There are still plenty of seats left if you are interested in signing up for their Film Workshop on Saturday here in Tignish. If you would like to learn how to use an 8mm analogue video camera and shoot a small clip of your own, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call Tel: 778-239-0572 or 604-788-0789 and Alexandra & Ryder will be happy to figure out a schedule that will work with you for the lesson and help with developing the film in their travelling workshop aka “Black Bus”!
Filmmakers Alexandra Caulfield and Ryder White have travelled across the country setting up film workshops, and they need your help to make some movies here in West Prince.
Interested participants will learn a bit about filmmaking and then will have the opportunity to make their own short films about life in their communities, all of which will be screened in town at the end of the month.
Participation is free and is open to people of all ages (under 15 please have a parent with you), skill levels, and backgrounds. You don’t need to have touched a camera before–they still want to hear from you!
Anyone interested should attend a brief info session meeting and signup at the Tignish Heritage Inn Meeting Room on Wednesday, May 8 at 7pm or, if you can’t make it but still want to participate, get in touch by emailing email@example.com or by calling Ryder at 604-788-0789.
Of the 12 stops on the Canadian Frame(lines) voyage, Tignish is the only one on the Island – don’t miss it!
The Battle of Atlantic Remembrance will be held at Tignish run (north block) on Sunday 05 May 2013. HMCS Queen Charlotte Naval Reserve unit from Charlottetown are hosting this event along with the Tignish Legion.
The event starts at 12:15 with the laying of a wreath in memory of sailors, soldiers and airmen killed during this battle. Local fishermen Kenneth LeClair has volunteered to use his boat to transport Padre Davis and Father Bud Gallant out to sea for the laying of the wreath.
Yes, that black bus in town belongs to the Canadian Frame(lines) crew Alexandra and Ryder, who are on a cross-country trip to explore small town Canada and learn more about the people and places as they give 12 local film workshops in 12 different provinces. Participants learn the essentials of filmmaking, shoot a short film of their own, and screen it right there in their communities. “It’s part of an effort to take a wider view of community life and Canadian cultural identity through the eyes of Canadians from across the whole country.” Final screening attendees also get to view the films created by previous participants across Canada.
Alexandra Caulfield and Ryder White started the project in Pender Harbour, BC, and moved from there to Cremona, Alta, Gravelbourg, SK, St. Stephen, NB, and are here in Tignish PEI, staying by the Tignish Heritage Inn for the next 2 weeks.
They are interested in all that the Tignish Area has to offer, and are presently drafting up a list of places to see and things to do, so if you would like to show them around, have them over for a lobster feed, a cup of tea and stories of the old days, or throw a good old fashioned kitchen party for them, either knock on the bus doors, flag them down, email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 882-2392. Either way, if you see them, say a big “Hello!” and mark Wed May 8th, 7pm on your calendar for the public meeting, (@ the Heritage Inn) info session and signup for the film workshop.

Specifically, they are looking for private collectors (not stores) with quantity and quality.
If you have, or know someone who has a collection of unique old things, (like buddy down the road with the barn full of ‘stuff’) that you think might like the Canadian Picker team to stop buy and check it out, and maybe buy some, on TV, here is what they are looking for:
- The name of the collector
- The phone number/email/address of the collector
- What type of collection the collector has
- Where they keep the collection (How it is stored, like barn, or building)
- How big the collection is
They like antiques, from old radios, to weathervanes, sewing machines, signs, memorabilia, and more. I’ve seen the show, they are great guys, and it would be fun and exciting to have them visit the area and film a show here, so let’s find them some collectables to pick!
Anna did mention that they were on a tight deadline to plan, so the sooner we can get back to her, the better.
You can email her the info: Anna Kowalski email@example.com , or call me (Kim) at 882-2392 if you have any questions. [sendtokindle]
