Anyone know where you can take your edited mini DV tape and get it printed to super8 film?

 

Your first step will be finding a lab that can transfer your tape to a 16mm duplicate negative. Then finding one of the few labs that still make 16 ---> Super 8 reduction prints. Kodak still makes Super-8 color print film (on 16mm wide film that is slit to Super-8 after processing):

I apologize in advance for being so ghetto, but (if it's not a 4-hour documentary) why not just shoot it off of an LCD computer screen frame by frame with a super-8 camera?

 

I assumed Bibleland wanted more than one copy.

 

For a "one of", rephotographing an LCD display should work.

With a single frame method, I suppose you would need to figure out a way to translate the 30-frame video (assuming 60i ntsc) to 18 or 24fps super8. either processing through after effects/magic bullet, or skipping every 4th (?) frame or so...

 

that sounds like a very tedious weekend.....

 

it would be interesting to see if it just looked awful, or if it actually works.

They will do a Super 8 print of your digital file. Color or black and white. Getting a sound stripe is another thing entirely. I have shot off a LCD screen and have had great results. I used Kodachrome, it looked really good. In terms of frame rate; Is your movie in 30fps or 24fps? If the later, then no problem, you will get a one to one transfer. If 30fps, then follow the math given above, I am not sure what it is but the info is out there. Good luck.

 

 

:rolleyes:
