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!

On the eve of projection!

That's a pretty marquee. Every year it's so exciting to see our event go up on the history Roxy. But it makes me realize we have a lot of work to do!

Can't believe we're less than 48 hours away from the premiere of the Saskatoon films, followed by Regina's premieres a day later. Wanted to post things earlier, but we've been frantically busy collecting titles, synopses, soundtracks (hint, a KORG will be present in Saskatoon), designing programs and getting them off to the printer and doing media interviews. PHEW! Oh yeah, tested the projector because I was losing sleep that it was playing everything in slow motion. But that's NOT the case, so I am sleeping better now. Runs like a charm (typing while knocking on wooden desk).

Speaking of program design, just wanted to do a shout out to Emily Kohlert of Dandelion design for doing an incredible job on designing our programs for Saskatoon and Regina. They look great and I'd give you a sneak peak, but you'll just have to come to the events to get one :)

Speaking of the events. Share the Facebook pages to those you know. Here's the link for Saskatoon, and here's the one for Regina

The screenings are 100% FREE. Thanks to the support of the Saskatchewan Arts Board.

Now it's time to actually splice these films together, and we'll be pretty much set for two fantastic events!
