Small format magazine ends its run 2 (from the editor in chief)

smallformat Newsletter - last issue December 2008

Dear film enthusiast!
The last issue of smallformat magazine is out.
Smallformat ends its run.
I am not usually at a loss for words. Put me near the computer, and I always know how to start. That usually makes my work easy. Today is different. Today, I do not know what I should write at this point. The last issue of smallformat lies before you. In 2005, I came up with the idea of starting an international magazine for Super 8 and 16mm, along with other small gauge film formats. Since 2004, I had been producing a German version - the now 60-year-old schmalfilm - for Berlin publisher Fachverlag Schiele & Schön. Motivated by the immediate success of the content and layout in the German version following its re-launch, I imagined that it would also work internationally. There had to be a sufficient number of enthusiasts worldwide who were still interested in small format film.
With discriminating subjects and a refined look, we set about catching people who were enthusiastic about chemical film to become eager readers. Many were appropriately inspired, but - unfortunately - not enough. Not enough for this project to survive economically. Fachverlag Schiele & Schön did not even expect to earn money from us. But they didn't plan to lose money, either.
After three years of red ink, the only task that remains is for me to pass along my thanks. To publishers Karl-Michael Mehnert and Harald Rauh, who shared my belief that smallformat had a chance and filled a niche. To Anne-Kristin Rudorf and Eva Hernandez for their inspired layout ideas. To Linda Paesold and Jessyca Gross for taking good care of our advertisers. To Ingrid Bade for the laborious hours spent creating an international subscription database to handle the various payment options. To our knowledgeable contributors. To translator and contributing editor James Grahame for the cautiously translated texts and his own articles. To our advertisers. And to you, dear readers, for your loyalty.
Let's not beat around the bush - this is a permanent farewell. I am heavy hearted.

Jürgen Lossau, Editor of smallformat

New Years time: Moving the Lab to Den Haag
After many evenings and weekends of work I can finally see the end is comming, or in other words 'the new Lab is almost finished' (click image). In the second week of December I will move my large super8 and 16mm printing machines and editing tables to Den Haag. In the weeks around Christmass and New Year I will move all small stuff. The Lab will re-open on 6th of January 2009. Please be aware that:
From 9-11 December I will not process as many films as usual.
From 20th December 2008 to 5th January 2009 the Lab will be closed.
Thank you for all positive comments and please come and visit the new clean space in Den Haag!

In discussions with editor Juergen Lossau we've learn't that since the announcement of the magazine's demise, a number of people have expressed interest in taking out a subscription. would strongly urge anyone with a serious interest in Super 8mm and small gauge film to drop Juergen a line at stating that they'd take out a subscription should smallformat continue.
If enough people do this there's a chance that we might just keep the English version, of what is an essential publication, going. And remember, to quote eighties hair rockers Cinderella, [you] "Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)".smallformat

Reinier Bruins/whateverman made a very special clip for NLconfidential, this is an event by Playboy. All used Kodak 7266 black/white super8 films have been processed by the super8 lab. Films have been scanned by Cineco. I think it looks fantastic (pay attention by the way he used a different format).

small format Small format magazine ends its run (from the editor in chief)
Berlin-based Fachverlag Schiele & Schön has decided to cease printing our magazine at the end of 2008, after three years of publication. small format -- the international journal for fans of Super 8, Single-8 and 16mm film -- was founded by editor-in-chief Jürgen Lossau in 2005. Unfortunately, the number of subscribers and advertisers in this difficult and shrinking market did not reach our expectations. Therefore, economic survival is not possible. The lack of financial support from the only remaining film manufacturer was also a deciding factor behind the publisher's decision.
(The Lab is very sorry that the magazine is disappearing after only 3 years, it was truly a good made and enthusiastic work).

bwff Video to film
If you want to transfer your video to film you can visit the Back and White Film Factory in Ontario Canada. They offer a service for transferring video to small format film which by our knowledge only could be done at Retro8 in Japan (although the website is difficult to understand, so please send them a mail).
[16 October 2008].
IBC Full-High-Definition smalfilm scanners on de IBC 2008
Every year in September you can visit the International Broadcast Convention in the RAI in Amsterdam. The IBC is the major event where you can speak with all large vendors in our film and TV world. I have looked for companies that offer equipment for full high definition small format film scanning. The company from Berlin MWA-Nova who also makes the FlashScan8 did show one system in full HD, more technical details can be read in this PDF file . The Paris company CTM-Debrie showed two working systems in full HD (1920x1080). The Memory and HD Box machines will be offered complete which software and training. You can read more about it on their website. As far as I know there is no company in the Netherlands that works with one of these three systems, so if you have any news please tell the lab.
PS. The only full HD service scanning for super8 in the Netherlands is being offered by HomeDVD. They work with a system they build themselves and I can advise you to read their website because it is full with interesting info about the digital pro's and con's. The other option that I know of for HD scanning can be done at AVP in Munich Germany who uses Rank-Cintel machines.

The construction of the new lab is taking more time than I first thought it would. It's harder than I imagined, running a full time lab, and working in my free time on the construction of the new space. So the progress is going slowly. On the to-do-list for example: installing 11 Tube Lights, continue with painting, and the floor suddenly asked for more attention than I expected. Besides the nice finishing of the doka walls I also have warm and cold running water inside, which was a intense job to finish. To make a step forward I decided to spend more time in the new lab and don't process films in the week from 4 until 8 August. The Lab will send orders and answer all e-mails. Thank you for understanding.

pro8mm_news Pro8mm widescreen modification (source pro8mm website)
The USA company Pro8mm has a new service, they can modify your Canon 1014xl-s super8 camera for the widescreen format! Read their website news: 'Announcing the Canon 1014-XLS MAX 8 Camera Modification: Give your Canon 1014-XLS a giant leap forward by having us convert it to MAX 8, a 16 x 9 widescreen format. This is the second super 8 camera we have introduced with a widened gate (Classic Professional MAX 8 in 2005) so that filmmakers can be HD ready. Widescreen images are essential for remaining competitive in a HD world, and shooting super8 in the modern 16 x 9 aspect ratio allows you to edit your super 8 images with other widescreen formats. The exposed film is then transferred on our custom modified widescreen gate, available on our M2 Scanner or Y Front Ursa Diamond Scanner, giving you 20% more image on the super8 frame. The Max 8 1014-XLS conversion includes gate modification, the adding of 16 x 9 framing lines to the viewfinder, removing the internal 85 filter which causes image degradation, increasing the take up torque so that the modern, thicker film stocks are less likely to jam, as well as re-calibration of the exposure system so that all Pro8mm film stocks will accurately read the exposure from 50-500 ASA. This complete modernization package is available for $995.00. We currently have some MAX8 1014 XLS' in rental only for $300 a day, or $250 with any all inclusive film package.'
Maybe this is a very nice option and the Super8 Reversal Lab is considering to get one 1014xl-s modified by Pro8mm...

Steenbeck super8 editing table
Thanks to film maker Tobias Schmuecking the lab could get their hands on a nice Steenbeck super8 editing table. This machine needs a good maintenance job (in the new lab) but it's definitely worth the effort. The lab owns 2 other super8 editing tables but because of a weak light source and unstable images the lab doesn't use them.
[16 June 2008].


Construction started
Last week I have started to build the new Super8 Lab in my hometown Den Haag. The space is about 70m2 and situated on the first floor. The building houses artists only. I will build the lab in my free time with the help of friends. All normal activities will continue. The idea is that I will move the lab in August/September (details follow). If there is a delay in work I will inform every costumer about this in person. Check out the page for some fresh pictures.

Time to announce a super8 filmfestival, this one is called Flimmernacht. It is held in Germany. These are the ingredients; you take 1 super8 cartridge, 1 super8 camera and make 1 film that has been edited inside the camera. You send it back to the festival and they get it processed (I know I have seen this somewhere else?). Once that has been done they ask a musician or soud designer to finish the super8 into something fantastic! At the end you will be at your own film premiere without knowing if it would be worth it!

Workshop by Metamkine
The French live performance pioneers of Metamkine will hold a 3 day workshop focusing on live presentation of 16mm film and working with
sound. Christophe Auger and Xavier Querel are masters of exploring multiple projection possibilities while Jerome Noetinger investigates
electro-acoustic environments. The WORM.filmwerkplaats / filmlab and CEM soundstudio belong to their area of work. The results will be
presented live in WORM on Tue. 29th jan. More information:

Portraits: the Starting from Scratch collective film
Point of departure is a series of directors’ portraits shot at the festival (on 16mm) that will be developed, processed and edited in
the laboratory of the WORM.filmwerkplaats. A project that will enable each of the filmmakers to communicate his own technique / signature
in a practical and active way to the other filmmakers using different film stocks and relevant applications. The results will be presented
in suitable surroundings during the festival. The project will be realised in collaboration with artist / cameraman Ben Rivers and artist / WORM.filmwerkplaats regular Pim Zwier.

Starting from Scratch / WORM.filmwerkplaats residency
For many film makers (especially outside Europe) a lack of facilities means they cannot make the films they really have in mind. The
Starting from Scratch artist-in-residence programme wants to support film makers to realise and present the projects they dream of
filming. Three film makers have been invited (Anuradha Chandra, Masha Godovannaya and Amanda Dawn Christie) in order to spend a month in Rotterdam making use of the unique facilities and with the expert assistance of the WORM.filmwerkplaats. The results will be presented
during the festival.

We hope to see you in Rotterdam

First I would like to say a special thanks to all my costumers in the past year(s). 2008 will bring new fresh energy. If all goes well the lab will be moving from Rotterdam back to Den Haag somewhere around April/May 2008. This is also the city where I personally live. I can get a beautiful new lab space in the center of Den Haag. My neighbours will be a two friends who also work with film and video [more later] and we plan to join our forces.

Cinevia super8 cartridge
In film theater Babylon Berlin was a small filmfair before the 'Tick8' competition announced who all the lucky winners were. GK-Film's Gottfried Klose together with film partners Dr. Florian Kaps [L] and Frank Bruinsma [R] showed a prototype of the new super8 cartridge. On the outside there is not so much to see because it still has to fit in super8 camera's :-) But on the inside several changes have been made to optimise the film run as much as possible. Of course one of the most asked questions was when this cartridge will finally come on the market. The answer from GK-Film is that they we are still in the testing period. We have to finish all these tests first to be sure that this cartridge can fit all the high demands! Maybe this years Christmas will be a very extraordinary one.

News from Japan
During the German Filmbörse in Waghäusel -held on 21 April- I had a nice talk with mister Tak Kohyama from Retro Enterprises in Tokyo. He told me that a new Fuji single8 film will be released soon. This will be a Fuji Astia 100F Daylight balanced single8 film. Togehter with the 'old' news that Fuji has decided that they will continue to produce single8 R25N and R200N for another 2 year made my day. Astia 100F promises to be a good emulsion that will close the gap between 25 and 200ASA filmstocks on single8.
Second news from Retro8 is that they have a new service. They offer to put your video-tape onto single8 film! Details? Ask Retro-8!
