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!

We have just finalized our poster design for 2008. Thanks to Stacey Case a.k.a. MerchGuy, for doing the design (he also runs a killer cinema called TRASH PALACE). These are handmade silkscreened posters, which you'll be seeing up around Regina in the next week or so. We'll also have some printed up on premium sheets that are available for sale at the event on the 6th.
We'll be needing some volunteers to put up posters, so let me know if you want to help out to promote the event.
All the entry forms are in. We'll be announcing the line up of filmmakers for this year's event next week. Happy shooting to all those who are taking part.
