  Tragically Hip filmmakers say project came together fast © Provided by thecanadianpress.com TORONTO - Making the Tragically Hip tour documentary "Long Time Running" was a shotgun project of sorts for its filmmakers.

"It started on a dime," explained co-director Nicholas de Pencier on Wednesday during the film's red carpet premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

"Five days before the first show," added Jennifer Baichwal, the film's other director.

That's a rarity for the filmmaker couple, who previously worked together on the 2013 documentary "Watermark."

But they say getting the chance to follow the Hip on their defining "Man Machine Poem" tour was an opportunity they couldn't pass up.

TORONTO — Making the Tragically Hip tour documentary "Long Time Running" was a shotgun project of sorts for its filmmakers . Unlike most projects , the filmmakers say this one came together almost on the fly.

The documentary follows the Canadian band as they embark on run of farewell shows and face the reality of Gord Downie's incurable brain cancer diagnosis.

Unlike most projects, the filmmakers say this one came together almost on the fly. Downie's health condition meant the band was never entirely certain if they'd be able to complete the tour.

"Normally there's a lot of preparation," de Pencier added.

"This was: 'No, we're running away and we're joining the circus. We're on tour now and we're filming.' So we had to play catch up and work really quickly."

The duo say knowing the Hip band members personally for 20 years helped them get accustomed to the touring atmosphere.

"It's not that we wanted to do it, it's that we were asked to do it," Baichwal said.

"We all were sort of in this, 'Is this really the right thing to do in this moment?' And it was, and so that's how it came together ... They trusted us."

Intel's Project Alloy VR headset is dead .
Intel won't be releasing its Project Alloy VR headset platform anytime this year -- in fact, it won't be releasing the technology at all. The company didn't elaborate on why there's a lack of interest, but it could be because manufacturers, including Asus, Acer and Dell, chose to focus their resources on building Microsoft Mixed Reality headsets. Kim Pallister, Intel's Virtual Reality Center of Excellence director, has also revealed another possible reason in his interview with PC World. He said the company realized that a standalone headset "isn't necessarily the optimum form factor" and can't compete with the performance of PC-powered devices.
