    This looks absolutely stunning (i can’t believe this is super 8), the transfer is great. Can I just ask what this was telecined onto? and what camera was used?


    P.S. I just found this blog and am finding very educational. Cheers.

    Hey Ben,

    Thanks for the kind words. Glad to hear the blog is helpful to you, makes it all worthwhile when I get comments like yours.

    It was telecined at our suite using our modified DV8 Sniper Setup from Movie Stuff.

    One word: Wonderful!

    The shots are beautiful and I can’t believe that it’s 8mm…
    Where could we watch a better quality version of this music video?

    Best regards

    Thanks man, Lee Towndrow (the cinematographer) who shot this is a very talented photographer. Check the link to his site posted in the initial blog, click on his name.

    I think a higher res version is online somewhere, though I haven’t seen it in a while.

    You could try here:

    all the best!

    This Video Clip is really nice. Great cinematography, and good transfer though. I’m from France, and I’m wondering if I could send some footage to you?
