This is a nice little film! Maybe it's old news, but I just now saw it. Nicely done.

That was really cool!

Back in 1978 I had to ride my bike to Fotomat drop a roll or two off, and then ride back a week later and grab my footage.

-I didn't get a driver's license for another year, but I was a filmmaker!

I used Kodak mailers to send mine off for developing. Good times.

Brings a tear to my eye. Great piece.

I'm just trying to think what era these people are harking back to,
having had numerous projectors through my hands I can't
honestly think of one that "flickered" and pictures jumping about
It seems to have been largely forgotten that in the UK we did have
what was known as the "Ten Best"competition set up by the
periodical"Movie Maker" that was held annually and open to
everyone.Indeed some of these excellent films would put the
so called "professional cinema" to shame being beautifully shot
and edited.What annoys me is when the so called pro's try
to laugh off the amateur gauges as "kids stuff" and we've
progressed beyond that.Interesting that 9.5 wasn't mentioned
or the turning over of the 25' spool in std 8mm cameras or am I
going back to far for the patronising b#######!

Buy the blu-ray of the movie "its very good" not only has it got "The 8mm Revolution" but many other special features as well, one being "The Dream Behind Super8"
