Gas Station or no Gas Station

So I have been looking for an old gas bar in the middle of now where for the film. There is one way over in Grand Valley but it would be too far to drag everyone from the main filming location. What I need is one closer to Elora. There is an old one that require gas pumps so I was going to build a set of fake pumps but now I have found a second location and it has pumps already. we just need to ask the owners so we know which way we are going to go. Oh the other option is to cut the scenes all together.

Production News!

Hey everyone. We are still fundraising. We still need to reach our goal of $5,000, Please swing by the website and have a look.

Also I haven't had any luck selling the plywood canoe so I'm going to quickly build a second one and make it into a catamaran or pontoon boat for a filming plate form. It should make a reasonably stable floating platform that won't flip over with all my camera equipment on it. I will need one or two volunteers to help paddle as i film.

Thanks everyone for all their support with this project.

Canoe carrying trailer build

So my plan was to take pics as I go but my hands get really dirty when working with old steel. I'm really not interested in getting my still camera covered in dirt. Any ways here are a few pictures from yesterday.

I needed to make a new hitch bar for the trailer. the old one in the picture is too short for carrying canoes. The canoes would hit the tow vehicle.

 I removed it. 

I purchased some new steel and blots to make the new one. Drilling the holes in 3/16 steel is not an easy task with a corded hand drill. But I managed. I then bolted it in place.

I then cut the ends of my wooden canoe rack I built way back in May and painted it a seven's rusty brown color that I remember everyone painting their fences with. In the film the Scout Leader in 1982 would still have 50's to 70's influences.

I will be repainting all the dark blue today and the black on the top. Also need to wire wheel all the new steel and then paint it black. Then it's ready for it's road test. More pics to come :)

The Tents of IWG

I started looking over the tents I have for the film. I have two brown, two green, one blue and red and one orange. All of them are four person so they will work good for filming in. I also have a red two man tent for Scout Leader Dave's tent.

I was just outside organizing the tents to make sure they have all there parts. There is nothing like getting out on location and we're missing a part.

Filming soon!

I have the script 99% complete. There is a few things to tweak yet but I can start filming and so we shall. Starting on July 24! We are short of our goal but people can still make donations right up until we finish editing the film. I had to barrow some money for friends and family to keep on schedule so any donation even a $1 will help. We have many great perks for your donation so please stop into the website and have a look.

IWG production update

So the script is almost 100% complete. I have a few small rewrites then it's finished. i will be handing copies out to the actor soon as well as a filming schedule.

I have my old website back up again. there is allot of missing pages and pics. I can't find all the peaces for it because my main computer crashed months ago and it's still not fixed so i'm searching out back up files.

Any ways I may just build a whole new website from scratch.

thanks for checking out my blog here
