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)

Whiteshell Snowmobile clubLooking for a Fulfilling Opportunity?WE WANT YOU! We all know that snowmobile trails don’t just happen. It takes resources and many volunteer hours to maintain 13,000 kilometers of snowmobile trails in the areas of signing, grooming, equipment maintenance, shelter upkeep, etc. Why volunteer? People volunteer for many different reasons. For some, it’s to help others and give back to the community and club. For others, it is to build self-confidence, gain personal growth and learn new skills. We know it’s important to get outside during winter and enjoy all that Manitoba has to offer. Giving your time lends you a sense of well-being and connectedness to others and certainly fights boredom. It allows you to share your talents, abilities, and experiences while at the same time learning new skills from others. And don’t forget volunteers can have fun and enjoy themselves by making new friends. To volunteer please contact Snoman at info@snoman.mb.ca or your local club today! ... See MoreSee Less
