Highly experimental super8 film which was screened in Sheffield Doc/Fest - "Attack of the 50 foot reels" session. I have received my film just today. I have done again no editing/corrections, just added the soundtrack (Macera by Koko Uno http://soundcloud.com/koko-uno). Shot on super8 Kodak Ektachrome 64T film with Eumig PMA 860 camera.
What is Attack of the 50 foot reels?
Each filmmaker chooses one roll (50 feet) of KODAK Super 8 film. Tri-x (black & white) Plus-x (black & white) Ektachrome (color) Vision 200 (color negative) Vision 500 (color negative). The filmmakers shoot their films in order, in other words, all editing and cuts that are made, are made IN CAMERA. There are no splicers used. To make sure of this, the filmmakers turn in their "unprocessed" film to Flicker. Flicker hands the film over to Yale film and video for processing. The films are then transferred at Yale to digital video for viewing on the large Egyptian screen. The films are transferred for best color and contrast - NO EDITS or CUTS are made within the content of the film. The filmmakers give flicker their music, soundtrack, soundscape which will be orginal scores created for their film. The sound is started with the first picture, so if it works it works. It's all up in the air, like life, everyday a surprise. You never know what you're going to get. And that's the way it is with the daring and nervous filmmakers awaiting this year's ATTACK OF THE 50 FOOT REELS!
