The summer camp movie space camp movies were born in Canada in 1967, when an aspiring filmmaker named Kevin Macdonald decided he wanted to make a feature-length film about a summer camp, and a space camp in particular.
In the early days, Macdonald was working as a cameraman and set designer for a Canadian television series called The Kids’ Zone.
Macdonald’s goal was to make something that would appeal to the young, who are fascinated by camping.
His crew consisted of a group of Canadian actors, writers, and animators.
“We made it very, very clear, we were making a film for kids and we were going to make it fun and we weren’t going to do a very serious film,” Macdonald said in a 1996 interview.
“And we were a group that was very much committed to making it a real film and very committed to trying to make the story fun.
So the first film was called Summer Camp and we made that a success, and then we went to the next film and made another success.
And then we made another film and we continued to make films.”
The group was soon working on more films, but the most important thing to Macdonald and the rest of the group was that they could make a movie.
They had a few ideas, including a camp that included a “honey pot,” a camp where people would eat their own honey, and so on.
“It was a very simple idea, which was to put a bunch of kids in a room, a big room, and have them work together, with each other and with other kids, and to have the kids make fun of the other kids and the other campers, and the adults, and talk to each other,” MacDonald said in an interview.
That is the spirit of the film camp, where everyone’s role is to create fun and make it entertaining.
A lot of the work of making the movie was done by Macdonald himself.
“The first two films I did with the group were the first two shorts that I did, Summer Camp And The Honeypot,” Macdonas son Mark told The Globe and Mail.
“That was a film I made on a cassette tape, and I got a cassette and I was so happy with it that I bought a new cassette tape that I didn’t want to use, and it had all of the shorts that we made in the summer and all of our movies and all our ideas and stuff on it.
And it just started to fill up.
I was very happy with that film.
And that film was really, really good.
And so that film just kept getting better and better and I felt like we were starting to get a sense of what the camp was all about.”
Macdonald had a dream, a dream that was not to be fulfilled.
“In the summer of 1967, we had a meeting and I told my wife, I told her, I said, ‘I want you to get me some friends who are friends with each of the people I’m working with and I want to make this a movie,'” Macdonald told The Toronto Star.
“So I told them, I asked them to come up to the house in Brampton, Ontario, and that’s when I told Kevin I was going to have to stop making the film.”
Macdon had been making a few short films in the late 1970s and 1980s, including the campy comedy The Campsman and his short-lived short film The Jungle Book, and he had also made several feature films.
“When I got to Canada and I went to work at CBC, I had a very specific role for me in this project,” MacDONas son said.
“Kevin Macdonald would be there, he would be directing and he would help me with the story.
And I just started making films.
And the story just grew and grew.
And eventually it became this whole film, a movie that I felt was kind of my idea, but it just kind of grew and it became more and more complicated, and eventually it kind of became a film that was so long, it just took me forever to finish it.”
MacDONAS’ MOMENT OF TERROR The summer of 1969 was the worst year of the summer camps’ existence in Canada.
“There were six or seven people who had died in the camps that summer, and people would just lay in their tents,” Mac DONAS’ son Mark recalled.
“I would be sitting there with these people who were dead and I would just think, ‘Oh my God, my God.
What have I done?’
“They were really depressed because the summer had gone by really quickly,” Mark recalled in an April 2012 interview with The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. “
