When I brought the projector from Ebay, bundled with it were not one but two super 8 feature films. I am now the owner of the Sergio Leoni iconic western Fistful of Dollars. In German. Unfortunately as the projector did not come with a manual I can't sample the pleasure of a badly dubbed Clint Eastwood. Also included was Close Encounters of the Third Kind (this time in English). Love a bit of seventies Spielberg. Give me Richard Dreyfuss as a protagonist over Tom Cruise any day of the week!
Welcome to my blog charting my adventures in super 8 film making. I work as a digital video editor/ camera operator but wanted to re-discover the wonderful world of celluloid so got on Ebay and brought an Agfa Moviexoom super 8 camera and Sonnector LS projector. I have shot a bit of super 8 before using a Prinz Corvette (snazzy name) my friend lent me but i'm looking forward to getting to grips with the Moviexoom as it has a few more bells and whistles.
The aim of all this is to document my experiences shooting with super 8, show any good films I find on the interweb and link to any good resources I might stumble across. I may post stuff unrelated to super 8 from time to time if the mood takes me.
