Knitfix – Contest Version

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

This last weekend, we participated in a 48 hour film contest where we had to write, shoot, and edit a film based on an inspiration package we are supplied with.  It was an awesome weekend, packed with lots of hard work and minimal sleep.

We submitted our film at 7pm yesterday evening, then scampered back to my place for a screening at 9pm.  It was very well received among our friends, but we have to wait until the end of the month to find out how we rank against the other films in the contest.  The version of the film below is the one we completed for 7pm – the contest version.  There will be a re-edit before it’s released officially.

Also, remember to check out the behind the scenes photos in my photo album.

Celluloid Social Club

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009




A bunch of us went down to the Celluloid Social Club last night to watch some films. It was a packed house, and the evening went pretty late. Here’s a quick list of the films that were shown:

  • – Trailer for Nurse. Fighter. Boy
  • – Trailer for Talent Time
  • – Stationary Activity (stop motion film)
  • – Intervelometer (stop motion film)
  • – Gold! Gold! Gold! (12 min, drama)sarah
  • – The Airline Pilot (3 min, comedy)
  • – My Inventions
  • – Robogreed
  • – Promo clip for Rendez-vous de cinema quebecois et francophone
  • – Sarah In The Dark (10 min, dark comedy by Jennifer Halley from Battlestar Galactica)



The First Weekend Club is presenting an advanced screening of Nurse. Fighter. Boy next week which im contemplating attending.  Also those two stop motion films were created in a 48 hour stop motion film contest called Trick 17, which I’m extremely excited to enter this next fall!

What’s neat about going down to this venue is that after each film shown, there are usually directors, producers, actors, or whatever from the film that get up and answer a quick audience Q&A session.  I’ll be sure to try and come out again next month.

Newspaper Clippings from 50 Hour Challenge

Saturday, November 29th, 2008

There have been two articles in the paper, this first one was in the Peace Arch Newspaper today, on page 22:

The second article was printed in the Surrey Now, which I will get a copy of soon and post up here as well, but for now you can read the article on their website.  I’m mentioned in the 9th paragraph down:

Garnering first prize was Paul Romein’s group, Raised by Monkeys. Romein has entered several of these contests and is pretty well established as a “mini” filmmaker. Check out his website at”

This second article is more specific and has my website written in it so hopefully people can use that to come watch the contest version of the film if they are interested!

Actually – if you are reading this and got my website from the paper, I’d love to hear from you – just post a comment on here!

UPDATE on December 3, 2008 at 2:19pm:

I just got a hold of the article from the Surrey Now:

Synopsis: A man’s attempt at a successful mid-life crisis.

This film was shot and edited in 50 hours for a contest put on by Surrey Little Theatre.  There will be a small re-edit to polish it up a little, before it goes live on its film page.

Surrey Little Theatre 50 Hour Film Challenge

Friday, November 14th, 2008

We just entered into a 50 hour film contest, starting 6pm this Friday evening.  We were provided with a randomly chosen inspiration package which must be used in our five minute film:

  • Location: Front Entrance
  • Object: Mylar Helium Balloon saying “50 Celebrate”
  • Character: Cowboy or Cowgirl
  • Line: Plan as though you’ll live forever and live as though you’ve got 6 months

Among other things, we will be judged on how well we incorporate our elements into our film. If you think you have an amazing idea based off this inspiration package, contact me or post it as a comment!

Check out some other current projects we have on the go.
