Pick Of The Day: One Take Super 8

Super 8This festival’s been around for 13 years now. It sees local filmmakers avail themselves of retro super 8 camera technology to make short films in genres like narrative, documentary and experimental. The films harken back to old-style home movies, but in this age of CGI special effects and mega-million dollar Hollywood budgets they also strip film-making down to its rawest form.

One Take Super 8 goes tonight at the RPL Film Theatre at 8 p.m. Unlike regular rep programming, there is no admission charge, but seating is limited so make sure you get there early. For more info visit this website.

One thought on “Pick Of The Day: One Take Super 8”

  1. The most unique and exciting aspect of the event in my mind is the fact that the films were all made “in camera”, meaning, no editing/cuts/splices! The filmmakers sequence and plan the films while they’re shooting and only see the results at the screening along with everyone else, and find out then if their films went as planned.
