Subject: BS: NFB on-line, another try.. john f weldon
From: john f weldon

The National Film Board of Canada has launched its free on-line video service. If you have a fast enough connection you should be able to see lots of films in reasonably good resolution. Included are my own "Log Driver's waltz" and fiddler-animator Chris Hinton's "Blackflies", both based on the Wade Hemsworth songs of the same names.

I know I posted this before while it was still experimental, and some of you couldn't get it to work, but they've now made a big public hoo-hah about it, so maybe we'll be luckier.

Hi John: Link is working fine over here. All Folkmeisters should be like the "Nintendo Generation" and click around in there. Some fine Art goin' on...bob

p.s. Re: "Logdriver's Waltz"...Have to tell you that I've heard Kate and Anna do Wade's stuff, as well as my 'ol homey, Jack Nissenson; who used to talk to me about Wade Hemsworth all the time. But the meaning of the song came through with your fine animation,,,Thanks...BR

gnu: The vid doesn't autoplay. Click on John's section, the vid will reappear, then click on that and you should be O.K. That's why I used "The Nintendo Generation" reference. Keep clicking around 'til you get something...bob

You know That Canadian Guy (Glen Foster) who says that when Canucks get REALLY upset, they threaten to "write a god damned letter". Well, emails work too. (I assume I was not the only one.) It works now.

I also watched "The Cat Came Back".

Thanks Bobad. Brief, yes, but well written.

Brief... seems odd for a "government site", heheheee.

Thanks John.
I recall way back a film short that I've often wondered about. I typed in the title "Survival in the Bush" and there it was. Just watched it and it is still very good.

Beer, re "Survival in the Bush", quite the period piece and some good info for the uninitiated.

Just a word of caution to those who might watch it. It is not for the feint of heart. I have tears in my eyes about the bears. The deadfalls I was taught to build as a boy were much more lethal and were seldom left unattended, although from a distance, of course. But, one must also realize, the deadfall in the film was crude because it had to be "economical". Oh, and, the rabbit... I hit the mute on the speakers real quick. Made me cringe. I haven't heard that sound for nearly 40 years, and I never want to hear it again.

Wish I had been there. I could have taught the lads how to eat trout instead of sturgeon... yeeccchhh! And, they are ugly, too.

Minds me of that Limey I saw on TV a week or so ago. The SAS guy that drops into the wildeness and survives with just a few meager tools, a camera crew, some medics and a helicoptor.

He dropped into the sub-boreal forest in Siberia. Looked liked places I have been in central New Brunswick or Newfoundland or Labrador...

I WISH I had it on tape. When he talked about the "viscious" squirrels, I near shit myself laughing. And, when he was hacking the fur off the frozen squirrel with his knife and complaining about not beind able to just skin it, while sitting next to a roaring fire, a thought came to me.... how the fuck can anybody that stupid survive in the wilderness? Oh, yeah, camera crew and such.

Hacking at a frozen squirrel beside a fire!! And, then, saying how delicious it was? They musta brought one with them... one of the ones that taste good, wherever from I wouldn't know. I'd rather eat a camera.... more meat on one, too!

They are continuing to add films regularly....

Here's a few I recommend...

Special Delivery by Me and Eunice Macaulay (Oscar Winner 1979)

The Big Snit (Richard Condie)

When the Day Breaks (Wendy Tilby & Amanda Forbis)

As usual, if the film doesn't start, link to somewhere else & then return. I don't know why this bug exists, but a few tries will get the film going.

The link is in the first post.
