Spring Super 8 News You Can Use

We have worked on so many really cool projects the past few months we want to share with you!  The latest trend we see is in producing  super 8 clips for big brands telling their story on #Instagram.

As Instagram Marketing for business continues to take social media by storm ,  brands are looking for new ways to create  compelling visual stories  to grow their fan base and following.  This idea that a well polished visual style that is unique and sets brand A apart from brand B by doing something visually cool on the platform has found it’s way to  #Super8Film.   The format is a perfect choice for creating stunning short clips that give a strong visual punch.

Pull & Bear Clothing Super 8 Campaign

One company that has a distinct vision for communicating with their followers is Pull&Bear, a Spanish Clothing and Accessory Company (same owner as Zara.) They focus on casual, laid-back clothing and accessories for young people with a very urban style, at affordable prices.

To reach their target market, the company hired filmmaker Logan Rice to produce more than 20 super 8 film clips. Shot on his Max 1014xls, processed, scanned and color corrected at Pro8mm with Phil Vigeant, these clips are awesome.

Logan says “I chose to shoot this project on super 8 because they wanted all of the content to feel very organic and light hearted, which is exactly the vibe the super 8 gives off.  It  feels natural, it feels real. The film grain and tones mixed with the handheld “on the go” shooting style gives you something you can’t emulate shooting with any other format. Film filters and color correction can only go so far, so doing this entire campaign on actual super 8 film made the most sense and I was more than happy with the results and feedback I got from doing so.” 

Here are links to the 5 Pull&Bear films he directed / shot on super 8. They’re all finally out and can also be found on INSTAGRAM. Here is a link Here’s a link to Logan’s  website and Instagram.

Monochrome Watches Campaign

Another team of filmmakers are Alex Safdie + Kyle McKenzie for MVMTThey shot using their Beaulieu 4008.

Kyle + Alex teamed up in their first co-directing gig for the MVMT campaign ‘The Monochrome Project #CementYourLegacy

They did a four part series using three separate mediums shot in downtown Los Angeles. 

A secret ingredient of theirs is to make sure everyone on set is having a good time. Good vibes only. 

While working with some friends of theirs, they accomplished a unique look. Links to preview their work below!

We're looking forward to seeing their next MVMT campaign, which was shot on Super 16! Stay tuned...

Blink 182 Music Video 
"Home is Such a Lonely Place"

This just in from filmmaker Jason Goldwatch. The #super8musicvideo he shot for #Blink182. #HomeIsSuchALonelyPlace. 
Pro8mm processed and scanned the film. Jason states “the video for "Home is Such a Lonely Place" was probably the easiest we’ve ever filmed. All we had to do was be ourselves at home with our family and friends, as we prepared to leave for tour Consequently, it's also our most personal and honest videos, and one of my favorites.

The first video Pro8mm did for Blink 182 was in the early 1990's for VH-1 #BehindTheMusic.   We have done MANY videos for this band over the last 3 decades. They still love that #Super8Film vibe!

“To Be Or Astronot To Be” by Leon Dewan

This just in from filmmaker Paul Sanchez Yates. Processed and scanned at Pro8mm and shot completely underwater in a very cold swimming pool for clarity with a Eumig Nautica, the only underwater Super 8 camera! Tri-x for the black and white. Ektachrome 160 for the color.  Very cool!
