John Porter has been a filmmaker, performer, photographer and writer
since 1968. Known in his native Toronto as the King of Super 8, he
has made more than 300 short films, mostly super 8, and has performed
more than 70 solo shows internationally. Many of his films are
silent, made in series (Camera Dances, crowd portraits, local
histories, rituals, toy stories), and he shows his camera originals
(no copies). Often while projecting he performs live in the audience,
in front of the screen, or while hand-holding the small projector for
'surround super 8' in galleries and for projecting onto passing
people and vehicles while 'film-busking' on the street at night. His
films are dynamic, humourous and revealing, enjoyed by people of all
ages.

The One Take Super 8 Event began in 2000 and has been showcased
across Canada, the United States and in a number of international
festivals. In 2006 it was held in Regina, Saskatchewan. The event
invites filmmakers to shoot a single reel of super 8 film which are
then collectively screened at a public venue. All films are shown as
shot, no cuts, no splices, and without the filmmakers having seen
their work beforehand. To date more than 200 films have been created
for the event.
