How Popcorn Became The Standard Snack of Hollywood.

Topics:   Articles & links

You love it, you can't get enough of it, you pay waaaaaay too much for it...yes, we're talking about movie theatre popcorn! Those puffy kernels of butter-coated delight have been a part of our movie-going experience for as long as we can remember. But it wasn't always that way. In fact, there was a time when popcorn was considered far too "low class" to be served in fancy-schmancy movie…

Java Post Guys Grab Earl Grey's Cup!

Topics:   Java Blog

Okay, perhaps the title of this post sounds a little strange. What we mean to say is that two of our Java Post Production employees - Randy Shumay and Doug Russell - recently had the chance to get up close and personal with the CFL Grey Cup. When they are not working at Java Post, Randy and Doug work for the Saskatchewan Roughriders' game-day MaxTron crew - helping provide the live production…

Keeping the flame burning for SaskEnergy.

Topics:   Java Blog

During this spell of frightfully frigid weather in Regina, there's at least one person at Java Post Production who is curling up for warmth near an open flame. Our animator, Kevin Drysdale, has been working away on a soon-to-be-released animated web commercial for SaskEnergy, produced through MGM Communications. Here you can see Kevin working on an animated natural gas "flame" that will play a…

Enjoying an animated winter with CUPE.

Topics:   Java Blog

Java Post Production recently completed a third animated commercial for CUPE Saskatchewan, entitled "Scenery." This is a continuation of the animation style previously established in the first two commercials. An extra challenge for Java Post animators Kevin Drysdale and Tomás Ibar was that the animated characters were not just going to be walking or running but, as you can see in the…

Happy Birthday to "Java Jack!"

Topics:   Java Blog

Why is this man smiling? And why is he wearing a silly party hat? Well, he's smiling because today is his birthday. And he's wearing a silly party hat because a couple of his employees had access to Google and PhotoShop. Everyone here at Java Post Production wishes a very happy birthday to "Java Jack" Tunnicliffe, the driving force behind Java Post and our very dear friend and colleague.…

The Lumsden Valley from the air.

Topics:   Java Blog

Back in the 1880s when settlers first arrived in this area located approximately 30km northwest of Regina, they called it Happy Hollow. Now it's known as the Lumsden Valley. (That interweb thingy sure knows a lot of stuff, doesn't it?) Our Java Post Aerial Photography crew was happy (but not hollow) to be out there one sunny afternoon to capture a few lovely views of this scenic, rural area.…

Scenic rural Saskatchewan: A hawk-eye view.

Topics:   Java Blog

There's an old joke that suggests that one of the great things about Southern Saskatchewan is that there aren't any pesky mountains to get in the way of the scenery. For many of us who were raised in the prairies, those wide open skies and endless rural vistas are part of who we are, even if we may be several generations removed from actual rural life. And, like a hawk soaring in the summer…

A Big Javacopter View of the Big Muddy Badlands.

Topics:   Java Blog

The Big Muddy Badlands area is a rugged and beautiful part of southern Saskatchewan, so named because it is situated along Big Muddy Creek...a creek which we can assume was both big and...wait for it...muddy. The landscape here sure puts the boots to the oft-told but incorrect assumption that Saskatchewan is nothing but miles and miles of waving wheat fields. Described as wildly scenic, the Big…

Saskatoon in the Sunshine!

Topics:   Java Blog

As we write this, the "Wintershines" winter festival will get underway in Saskatoon this coming weekend...but, as lovely and fun as Saskatoon can be in the winter, it's even more gorgeous in the summer sunshine. Slightly warmer, too! Earlier this year, we sent our Java Post Aerial Photography crew to Saskatoon and they spent a day photographing "the city of bridges" with…
