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!

5th Annual OTS8 at WNDX!
With summer on the brain, it's hard to believe that it will ever end, but WNDX is set up to storm Winnipeg's art scene for the 5th time this fall, and the call has been sent out for all Manitoba filmmakers to pick up a camera and shoot a reel for their 5th annual OTS8!
Here's a link to their sign up form.
Make sure you sign up by August 13th (actually, sign up today, as the 25 spots always fill up fast).
Looking forward to another great harvest of super 8 wonders from that one great city that never disappoints.
In the meantime, if you need to get your creative juices flowing for shooting a single reel, head up to Gimli next weekend (July 21-25), where some past OTS8 films have been programmed including SINGH by Sunny Sidhu, $100 film festival winner GOTHS! ON A BUS! by Jaimz and Karen Asmundson, and BELT BUCKLE/QUONSET HUT by Terry Mialkowsky and Shannon Jardine.
