Officially announcing the production and entrance to the 2022 Straight 8 Film Competition. This is my third time entering the competition and another opportunity to accept the challenge that comes with producing, from scratch, a motion-picture on a short timeframe.
I will do my best to document the process going forward.
If you want to see what some of the films look like you can visit here. As noted on their website: each straight 8 film is made entirely in-camera on just one cartridge of super 8mm cine film lasting up to 3 minutes 20 seconds. with each pull of the trigger, each shot taken goes into the final film, in the order taken, like it or not. there’s no chance for editing, post-production effects, colour-grading or sound-synching… because we get the films processed and then we just line up first frame of picture with the original soundtrack each entrant supplies blind. the very first time successful straight8ers see even their own film is with the audience at its packed premiere – at cannes film festival and other great screenings
I will be re-visiting and posting links to my previous films in future posts.
