Lets Talk Vintage Watches for IWG

So back in the day 1982 kids were still going crazy for Casio Digital watches. I need to find about 24 more that fit kids age 10 to 16. They don't need to work so they can be found for cheap, if not free from old junk draws in your house or maybe at your Grandparents. Also flee markets, garage sales, second hand shops, where ever. If you find one please feel free to mail it to me.

 I purchased the one above on ebay for $20 and free shipping. I needed one good one so I could record the sounds for the film sound track. It was the best deal I could find. ebay buy it now link




One that I would really like to get is one that is also a calculator. Like the one in the picture on the right. Again it doesn't need to work because I looked them up and they run from $39.95 and up.










We can't use the black plastic one because they weren't popular until about 1985 I think it was. Silver or gold are best.

Canoe Carrying Trailer

So I have this old trailer that was given to me or donated for production use. I'm going to turn it into a Canoe Carrier that holds 8 Canoes for the IWG film. Also I can reuse it for future productions.

The first thing I'm going to do is pressure wash it and inspect it's structure to make sure it's sound. Then I will repair anything that needs repairing. I will look over the wiring and lights. Then I will line the bottom with 5/8 plywood and build a 2x4 tree to hold all the Canoes.

 I will also build a plywood lid that opens from each side so I can store all the paddles and life jackets. It will be like a ready to go Canoeing tool box on wheels. I will post more pics and info as I build it over the next few weeks.

Looking for lights

Hey everyone. I'm looking for a good deal on some Mole-Richardson 200w film lamps. They look like the one in the picture. I'm hoping to find them for under $50 each or maybe someone has a few lying around not do anything and would be willing to lend them to us for the film.

I've got something to blog about!

Hey there, I got a good deal on five back packs for the film. I drove allover Southerner Ontario to find them. I checked all the second hand shops I could find and nothing for about 4 months. Then two days ago I walked into one shop and I had the feeling that they had two or more. I found one on the show room floor and couldn't find the other. I asked the clerk at the counter and she said to come back another day because one may show up.

I felt like she was holding out on me so I took a look around outside where people drop stuff off and there it was. A really nice orange one. I took a closer look and there was four just sitting. I asked how much they wanted for them and they wouldn't say.

"They need to be priced first" and that I "would have to come back on Saturday."

Well I just about fell over. I don't want to come back on Saturday, they may be sold by then. I went back at 6pm and the new shift workers were in and they sold them to me on the spot.

IWG Life Jackets Info.

I was talking with some of the parents of the actor s a while back about life jackets for their kids for the film. I did some research and Canadian has a good deal on Keep a Float Blue and Yellow 3 belts for $18.99. 3 belts is a bit too new looking for 1982 but the colors will work.   079-1900-6    CT Web page

I have a pic here of a Yellow Keep a Float that I got at Canadian Tier for  $17.99 I like it because it has the zipper in the front. It also looks more 1982.

I have a picture here of a Buoy O Boy 1985 life jacket to compare the look. One thing we could do is paint the 3rd belt on the new ones the same color as the jacket so it doesn't stand out so much on camera.

I also have a pic of a Orange and yellow one form Zellers for $29.95.

There is also a Key Hole type life jacket that is really 1980's looking.. This style never seams to age. It's $19.99 at Canadian Tire and I found them on ebay for as low as $8.99.


Oh please remember my new email is sterlingjohnston@hotmail.com

My website is down

My SterlingProductions.ca website is down and so I will be redirecting to my back up site. It will be back up in about 24 hrs. My email is also down so please use my sterlingjohnston@hotmail.com to contact me.

UPDATE April 17, 2012: The website redirect is working and I have repaired the PayPal buttons on it so everything works now. I am looking for a new web site hosting company for the old site. The old hosting company just charges to much, I do have the money to cover the cost and so I need to find something cheaper. Hopefully it will be back up soon.

Update April 10 2012

So the canoe is almost finished. Just need to look into putting some air chambers in it. Once the weather warms up I will sea test it to make sure it works well before making the next 5. I have a 16 foot that I'm going to barrow from some people up north of here for the Scout leaders Canoe.

I have also been very busy setting up the sets for YCDTOYT. We are going to tape some new episodes this weekend.

Get your picture in the film!

There is going to be a missing persons board in the film and I'm going to post pictures of people that have gone missing in the woods were the scouts are going to be camping.
 Just send us your picture, head and shoulders, and we will make it into a missing person poster t post in the scene. You should dress in 1982 or older clothing for your picture.
 Also you could send your old class photo from 1982 if you want.
I was going to use this idea as a fund raiser, you know make a donation of $5 and we will put you in the film but I think I will do it for free because its more fun.  

I got the idea from Shannon’s banner idea. I will post it when I find it. I know I downloaded a copy and it was on facebook but for now it's lost. Found it :)  I have posted a copy of CathyDirector's poster.

IWG Canoe Update

So a few days ago I added the wood strips to the top edge of the Canoe. I cut a 16 foot 2x4 down to 3/4 inch strips then glued one on each side of the top edge. The clamps in the picture held them in place until the glue dried.

Today was a really nice day so I took the Canoe outside to sand it down and get it ready for paint.

Once I was finished sanding I painted the outside of the Canoe green. I'm going to paint the trim white and give it a name in the next few days. Building the canoe was easy compared to picking a name to give it. Hummm It has to match the film and the year 1982 and it would have been giving its name by the Scout that built it.
