Don’t panic, the organ is just having a good cleaning after 28 years. Dodington and Dodington from Alymer Ontario is on campus taking the organ apart, cleaning and fixing anything that needs attention and re-installing the bits and pieces. They should be done by the end of the week. They will be focusing their attention next week on the “Echo Pipes” that have not worked for quite some time. These are located over the entrance as you walk in to the main chapel. The organ dates back to 1926.
About a week ago, Ridley College was transformed into a movie set with trailers, lighting and cameras all over campus. It was all for the filming of ‘Dead Before Dawn’ – a fast paced adventure comedy that follows a bunch of college kids as they accidentally unleash an evil curse that causes people to kill themselves and turn into Zombie Demons, AKA ZEMONS!!! It’s Canada’s first 3D Feature Film. The film is funded by TELEFILM Canada (The Federal Government Feature Film Program). Emmy winner Christopher Lloyd recently joined the cast that includes Devon Bostick and Martha MacIsaac.
Devon Bostick plays Casper Galloway – you might recognize him from ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ (check out Ridley in the background):
Filming took place in 2CB, the Library, outside of the Iggulden gym and the quad area by Merritt and AB houses.
The film is directed by April Mullen and was written by Tim Doiron and is co-produced by the duo. ‘Dead Before Dawn’ is due out next year. For more information about the film check out their website: http://deadbeforedawnthemovie.com
