straight 8

one super 8 cartridge
no editing


straight 8 shootout is the straight 8 format for creative companies to compete at our 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.
