One Take Super 8 Event
The One Take Super 8 Event (OTS8) began in 2000, with 20 filmmakers each shooting a single reel of Super 8 film, which then premiered to an audience without the filmmakers seeing their work beforehand. All the films were shown as shot. No cuts. No splices. The popularity of this non-competitive festival has allowed it to return each year with more filmmakers participating. To date over 1000 films have been created for over 50 One Take Super 8 Events across North America!

Syracusians (?) can't get enough of a good thing. Plans are underway for their 8th edition in upstate NY, and their 30 spots filled up in record time. I think it must have been a number of people's resolution to shoot more super 8 in 2012 (a sign of the impending apocalypse? perhaps).
This means in the coming weeks 1500 feet of super 8 film will glide through cameras (being intermittently exposed to light), the wonders of which will be revealed in March. We'll have more details here shortly on the screening, or feel free to visit their blog or facebook page.
In the meantime, happy new year to all our OTS8 enthusiasts and here's to another great year of small gauge filmmaking.
And I didn't forget, wrap ups of last year's OTS8 are on their way (sorry, been a bit busy, my new year's resolution is to keep you all updated).
