One Take Super 8 Event
The One Take Super 8 Event (OTS8) began in 2000, with 20 filmmakers each shooting a single reel of Super 8 film, which then premiered to an audience without the filmmakers seeing their work beforehand. All the films were shown as shot. No cuts. No splices. The popularity of this non-competitive festival has allowed it to return each year with more filmmakers participating. To date over 1000 films have been created for over 50 One Take Super 8 Events across North America!

Award winning films
Some past OTS8 films and filmmakers walked away with a handful of awards this past weekend at the $100 Film Festival. As we listed in a previous post, the OTS8 was well represented at the event (making the odds in favour of an alumni picking up at least one award). But it seems like the OTS8 owned the podium this year.
Picking up Best 8mm film was Leslie Supnet and her WNDX OTS8 2009 film sun moon stars rain.
After walking away with best 8mm film Artifices (from Pop Montreal OTS8 2007) at the 2009 $100 Film Festival, Alex Larose returned with J. a 16mm film made with OTS8 alumni Sol Nagler winning best 16mm film this year.
And picking up the Audience Favorite award (some might consider it the most coveted prize), was Karen and Jaimz Asmundson with their hit WNDX OTS8 2009 film Goths! On the Bus!
Congratulations to all the winners. Look forward to more OTS8 genius from them in the future.
