Solid and Engaging
Ladies and GentlemAn

Review by Dave Stewart

I can’t recall the actual wording of the request from The Buzz when I was first asked to review Off the Cuff Comedy Presents: Ladies & GentlemAn. I can, however, tell you what I heard: “How’d you like to review a new sketch comedy show with a hard-to-remember name performed by four recent musical theatre graduates/ triple threats? It’s playing at 11 pm on a

City Cinema @ 20
City Cinema @ 20

by Dave Stewart

There are places and people that we sometimes take for granted in PEI. These mainstays create a backdrop to our day-to-day, enhance our quality of life here, and gently influence us whether we interact regularly with them or not.

Without a doubt, City Cinema falls into this category, providing Islanders with the opportunity to see culturally significant movies onscreen while also hosting

And Yet I Blame Hollywood
Island Imagemakers
Horoscope for Islanders

To revisit my history with The Buzz, I have to go back to my history with Peter Richards. A modest fellow, he won’t like this, but in order to be accurate it’s necessary.

I first became aware of Peter when I turned of age in the tubular 80s and started attending dances at the late and lamented Montage Dance Theatre.

The Ottoman Empire
The business of transferring creativity

by Dave Stewart

What happens when you bring a chef and a former musical theatre performer/producer together? In the case of Christopher Gillis and Chef Craig Dauphinee, you get a creative collaboration called The Ottoman Empire, a Charlottetown-based business that started as an interior design and decorating company. A fascinating side effect of this two-man

Future Plans
Arts Education on PEI

by Dave Stewart

Earlier this year, the Interactive Multimedia program at Holland College was put on hiatus and an instructor laid off. Recently, an instructor who had been teaching for more than twenty years in the Graphic Design program at Holland College was let go. With widespread speculation about forthcoming retirements in the Media and Communications Department at the College,

by Dave Stewart

Dave Stewart: Describe yourself as a filmmaker.

Rick Gibbs: I’d boil it down to “team player.” My favorite gigs have always been as part of a crew, from gofer/PA to Director/DP, the collaborative energy is what I most enjoy. In recent years I’ve enjoyed working with younger filmmakers; passing on whatever experience and knowledge I might have to the next generation.

Dave Stewart: How did you get into filmmaking?

Mark Sandiford: I grew up in Montreal a few blocks away from the NFB. My older sister had a lot of friends who worked there making shorts and experimental films and I idolized those people. I turned 14 in 1967 and spent every day of that summer at Expo 67 visiting every pavilion and watching every film. That was a mind-blowing

Dave: How did you get involved in filmmaking?

Louise: At the age of 48, I found myself at a crossroads when a friend came along and offered me a producer assistant job on a feature film being shot in Halifax, The Magic of Marciano, starring Nastassja Kinski.I’ve never seen the final cut, and as far as I know, it never even made it to video, but that doesn’t matter bec

Joey Weale

Island Imagemakers
by Dave Stewart

Joey Weale has been a part of PEI’s film and theatre scene for longer than you’d think, both onstage/on camera and behind the scenes. What’s uniquely characteristic about Joey’s film work here on the Island, to this point, is his use of Super 8 film stock to create short action oriented films that are completely without dialogue.

Dave: How’d you get started filmmaking?

Island Image Makers
by Dave Stewart

With the ECMAs taking place here on PEI this month, it seemed fitting for Island Image Makers to get all music-like and focus on Island music videos. I asked some of the folks who’d previously been the subject of an Island Image Maker profile for their picks for favourite PEI music videos. Here’s what some of them had to say:

Peter G. Murphy: Racoon Bandit – Hat. ‘

Island Image Makers
by Dave Stewart

Adam Perry is part of a small but choice group of PEI filmmakers I first became aware of about 5 years ago. They were (are) all making interesting, mostly short flicks that reflected PEI with a more wide-reaching sense of humour. Recently, Adam worked with Chef Michael Smith and the Culinary Alliance of Prince Edward Island to create “Food Country,” a web series sho

by Dave Stewart

Dave Stewart: So, what got you into filmmaking?

JoDee Samuelson: My friend Vian Emery phoned me to say there was an animation workshop at the Island Media Arts Coop and was I interested. At the time I was substitute teaching, and I thought anything would be better than that. I think this workshop was a JDP (Remember those?). We got paid a stipend to show up and draw
