Spend 69 seconds with Vancouver film producer Jamie Chapman whose pilot episode of the queer web series Lily and Oliver has recently debuted online.
01Your first job.
I sold videogames at a game retail store.
02The job you wanted as a child.
Haha, to work at a videogame store. I peaked early.
03The three things you would want with you on a deserted island.
A best friend, lawn darts, and a guitar.
Oh dear, I don’t know. Is it cliche to say Ellen? I suppose I don’t care if it is.
05Your biggest indulgence.
Peanut butter and reality TV (not at the same time, that’s a pathetic image). Once Big Brother starts I’ll be a shut in.
06One thing no one knows about you (and you’re willing to share).
I’ve never reversed parked into a stall. Juicy tidbit, no?
07Complete this sentence: I first kissed a boy …
… and it was worse than the previous kiss I had with a girl. It got better though.
08The one thing you are most proud of.
Uprooting my life in Calgary to move out to Vancouver and do what actually makes me happy. I respect people who take chances and don’t always bitch about life, I’m proud to now be one of them.
09 One word your best friend would use to describe you.
10The one thing or place you always take visitors to see/do when they come to Vancouver.
Walk the seawall around Stanley Park. Not the most original, but it’s right by my apartment and I have fallen in love with the walk.
