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 and into other peoples’ heads

(or what’s the point?)

if you have a straight 8 in you

we want to see it

see all the straight 8 shootout winning films to date and some more in this playlist

remember each one was made with no editing or post-production on a single cartridge of super 8. soundtracks were made 'blind' and the first time the makers saw even their own work was at the premiere.  the max length for straight 8 shootout films is 2minutes 30seconds as the base rate is 24fps.

(for straight 8's annual competition it's 3minutes 20seconds / 18fps)
