Dominique, too bad for your last trip. Some theatres have available slots on tuesdays and thursdays for small films like ours as these are the less crowded nights for their regular schedules.
Because of the TV deal - broadcast planned for late October/early November - the DVD release is indeed postponed so we hope to have it in stores for Christmas.
It will be a double digipack with lots of extras, including some of the short films. The documentary itself will be available with English subtitles.
I'll post mail order details here.

Jean-Marc, I noticed indeed often that in Paris many intersting programmations are not available on week-ends or even in the evening. It seems that someone somewhere decided that people who work don't deserve to watch specific films. The same occurs on tv channels : interesting programms start after 11pm...

It's been a long and winding road but, finally, "Super 8 Madness!" is starting its TV career soon.
French channel Ciné+ will screen the 52 min. version of our documentary from Sunday, Feb. 28.
Other territories, as well as VOD options, are still being discussed.

The DVD is going into production next week for a late march, early april release (awaiting final date from our distribution company).

As said previously, the double DVD set will be in PAL and region-free, it will play on any computer with a DVD player. SRP should be around 20 euros +s&h.

More details soon.

Dave, I don't understand your question. What Jean-Marc is talking about is a dvd.

Dominique, When I read this was being shown publicly I immediately thought it only existed in a cinema format. All the better that we shall have a chance to enjoy it ourselves.

You should get this on Vimeo (vimeo.com and iOS and Android apps), as a movie rental. This would go over very well on Vimeo, as it is a YouTube like site/service used in the main by Pro, Semi-Pro and amateur filmmakers and videographers, to post their content. They also have movies for streaming rental, mainly independent narrative and documentary, as well as some international and art house films.

I'd pay to stream it, for certain. I'd like to see this.

I finally got my copy and have just watched the film ! I was so impressed to see what amateur are able to do (there are extracts of super 8 shorts). I only watched so far the documentary, Jean-Marc appears in it [Smile] , and still have to watch the 6 shorts that are on the second dvd (yes, there are two discs !). Super 8 Madness is definitly a must have.

Is the one in Paris region free? I will have to do a search to see if it's available in USA or at least a format that will play here.

Thanks Dominique!

Raleigh: the full length documentary should be available on VOD for streaming some time this summer but you'll miss all the extras, including the shorts.

Pasquale: answers to your questions are on this page.

When you open the double dvd box, you see a GS 1200 and the two discs (with a spool looking like design) are on the two arms of the projector [Smile]

I myself have done something very similar to what Jean-Marc has done, not to the professional level as Super 8 Madness but still very watchable. I interviewed most of the guys we made movies with over 35 years ago getting their input on what it was like making super 8 and the problems we had doing them. The documentary runs for about 90mins and has a lot of clips from some of the movies we made back then. I only really made it for a bit of nostalgia, but its still very interesting to watch..of course it has more than enough copyright music in it, but again it is only intended for private viewing.If anyone on here would like a copy then I would be more than happy to make one, the only thing I would ask for is some help on the shipping...depending where you live.

Thanks
Tom
