straight 8

straight up filmmaking since 1999

one super 8 cartridge no editing

we help people get films out of their heads and onto a screen

if you have a straight 8 in you

we want to see it


each straight 8 film is made entirely in-camera on just one cartridge of super 8mm cine film lasting up to 3 minutes 20 seconds

every shot you take will be in your final film in the order you take it and there's no post-production effects or colour-grading

you send us your cartridge for us to process and you send your original soundtrack separately which we then line up with the first frame of your film

the very first time successful straight8ers see even their own film is with the audience at its packed premiere - at cannes film festival

+1000 films have been made for straight 8 this way since 1999.  here is a small selection.  see more on our vimeo and youtube channels and see how some great straight 8 films were made on our making-ofs page
