What is Super 8mm?
The digital age has created a culture of perfection and instant gratification, Super 8 offers none of these.
Kodaks Super 8 format burst onto the movie scene in 1965. Designed before the age of digital video these silent cine cameras shoot on 50 feet reels of 8mm wide motion picture film.
Cartridges and cameras were designed for ease of use and Super 8 quickly became the tool of choice for the home movie maker to respected film makers and artists alike.
Once exposed the film is then developed and watched on a film projector or telecined (scanned) to watch in a digital format.
Because of this super 8 regularly appears in feature films, documentaries, TV productions, music videos, advertising campaigns and in recent years experienced a renaissance within the wedding market rebelling against “long, boring, cheesy wedding videos”.
