A terrific site with lots 'o resources and a terrific discussion forum.
This site is run by Andreas Andersen (a proud Sniper owner!) and originates out of Oslo, Norway.
Bees Knees of super 8 related sites on the web. Also the proud owner of a WorkPrinter-XP!
You'll need to pack a bag and stay awhile to really appreciate all that Michael has to offer.
Pull up a chair and go retro.
Wow! So much gawdamn information on one site. Either the webmaster is a genius or has zero social life. Hmmmm.
That sort of describes me, except for the "genius" part......
Super 8 Processing Lab
The only Kodachrome super 8 processing lab in the world.
Let me repeat: The ONLY Kodachrome super 8 processing lab in the world.
Yeah, you BET you'll bookmark that page.....
Visual Encyclopedia of Super 8
Just plain fun. Every super 8 camera ever made is presented in this excellent web-based catalog.
Check out the section on the awesome Fujica ZC1000 (the name sounds like a motorcycle, doesn't it?)
Anyway, I want another one bad. Wife says no. Ah, but she likes motorcycles. Hmmmmm......
Nah. She'd never fall for it, even if I left it in the garage......
Decent supplier of basic super 8 and regular 8mm editing supplies and odds and ends.
They also have the Fomapan film and processing and some VERY hard to find super 8 sound cartridges
that they keep in the freezer..... or Fort Knox, is it? Either way, the stuff is like gold; damned expensive.
It's a sad state of super 8 when we have to use 10 year old film just to avoid jittery cartridges.
C'mon, Kodak, get a clue.....
Anyway, Rick likes
his leasure time so call them after 2:00 PM CST and ask for a list of what
they have since not everything is on the website.
A terrific source for both old films as well as cleaning supplies for S8, R8 and 16mm.
It's a fairly large site so you have to poke around a bit. Like JAVA Photo above, probably best just to call them and
ask for what you need. They ship pretty fast and prices are reasonable, considering how hard some of this stuff is to find.
There be a whole lot of links on this website related to film production, etc. You'll just have to visit it and look around for yourself.
Bad Movie Report
The bastion of crap cinema run by a very talented writer named Freeman Williams. We once made a really bad horror film
together that was both the high point and low point of our professional careers. He wrote and I pretended to direct.
Our lives have never been the same since.
Run by Jan-Eric Nyström in the suburban wilds of brisk Helsinki, Finland. This guy is brilliant and, apparently, never sleeps.
When he's not doing painstaking animation, building animation cameras or experimenting with 3-D photography, he's building
gigantic miniature rail road trains from scratch! A total over-achiever, look up the word "perfectionist" and there's a picture of Jan-Eric.
I'm tired from just logging onto his site to get his URL.
I need a nap, now.....
Oh, yeah. This is THE best animation discussion forum around. All the heavy hitters are here and log on frequently
to answer questions. The board has a really nice give and take quality where egos are checked at the door.
The archive alone could be the basis for a college thesis.
"Everyone knows you're square, Denham."
One stop shopping for everything Super 8. Info, equipment rental, references. It's super 8, guy.
