Another Movie Shoot opportunity for cottage owners in Whiteshell Provincial Park!

Posted on: November 28, 2019  |  

Whiteshell Cottagers Association (WCA) has been asked once again to assist in locating an appropriate location. They would like to send out a location Scout as early as this weekend.

The production company is A24 which have produced the movies shown in photo’s & many more. Movie name will be Bodies, Bodies, Bodies.  They are scouting locations for a film that is looking to come to Manitoba in early 2020. Prep would begin in early January and filming would begin in February. The filmmakers are looking for a large, 70’s or 80’s cabin. It must NOT be a log place. It must be lake front, does NOT have to be an Island as described below.

Below is what they are looking for (we have already warned that the chance of a cottage having both a basement & a 2nd floor are slim to none)

“A large two-story wooden house with a porch that wraps around the second story. It also needs to have a basement and ideally a hot tub. This is the sort of house one would only be able to boat to in the summer or ski or snow mobile into in the winter. Ideally this house is surrounded by trees. The aesthetics of the house are varied but lean strongly towards 70s. The interior needs to have a large central hub living room with high ceilings, that connects to a main entrance foyer with a staircase and landing leading to the second floor. The dark wood of the walls juxtaposed with the large windows give the house a paradoxically claustraphobic and cathedral-like feel.

If you would like to submit your cottage for consideration please email a “few” photos (inside & out), along with your Lake, Block #, Lot # and contact information to Drew Scurfield drewscurfield@gmail.com AND copy us here at WCA webmaster@whiteshellcottagers.com

IMPORTANT NOTE : Do NOT send a ton of photos at this time, limit to between 4 and 6. Many email systems block emails with too much content & therefore yours might not make it through. If more photos needed Drew or WCA will contact you.

AGAIN: Please remember to include your contact information & where your cottage is located. Last year half the people failed to provide. Otherwise good luck (If your cottage chosen they will indeed pay compensation for using it)

Caddy Air Field – Manitoba Historical SocietyDuring the Great Depression of the 1930s, the Canadian federal government employed able-bodied, unemployed men to build public infrastructure. In return for their labour, each man was provided with food, shelter, and 20 cents per day. In Manitoba, three construction gangs worked in the Whiteshell Forest Reserve (today’s Whiteshell Provincial Park) to build roads to enable the development of tourism in this part of the province. Between Fall 1933 and Spring 1934, one hundred men from the Caddy Lake Relief Camp, under the supervision of Col. Logie Armstrong from the Department of National Defense, built an emergency airfield at this site about 1.5 miles west of the Ontario border. ... See MoreSee Less

Good morning, we found a small water craft (paddle boat) adrift in Big Whiteshell Lake. It was found floating in the middle of the lake no where near a cabin. I was wondering if you could post something for me? If they can identify what it is then we will know it is going to the rightful owner. They can message me to identify what it is and for pick up information. Or call me at 1 (204) 348-3294. ... See MoreSee Less
