Here’s your chance to be a star. An invitation has gone out to some community lists, at least those of a certain set, to participate in a film described as :
...an original movie for family viewing that shows off the beautiful and quirky characteristics of our community.
Hard to resist.
… looking for all kinds of people who would like to participate in a community movie making project next summer. No movie making or acting experience required. We will apply for a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts under the “Artists and Community Collaboration Program and hopefully get some funding from Municipal and Provincial governments as well [emph ours].
Our tax dollars at work.
This is an opportunity to be part of something special. You’ll get to meet new people and be part of a team that will create an original local movie that will be a lot of fun to do plus you’ll be learning from an artist who has been working in the film and television business for twenty five years.
Our first story meeting and company practice is Saturday, September 5, 2009, 2:00pm – 5:00pm at the Ocean Spirit Studio in Canning. We really do need all kinds of people. So don’t be shy. Be part of this community movie making project. The finished movie will be screened locally and hopefully on the film festival circuit as well. Please call 582 3888 if you have any questions.
Somehow, although they say anyone ” who loves Kings County” can participate, and they want all kinds of people, we think that would exclude us. They didn’t send an invitation to us to extend to our readers [what would we do without our generous sources who feed us these things? Thanks!]. But they are missing out. We have so much we could contribute.
We are not sure if this film is to be a fiction, a documentary or a mockumentary but there is lots of potential for drama in Wolfville. Think of the R1 battle – the verbal “stoning” might be a critical scene. Or the heartbreak of business owners closing their doors, having to fold. Cut to scenes of dark storefronts. And potential for comedy; Brian Sanderson’s experience with dog control would be good for a few laughs. He could play himself and if they need a good writer…
But for sure there will be filming at the Farm market. Will the mayor have a starring role or a bit part? One thing you can be sure about; it will be shown at the Acadia cinema on their new, ahem – excuse us, OUR new digital projector.
