We were contacted by the Hospital for Sick Children’s Garron Family Cancer Center, home to the largest pediatric oncology department in Canada. They asked us to come host a private screening of the film and make a demo of the game available to play for their clinicians and medical staff while we’re in Toronto for Hot Docs, with the goal of providing staff with valuable insight into the experience of the families of cancer patients. So we’re looking forward to the conversation we’ll have with the medical staff there.
The inevitable question regarding the appropriateness of attempting to convey a story so profoundly personal through the medium of interactive entertainment is not ignored. It’s perhaps best answered during a trip to PAX – a game conference open to the public – where the filmmakers capture the deeply emotional, tear-filled responses of some of the first people to play the game. We’re left with little doubt that what Ryan is creating is art, that his game is a wholly valid means of communicating and reflecting upon the human experience.
Whenever I am having one of my really bad days, I lock myself away in my room and put on Cabin Pressure. No matter what I am going through it never stops making me smile and laugh. I cannot thank you enough for creating this and for finding the most incredible cast to bring it to life. I was very lucky to see X and Y being recorded and to meet you afterwards. You are a lovely man and I think that is why you have such fantastic fans. Thank you. x
YOU are one of the most talented writers I have ever had the privilege to come across. The levels of humor you can intertwine into a coherent unit, the amazing characters you can bring to life and the wonderful stories that are entertaining, intelligent and deeply moving at the same time - all of it just leaves me in otter (sic) awe! :-)
"I cannot praise Andrew Jack highly enough. He has always explained things clearly and responded promptly via email and post to all questions and requests for meetings. He has been kind and a real pleasure to work with. Please pass on my thanks!"
"Ian exercised prompt, clear, patient professionalism throughout my contact. I did not experience any of the delays, lack of clarity, preparation, attention to detail and failure to progress which three members of my family have encountered from Solicitors in the area to which I have relocated".
Thank you for all that you have done to help me take my first steps on to the property ladder. Your advice and customer care have been outstanding and I have really appreciated your patience and kindness whilst I took the time to make this big decision.
"The entire process was made faultlessly easy and straightforward by Mr Todd. He examined the document in depth, queried and sought confirmation relating to one or two sections with my employer, kept me informed throughout and brought the matter to a satisfactory conclusion. His actions throughout confirmed to me that he was acting in my best interests at all times. Extremely satisfied with the whole procedure. Thank you."
