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 750 films have been created for the One Take Super 8 Event!

2010 Poster!


Well, here it is. Our lovingly screen printed poster is on its way to billboards and lightposts near you Regina. Merchguy has done a bang up job again, with this original design. It's a great way to celebrate our first decade of super 8 films.

I managed to compile some statistics from our first 9 years which are quite impressive.

Since 2000 , The Regina OTS8 has screened 226 original super 8 films (add on this year's 25 and we crest the 250 mark!)
Of those 226 films, there were a number of repeating filmmakers (only a few of who have participated all 10 years). In total 113 different artists helped created those 226 films. This does not include the numerous individuals who undoubtedly helped create the masterpieces. If you have any favorite OTS8 memories that you want to share, please do so in the comments field (favorite film, soundtrack, audience interaction). Looking forward to loading up the projector in Regina for the 10th time. Stay tuned for full program details.

there were some gems last year. i particularly liked Charlie Hill's piece about the forklift driver with Ride of the Valkyrie playing.

i am also a fan of the ghosts projected on walls using an overhead projector. i think Jeannie Straub did that one...?

Daniel Suchoboki's pieces are always really well thought out i find... and last year he even did some performance in front of the screen. that was neat.
