Day 1 PRIMA VISTA
Up early, the festival has put us up in a nice hotel by the river in this beautiful Estonian town of Tartu and after a delicious Estonian breakfast we were whisked off on a welcome tour and festival networking introductory boat trip down the river with the team.

DEPARTING FOR ESTONIA
The next tour of the Between Stations project sees the show being showcased at the Prima Vista UNESCO world heritage festival in Tartu, Estonia.
We're in for a long day of travel as we're about to embark upon planes, trains and automobiles to get there!
So, we've finally arrived in Tartu... after a full almost 24 hours of travelling to get here. Tartu is in the eastermost part of Estonia and after a 6am flight to Amsterdam with writer and performer Andy Willoughby (a flight which was majorly delayed and resulted in my hold bag with the projector, lenses and various stage and film equipment not making our connecting flight) followed by a connecting flight to Helsinki, followed by a train into Helsinki city centre to pick up our guitarist, the LEGENDARY Masi Hukari, followed by a mad dash to catch the boat to Tallin, followed by a nice amble saunter to catch the bus from Tallin to Tartu.
So it's nearly midnight here in Tartu and I think a brief hotel beer is in order before we get our heads down ready for the busy itinerary of workshops at the festival tomorrow!

LIVE STREAMING TO FINLAND
Tonight, as a part of the Building Bridges project we're LIVE streaming the show to Finland.
This project has been really cool as not only are we streaming live to audiences in Helsinki and Turku, but perfomers from Finland are also simulatenously performing on screen over here in the UK. The awesomeness of technology!!!

2016 in review
2016 was a solid year in the development of Dan Perry Productions LTD, particularly in the international markets with our long-ranging project with poet Andy Willoughby that necessitated on-location filming across Finland. Playwrighting and theatre development continued blossoming with the first public performance of my latest play, "A Fragile Calm" and we covered ground in the field of documentary, live-event coverage and production services.
Commercial content has been a strong focus in 2016 with TV commercial output also tailored to the online trend of maximising social media impact and my team and I have been extremely privileged to work with some very forward thinking and exciting brands this past year.
Of course, my passion always will be film and I have relished being able to take a narrative focus on film and video content for clients in 2016 and will be taking all of this experience with me into my feature film career. One of my favourite parts of 2016 was beginning to lecture in Screenwriting at Teesside University, on the very MA that I was studying on a few years ago.
I'm very much looking forward to 2017 and with various commercial, feature, documentary and theatre projects in the pipeline, as well as my Screenwriting Lecturing I'm hoping to take my career and production company to the next level.
See you all in 2017!
