses, and I have added the promotion of Victoria's inviting prospects to my agenda. Who can resist daffodils in February?"
