Super 8 filmmaking is back (and the pros are offering tips) (Wired UK)

Sorry, digital -- a new wave of filmmakers is embracing the analogue charms of Super 8 film. The cameras can be tricky to come by -- your best bet is buying a vintage used model from eBay -- but Kodak still makes four types of Super 8mm film stock, and UK Super 8 competitions are increasingly popular. One such contest is Straight 8: entrants shoot an unedited short on a three-minute Super 8 cartridge, and they don't get to see their finished film until it screens at one of the Straight 8 events. The highlight of this year is a Cannes Film Festival screening.
