The Straight 8 challenge is to make a 3 minute and 20 second film on a Super 8 film cartridge, without editing or syncing the soundtrack. We exploited these difficulties by shooting every bit of our 1950’s dinner party backwards, from dropping a serviette to sneezing. We emphasised the inevitable blunders by writing in dinner party etiquette faux pas and overlaying a comedic commentary using phrases noted to have been used in the 50's.

This was a 6 hours shoot for a 3 minute film, Thank you very much to our actresses and actors. Ollie Willis, Sara Azmy, Sophie Rogers and Alfie Page.

Film by Sophie Both, Lulu Davey, and Mollie (Laverty) Courtenay.
