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


thanks to our ace partners who are helping us all make straight 8 what it can be

we're very excited that Jameson First Shot are partnering with us for our cannes premieres and after-party

for the second year cinelab are processing and scanning all of your hard work with love, tenderness and chemicals

Jameson First Shot

Jameson First Shot is a great challenge for filmmakers. now, in its sixth year, this competition has seen its winners direct the likes of willem dafoe, uma thurman, adrien brody and maggie gyllenhaal in their short films

and they're all produced in los angeles by top producer dana brunetti (house of cards, social network, captain phillips)

and this year the great brit actor, dominic west (the wire, the affair, appropriate adult), is in the hot seat

all you have to do is write a great 5-7 page script that dominic loves by june 1st and see what happens next. fortune favours the brave - more details here

cinelab london

we're delighted to have partnering with us again cinelab london and thank them for putting their generous support to straight 8 for us all. 

cinelab are one of the major european labs and the most comprehensive in the uk - processing negative film from super 8, to 16mm, to 35mm and now even 65mm. 

check out some recent credits here

current credits are literally too secret to mention. suffice to say your films could be sharing chemicals in a warm bath with some pretty amazing rushes (they have tapering devices which means different gauge films can roll into and out of the same bath)

for those of you able to drop off your film in person there may be the opportunity for some tours of their facility which is well worth doing

the people at cinelab aren't just in the business, they are passionate. they own more super 8 cameras between them than any sane people should
