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!

Films off to lab!

Very exciting moment as all the films have been shot and we'll be shipping 40 new films to the lab as 40 collective breaths are held waiting to see if magical images will appear.

Later this week, we'll be announcing all of our participants in Saskatoon and Regina and you'll start spotting our posters hanging up around town(s).

Filmmakers are busy putting together soundtracks and we're finalizing all of our screening details and prepping our projectors.

And in fantastic news, as we started this year's OTS8 we witnessed Kodak cancelling the last colour reversal stock, but I am happy to announce that Pro8mm has revived our hopes of continuing our OTS8 events! Their 200ISO reversal stock will be available in a couple of months. Very much looking forward to shooting and showing it at future events! You can read their full press release here.

2013 poster

So we are pretty jazzed about our new poster, being screen printed as we speak and about to fly up on lightposts and supermarket bulletin boards in weeks to come. Much thanks to Merchguy for his continued solid work for our events.

Films are rolling in cameras as spring explodes in SK. With a full slate in Regina and a good first turn out in Saskatoon. A couple more weeks of shooting and we'll be seeing a bucket full of cartridges heading to the labs.

A shout out to Syracuse and Montreal for wrapping up fantastic OTS8 events in the past couple of weeks. We'll post participants and some stats here soon (and some pics if we can grab them).
