What's New At Java



We're "Kraken" open the shipping boxes on our new UAV.

Topics:   Java Blog

As you probably read in a very recent news post (and if you haven't, you should), we were anxiously awaiting the arrival of our new K130 "Kraken" 8-rotor UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle, although everyone seems to call anything that doesn't have a pilot seat on it a "drone.") Well, the boxes arrived in the office and our technician, Trevor Bennett, has been…

A Toast To Our Friend and Colleague, Crystal!

Topics:   Java Blog

It was enough to drive us to drink (not that we need much encouragement). Our wonderful long-time friend and colleague, Crystal de la Sablonniére, is leaving us to further her education and seek new career adventures...as if working in the Saskatchewan film and television industry over the past couple of years wasn't adventure enough. But we digress. The gang all gathered in the Java…

We thought: "This is perfect timing for Throwback Thursday!"…

Putting SaskTel's "Little Red" into the stands at a Rider game.

For quite a few years now, Java Post Production has produced the opening videos that "start up" the SaskTel MaxTron big screens at Mosaic Stadium before each Saskatchewan Roughrider home game, about 35-40 minutes prior to kickoff.

Throwback Thursday - Java Post "Snatch"

Topics:   Java Blog

A flashback to 2007, this was a little company demo reel intro video, inspired by (read: totally ripped off from) the movie "Snatch," directed by Guy Ritchie. The video was a quick, fun way to introduce the Java Post Production staff, circa 2007. The overriding theme, naturally, was coffee. We're not called Java Post for nothing. Please excuse the standard-definition letterbox.…
