I can not do this myself and would appreciate the help. The idea is real simple.

Once I find someone who can help me, I'll provide the single page artwork. All you have to do is shoot one cartridge (the entire 50ft) of this single page artwork - hopefully in good lighting with good results. This will be like a titlercard that I will make with my word processor and mail to you for the filming. It can be a silent film cassette. I'll cover all costs, unexposed, processing, and shipping it to me.

Please email privately to the address below. Putting "filming super 8 for you" in the subject line, please. Can you also include an estimate on film costs.

Hi Chip,

I do a lot of titling work for my films, and there are always a few I have to re-shoot because they aren't framed quite right, or they're a little tilted, or by the time I zoom to get them the right size in the viewfinder they are a little out of focus. So the idea of shooting an entire cartridge on one title is a little bit scary! There's a reasonable chance you'd get it back, see what it looks like and then have to start all over.

These folks do it professionally, and in the long term it may wind up cheaper and less hassle:


Razor sharp Titles/ Subtitles/ Main Credits/ End Credits
Any language, any characters
Super 8 Black & White/ Negative/ Reversal

50' Stock increment.
This service will take approximately 1 week.

All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...
