Super 8: Attack Of The 50 Foot Podcasts

I promised Giles Perkins that we'd mention the latest podcast film series at onSuper8.org. This time around, they're highlighting some favorites from the 2007 Flicker Attack in Los Angeles. Each filmmaker was restricted to a single Super 8 cartridge, shot with only in-cartridge editing. Unlike years past, the show was limited to documentary films.

50foot First up is Claudia Bestor & Tony Hall's look at the world of model trains, thanks to the members of the Pasadena Model Railroad Club. Giles describes it as "a retro mix of old school hobby and those who clearly enjoy it and a lovely example of a single cartridge documentary."

If you haven't already explored the onSuper8.org website, I heartily recommend diving in without a moment's hesitation. In addition to high-resolution streaming Super 8 films, they have created a tremendously useful and accessible archive dedicated to Super 8 filmmaking. It might even be enough to drag you kicking and screaming into a new retro hobby...
