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

shootout

straight 8 shootout is an extension of straight 8. it’s our format for creative companies to compete at straight 8 rules 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 for shootout 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
