I don’t know what I would have done without Diane. If it wasn’t for her working the red carpet at Brauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, there is absolutely no way I would have had the photographs of me splashed all over the web, or had interviews with the different media outlets like Entertainment Tonight, Maxim and E!.

“Diane Foy worked tirelessly as the publicist for the world premiere of Yes Madam, Sir at the Toronto Int Film Festival. It was a hectic schedule with five public and press/industry screenings as Diane worked around the clock to organise and liase with print, radio and TV media to raise the profile of our independent production. What resulted was a huge buzz surrounding the film with packed houses at all screenings.”
