Principle photography wrapped on The Slattery Street Crockers over the weekend. This is a pilot for a new TV series by Newfoundland author and film maker, Kenneth J Harvey and will air sometime in the fall on NTV. Now its off to the editing suite for Ken and editor Christopher “Mr. Scissors” Darlington for assembly. It was a fast and furious week shooting in downtown St. John’s in the worst weather and location conditions but Ken could not have a gathered together a better cast and crew for the job. …you will not have seen St. John’s like this before.

In the last days of motion picture film the Newfoundland Independent Filmmakers Co-operative (NIFCO) ran what may be its last Super 8 film workshop in the summer of 2012. At the end of last year, news came that processing 8mm and 16mm motion picture film would no longer be a viable option for film makers in Canada. I was lucky enough to be a part of the “last batch” with long time film mentor, Roger Maunder.
My Super 8 short film was done in collaboration with HIV/AIDS activist and educator, Robyn Pardy. It is “part 1” because we hope this will be the opening sequence to a larger film project about the history HIV/AIDS, the people involved and the epidemiology in Newfoundland and Labrador. The rest of this project will, undoubtedly, be shot on digital HD motion picture cameras. Maybe a new Red Epic?
This was shot on a 70’s era Sanyo Super 8 movie camera with Ektachrome 100 Daylight film and transferred to digital for editing in an AVID editing suite at NIFCO. Audio tracks were recording separately with a Sony digital audio recorder and the original music score was done by Debashis Sinha in Toronto.
Thanks go to Roger Maunder for mentoring the Super 8 Workshops, Brad Gover for post-production guidance, Anna Petras for herding cats, Debashis Sinha for the score and especially Robyn Pardy for letting me follow her around with a vintage Super 8 movie camera. The girl knows her buses!

We’ve finally had a chance to get back to our project at 351 Water street this week. Had a great day with the iron workers at the 8 story level. …GREAT VIEW!!
The time lapse cameras are still chugging away nicely thanks to Panasonic, Manfrotto and Kata but we needed to catch up on our still photos as the erection of the steel for the top section has been underway for a few weeks now.
For more on the first new office building in downtown St. John’s in more than 25 years visit threefiftyone.ca
A new video has been posted and the photo gallery is filling up.
