Super 8 video is a format that has always intrigued me. It’s beauty and rawness gives me the same tingle of excitement as Polaroid. However the sad thing is that it seems like this beautiful art form that is, like Polaroid, slowly dying out. But rejoice! London based company Reel 60 are taking steps towards changing that. Their super 8 short films are touching, inspirational and retro in it’s purest form.
OK, maybe I’m guilty of rambling a bit here, but I am just a little bit over-excited to share a couple of their videos with you. Maybe a lot of you won’t have seen any Super 8 movies before…and you really should you know!
First up a short and sweet little promo video…
Followed by some highlights from their 2008 showreel…I feel like I’m actually watching a film from the 1960s!
