Thanks Dad, you're Super (8)

Were back at film school now and the projects are beginning to take shape.

The one we're most excited by is the Straight 8 film competition, the winners of which are premiered at the Cannes film festival.

The college has one super-8 camera but no user guide.
Enter my father.
Although my request was to use the projector that's been in the loft for twenty years, he offered me the use if his camera too, and get this: it's the same make and model AND CONES WITH FULL INSTRUCTIONS!!!

We now have the capability to film films and play them back, old school, rather than having them telecinied onto a DVD.

Time will tell how well we do as a competition entry but one things for sure, it's not the technology that'll hold us back.
