Hi all,

Just want to share what i found on the net.

Since I am really a fanatic with marketing Films releases, I found some item released by this company after 8mm era.

They are VHS releases :



The company still kept the blue box similar to 8mm box, even with the yellow/red strip.

Moreover, the back cover still has "opti-color" logo that we found on 8mm (just a gimmick to compete UFA color which actually did not have any meaning)

Apparently, the company is still running a business by releasing DVD (although not sure if the same owner), as the below photo:


No longer with blue box....but see on the bottom, it still has the bird company logo as it is in 1970s......

What a wonderful history.

Very interesting - I'd gained the impression that they had entirely gone out of business, which is clearly not the case. I wonder if the management might have any of the 8mm negatives or other relics from the old days... maybe a box of 'Grease 2' prints!

Marketing Film are still alive and well and trading in there native Germany!!

They have put out some excellent dvd releases in the past years in lovely book style packaging such as CLASS OF 1984,THE SOLDIER,ALL THE COLOURS OF THE DARK.

They actually still use the same style font and eagle logo too.

So you see there is life beyond 8mm!!!
