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


straight 8 shootout is our format for ad industry companies to compete at straight 8 for charity

up to 20 companies can compete, putting their company name to their film. every film gets played at the premiere, regardless of how - or whether -  it came out. it's scary and raw. the rules are the same as straight 8 - in-camera editing on super 8, no post-production - but the max film length is 2.5 minutes. winners are voted for live at the premiere and the winning companies get to donate prize money to the charities they choose

AND NOW... we are excited to announce three straight 8 shootouts around the globe. these are open now and only 20 companies from each country can enter each one

if you're in the USA, south africa or japan this is for you... the premieres are all before the end of 2018 and to have a chance to enter companies need to register ASAP - check out the links below these flyers....
