More budget problems for the film festival project.  The Rocker told me that I had to include his fees in the budget as well (I thought that he was taking care of his pay separately).

I’m worried that this will kill the project, but as he told me, “do not be too slack with asking a decent price, there is no way I want people in Canada to think we are setting up shows cheap (sweat shop) circus shows in Asia.”

Additional problems are coming from the city’s requests that we reduce the budget but work with established names like Cirque du Soleil.  I think it’s impossible now, but The Rocker says that if they really want this thing, they can scrape up the cash.
