Hand processing Super 8mm for multidisciplinary play KaleidoCycle

By Film, KaleidoCycle No Comments

I went with Co-Producer Chrystene Ells to Wascana Park and shot a couple rolls of Super 8mm black and white film to be used as projection art in KaleidoCycle, a play set to open at the end of May, 2012 at the Globe Theatre [KaleidoCycle page on the Globe Theatre website]. Over the weekend the film was hand processed as a negative image in buckets in the basement lab of Daniel Suchoboki [who donated his facilities]. The results were fantastic!
These images will be projected on some of the performers live during the play.

Wrapped master exterior shots on a puppet film

By Film No Comments

This weekend we wrapped the master exterior shots for Chrystene Ells‘ puppet film. We shot in the PuppetWorks at the Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative.

The shoot went really well and everyone was in good spirits. Sarah Huber was also on set, helping out in the camera department. We had a jib on a dolly set up and were shooting on the Panasonic HVX200.
We got the giggles late into the day. This is a common “been on set too long” phenomenon. Puppets can seem pretty funny after a while, especially when you start talking to them more than the puppeteer under the table. They are so tiny and they look around with the same mannerisms as you and me.
