Terrance Odette ARTIST TALK

terrance-odette-smallOn April 11th at the RPL Film theatre, award-winning feature-filmmaker Terrance Odette spoke to an audience about what it takes to make a Canadian feature film. Fascinated with the Neorealism genre and such films as The 400 Blows, Terrance set out to create stories structured in a similar way. Enthused by the simplicity of the journey film, where a single character is sent on a journey,  Terrance set out to shoot his first feature on a mishmash of 35mm film ends that he had been saving in his freezer. With a budget of only $350,000 he was able to create Heater, which went on to win Best Screenplay & Best Director at the Vancouver International Film Festival.
Terrance has had much success in his feature filmmaking career, and we were very lucky to get the chance to hear him speak about how he got to where he is now.  – Thanks Terrance!

Independent Visions: Films for One to Eight Projectors

The next Independent Visions – Films for One to Eight Projectors – promises to be a unique experience with multiple projectors going and the filmmaker himself, Roger Beebe, running from projector to projector.

independent visions 4 beebe2

Made and projected in a variety of formats (Video, 16mm, and super-8mm), the films combine found footage and Beebe’s own striking imagery of American landscapes, seen through the prism of technological change. But they also exist as performance films, since, as Beebe says, “they an only be screened with [the filmmaker] actually running the projectors- and running from projector to projector.”

Join the Dunlop, University of Regina’s Film Department, and the Filmpool at the RPL Film Theatre for the fourth episode in the Independent Visions series on Tuesday, April 7th at 7pm! Q&A with Roger after the screening.
