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!

WNDX 2010 OTS8 is Full.

For some this is great news (those who entered). For others great disappointment (those who didn't).

You snooze you lose in Winnipeg. After less than a week, all of this year's spots for the 5th annual WNDX OTS8 have been snapped up, and soon cameras will be rolling. My, they have a lot of time, as the event will not take place for over 2 months. I can foresee some potential for amazing time lapse or animation work. Who knows what a summer of biblical rains and mosquitos will do for the creativity of these prairie folk.

For those who didn't get in, all is not lost. You can always see if anyone needs an extra hand filming their one take wonder. And it's always worth coming out to the event to see what cinematic charms will grace the screen. Save the date. October 3rd. Gas Station Theatre. It'll be a doozy.

In other news. Saskatchewan, prepare yourself. Submission forms have been tweaked. Film has been ordered. Keep your eyes peeled, cause any day now we'll open up submissions for our 10th event.
