Many months ago the studio's at Hoge Zand were expanded with ULTRA Produktions, a multi media produktion from Den Haag. It's a co-operation of five creative minds with each his own speciality. ULTRA focusses on making virals, short films, animations and motion graphics for the internet, television and new media. ULTRA Produktions are Gonzalo Fernandez, Patrick Simons, Detlef Villerius, Jasper Masthoff and Bas Tiemes. Their website is in Dutch language only, but you know that moving images speak for themselves.

|The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensenble
Here you can view a clip of TKDE. They were formed in 2000 as a project to compose new music for existing silent movies. Jason Köhnen and Gideon Kiers, both graduates of the Utrecht School of Arts, combined their audio and visual skills to reinterpret classic movies by F.W. Murnau (Nosferatu) and F. Langs (Metropolis).
This clip on the Vimeo website has been shot on super8 that was processed by the lab and scanned by Cineco.

One Dutch internet TV channel is called '101.tv' and there you can view shows or tv program's that are not broadcasted on the regular home channels. Reinier Bruins made a marvellous series under the name 'Soccer Showdown'. (He also made this). Just click on the image to view all the video's online and you'll know whay I am enthusiastic. Or click here to view one episode in higher quality. Super8 has again proved it's wide use and added style quality. Thank you Reinier!

|Procssing news Kodachrome
Many of you allready know this but the lab thinks it can't be told enough times; Dwayne's Photo announced that they will continue to process Kodachrome untill December 2010. What will happen after this we don't know. Our advice is not to take any risk and get you films (all of them, this also means your WittnerChrome 40T) processed much before the end of 2010.
The last 2 WittnerChrome 40T I exposed myself in september 2009 was processed by Dwayne's and, to be honest, I was not happy with the results. The colours are really nothing comparred by the quality of the lab in Switzerland.
By the way, a few months ago Dwayne's increase the price for one super8 film from $10,00 to $12,00.

filmfestival Milan Italy
This weekend on 24th and 25th October 2009 there will be a large super8filmfestival in Milan Italy. The Super8 Lab has been invited and will participate on Sunday's afternoon forum discussion on topic 'the present and future state of S/8 film'.
It prommises to be an interesting talk because the forum members are international and are for example Dagie Brundert (S/8 filmmaker), Thierry Bonnaut (Co-organizer of Cambridge Int’l S/8 Film Festival), Juergen Lossau (Editor in Chief, “Schmallformat”) en Phil Vigeant (Chairman PRO 8). I am really looking forward to chat about the super8 topic before, during and after the forum discussion!

Sync Conversion for Canon Scoopic
have a Canon Scoopic camera? Drop an email info @ kinokone.fi if you
like to become a beta tester. The conversion will be offered for a beta
tester for a very low price.
The price for processing one R25N or one RT200N single8 films has changed to 2500 Yen (about Euro 18). According to Retro8 this is caused by higher oil prices and higher prices for raw materials of chemistry companies. A third reason is definitly the exchange rate of Euro's and USA Dollars into strong Japanes Yen.
More positive news comes also from Retro8 because they can offer the famous sound stripe service again, the price will be 3000 Yen. (All prices are excluding the sending cost). More about Fuji single8 films can be read here.

Claudia and Daniel Wittner from the well known company Wittner-Cinetec, Hamburg Germany have written a marvolous travel report about their trip to the super8 Kodak factory in Windsow USA. Read the German version here. Or read it in English. Every super8 film maker should read it, it has also great images! Thank you family Wittner.

Some articles on the wikipedia are very usefull like this one. It's a super8 notch ruler checker so that you can check you're model if it can auto expose all types of super8 or not :-) Of course Kodak also has info about the cartridge notches.

The new lab is open in The Hague. I have to run tests to make sure all processing values are okay, but in general speaking all is well. I would like to say many thanks to my friends, family and the one I love the most for all their help and support!

Still many costumers ask the lab where and how to get Kodachrome films processed. This complicated and very poluting process is only done by Dwayne's Photo in the USA. They are the only one that offer the K14 process in the whole world. If you have a K25/K40 type super8, DS8, 16mm or 35mm Kodachrome film you can fill in this PDF form and send it together with your film to:
PO Box 274
415 S 32nd St.
Parsons KS 67357
