Thanks for the great responses. Dan, im using the vx2k and mk1. Sounds like you know my pain all too well! Good idea re the test. That will be my first move. Chris, Yep sounds look like there isnt really a shortcut. Time and money being my only option. I agree regarding fake super 8. It stands out like a sore thumb to me as well. Will, no I wont be out putting for projection. This film http://www.thrashermagazine.com/articles/videos/jim-greco-s-year-13-film/ was shot on 16mm and the skating was shot hd then transfered to 35mm negative..
Hi Guys, I am interested in making a skateboard film shot entirely on super8. I have previously used super8 in skate films but just to cut in some scenery and lifestyle shots for aesthetics. The problem is, filming the actual skate tricks is hard because it can take the skateboarder many tries to land the trick. this wouldn't wouldn't work with super 8 for obvious reasons so I am wondering if there is a way to shoot the tricks in regular hd and transfer to super8 film? Even just filming the hd monitor with the super8 camera? any experience or ideas? Thank you in advance!
