straight 8

one super 8 cartridge
no editing

shootout

shootout is the opportunity for creative companies to compete at straight 8 for charity - we hold the premieres at cannes ad festival and more…

around 20 companies can enter and they put their company name to their film. the rules are the same: in-camera editing on super 8, no post-production, make an original soundtrack without seeing your film, and for shootout every film gets played at the premiere, regardless of how - or whether - it came out. the max film length is 2.5 minutes. and gold, silver, bronze winners are voted for live at the premiere with the winning companies getting to donate prize money to the charities they choose. and take away our iconic trophies back to their awards cabinets.

and our next shootout is on! get all the info here
