Schmalfilm Schmalfilm magazine did mega transfer test
In the upcomming Schmalfilm issue nr. 6-2010 you can read the results of a massive super8 to DVD transfer test they have done. This lab that co-operates with Cineco B.V. will not be listed as far as I know. Too bad since we're curious about what they would have to say.

We have made adjustments on our e-mail server because the amount of spamm was becomming more and more. You can reach the lab only via: post at super eight dot nl. And if you want to make a PayPal payment the address is: paypal at super eight dot nl.
Or -to make it easier to understand- nothing changed for you :-) But from now on if you did not get an answer via e-mail after 2-3 workdays please contact the lab again via mail or phone to check if we did get your first request. Thanks.

Friedemann Wachsmuth

Super8 Notch Ruler improved
Mr. Friedemann Wachsmuth on the picure made a new an improved Super8 Notch Ruler.
'Which film speed is that Super-8 cartridge notched for? Is that Tungsten or Daylight stock? Which ASA values can my camera read correctly and does it move the Wratten filter out automatically when daylight stock is used? Since more than 30 kinds of Super-8 film are available today, most made in small batches, these questions are more pressing than ever before. The "Notch Ruler" that has been around for a while has some flaws, simplifies too much and thus leads easily to incorrect results. This is why I made two new, simple tools to clarify a confusing topic once and for all. Find out all about your favorite film stock now and understand how your camera is interpreting its notch code
'
A brilliant and very good new ruler, thank you Mr. Wahsmuth. Click on the image to go to the website and download the ruler yourself.

workshop

Learn Ektachrome processing on 13th November in London
An intensive, hands on course that takes you through the Super 8 camera, stocks, shooting film, and hand processing. Examining cameras and their features, film stock, exposure, light meters and filters, participants shoot the new Ektachrome 100d super 8 stock and learn how to hand process this film using the Lomo developing tank. The course also looks at work made by artists using Super 8, focusing on its aesthetic qualities and flexibility of shooting, and ends with a screening of the films made on the course. You may wish to use your own cameras on this course, although no.w.here does have some basic models. Please note that spaces for this workshop are limited to six only and are offered on a strictly first come, first serve basis.

Do-it-yourself colour processing on the web
German magazine Schmalfilm will write a story about do-it-yourself super8 processing at home in their upcomming last years issue. My lab is supporting do-it-yourself film processing at home. It becomes much more fun using super8 if you can manipulate the look of your film with chemistry, but please be carefull. During the super8 workshop at the Shoot-Me Film Festival I also spoke about home processing! Watch a starters movie on YouTube.

HMD Home Movie Day 2010
The famous Home Movie Day will be held on several worldwide location in Australia, Canada, Finland, Belgium, Germany, USA and the Netherlands on 16 October 2010. The day is a tribute to the amateur film makers all around the world and the idea is that you can bring you're film to a location and screen it in front of collegue film makers and share thoughts. I estimate that the edition in Amsterdam will be the most gigantic of them all at the EYE-Filmmuseum.

Foma

Fomapan cine films
We all know that Kodak is not the only manufactorer of black and white cine films, don't we.
Foma (Czech Republic) is making a very nice b/w emulsion too, specially if you look at the price. A Dutch company Kentmere Benelux has started an online sale for this type of 100ASA cine reversal films. Here more info. If you live in Amsterdam by any change you can also get them from Parallaxe. As you notive the lab is happy to forward you to these sale point as we don't sell the film itself (althou we can process it very well). [Click to enlarge].

shoot-8

Shoot-Me festival Den Haag
'You probably know them well, those grainy bits of footage that immediately give you that nostalgic vibe: that's Super8-mm film. Super 8 was developed in 1965 and heralded as the new film format for home video. Of course we've all moved on since then, but festivals such the Flicker Festival Los Angeles and the Cambridge Super 8 Fest prove that the medium is still alive and well, and even growing in popularity. Interesting fact is that one of the world's few Super8 labs can be found in The Hague. All the more reason for SMFF to create a program about Super 8 for Cinecity The Hague! Super 8 is hardly used by amateurs nowadays, but is still used quite a bit by music video and independent film directors, and even by the mainstream movie world, where it is sometimes used for filming flashbacks, or to capture a certain vibe. Frank Bruinsma, of the Super8 Reversal Lab Nederland, is the Super 8 guru in The Hague. He'll give you a complete workshop on Super 8, explaining everything from filming to producing the end product. You will also get to see the 8mm-movie 'Licht' from Andre Schreuder, which was selected for the prestigious Quinzaine des Realisateurs in Cannes. Schreuder will also be present to talk about his film. We will show you a compilation of footage shown at the Flicker Festival and the Cambridge Super 8 Fest and Roy Rezaäli will tell you all about Chill'm Guerrilla, a movement that started in The Hague that aims to provide an alternative to the expensive Hollywood methods of filmmaking, and promotes the use of and interest for Super 8. Members of Chill'm Guerrilla have created two short movies especially for SMFF 2010.'

EYE collection seminar
On Thursday, 14 October, the Collection Dpt. of EYE-Filminstituut Nederland (formerly Nederlands Filmmuseum) organizes it's annual collection seminar. This one-day seminar for our peer group (film archivists, film scholars and students, etc.) is meant to reflect on and discuss issues, questions, and/or problems the institute’s archivists encounter in their work.
This year, our seminar will be devoted to home movies and other amateur film materials, in the morning sessions, we will reflect on the very existence of amateur films in a film archive.
In the afternoon sessions, another aspect of ‘displacement’ will be addressed: home movie making in a colonial setting.

There is also a message in newspaper 'de Volkskrant' today; 'The child has to like to participate in the film... Please send an e-mail to super8@328stories.nl and mention where you live, what are you're hobbies and write something about you're family.'

dry film Scanning shrunken 8mm films in 2K
Jean-Pierre Sens from Amsterdam's SuperSens B.V. build himself an optical scanner -a kind of mini Oxberry- and it's working for over one month now. He built the data frame scanner to be able to transfer 'really bad, acid smelling (vinegar syndrome) and shrunken films' with it. Click here for more details and to view some examples. The scanner make a photo still of every frame of analogue film, so it doesn't use video recording. The additional benefit was that also new shot material on super8 and 8mm looks much better (than SD), so there's more detail in film than one might expect :-)
(The lab is actually pretty sure that data transfers of small format films will be thé future and standard for telecine in the near future, 'video scanning as we know it' just isn't good enough in a time where everything becomes HD).

Shirn-Kunsthalle

Celluloid and nothing else than
Until 29th August 2010 you can visit a very interesting exhibition about the celluloid film material in Frankfurt, Germany. In the Shirn-Kunsthalle only image matters! This show has a subtitle 'film making without a camera' and it shows how artists have experimented from the beginning of the film to make movies without the use of a camera. What they did use was pencils to draw straight onto the film, or paint, or charcoal, or printing techniques and many other simple ways just to create images, and nothing else than images. Everybody who has warm feelings for the abstract film making is almost obligated to visit Frankfurt before the 29th of August. You can view a trailer here and click the image to visit the exhibitions

Saturday 12th June a Filmlab screening!
What's 'Filmlab'?
A film screening with short films: documentary, features, experimental, abstract… recent work, old work... no theme, the choice for the program is made on the very objective "filmlab/impressive/unknown” criteria. We never change these. The tradition is that we never announce the program up front. For those who are curious… We've got a world première, abstract spectacle, on the opposite we show subtle visual pleasure, an unknown classic, new talent and more… makes you go crazy? You better!!

7285

Just arrived; the new Kodak Ektachrome 100D type 7285 super8 film
This morning the new super8 film has been deliverd by the lab: Kodak Ektachrome 100D type 7285. This is a 100ASA daylight balanced film. So when you are shooting outside you don't use any filter (which often means that you have to set the camera to 'lamp' sign) while indoors you should put a 80A or 80B filter in front of the lens. Is seems all complicated but it's as simple as riding a bike.

The price for the new Ektachrome 100D type 7285 cartridge is exactly the same as the Ektachrome 64T type 7280, the film that has been discontinued.

Price:
Excluding processing € 12.20 [each, excl V.A.T.]
Including processing € 22.10 [each, excl V.A.T.]

And as if it has been calculated by Kodak this processing lab has sold out all Ektachrome 64T, so from today on the lab can only sell 100D Ekta. [Click to enlarge].

10 year LAB

10 years LAB!
The Super8 Reversal Lab celebrates it's 10 years aniversary this month because
April 2000 was the last time that I've worked in paid employment. Since that day I spend all my time working for the super8 laboratory. To be honest I did not expect that my lab would survive for such a long time, and therefore I am so happy with the loyalty of my clients among which are film makers, individuals, artists, principals, students, collectors, amateurs, archives, and companies. This is also a moment to thank everybody who contributed in any way to the success of this lab, again thanks to all!
As most of you know I do my "work" with great dedication and love for the celluloid, and it is my intention to keep on going for a few decades more.

cannes Light by André Schreuders in Cannes
Now during The Director's Fortnight in Cannes you can view the film Light by André Schreuders. This 15 minute film was shot on Fuji Velvia 50ASA daylight super8 film, Karel Doing was responsible for the beautifull camera work and the S8RL has processed all cartridges. The 2K HD scanning was done by Daan Müller of HomeDVD. The editing was done by André and when he finished Cineco made a 35mm film copy of it (a so called film recording) so you are watching a celluliod print, not a video projection. Reasons enough for you to see this film when you're in Cannes at this moment. Click the image for more info. It's probably the first time that my lab's name will flash on a big screen in Cannes :-)

End of life End of life for Ektachrome 64T
Some super8 makers are wide awake since they wrote the lab that Ektachrome 64T is being replaced by Ektachrome 100D by Kodak. So we called Kodak and they confirm this news. The new emulsion 100D is not available at this moment and 64T is still available as long as supplies last. The lab has positive experience with 100D that is made by Wittner Cinetec. But it is still a disapointment that 64T (an old emulsion by the way) is being cancelled. As we all know things that are gone most often never return. And we already had to say goodbye to 40T this year. On YouTube Kodak put a small video about the use of 100D.

ftp clients

FTP
From now on if you ask for a telecine of you're film to DVD, miniDV or DVcam you can ask for a free FTP download. Video editing studio André Bijma and sound studio debun Studio from Nico Bunnik share their FTP server with the lab.
In the end you will receive you're DVD or video tape at home but in the mean time you can download you're video files as data files (.mov or .avi) from the FTP server. This can save you time. This service is free of charge and I can not give extended support on it. It's for those film makers who do not own a DVcam player for capturing but do know how to deal with computers. Finally I want to emphasize that the best SD telecine is done to DVcam tapes because they are proven to last a long time. [Update November 2012, service has been cancelled].

HM73

Pro 8 Data Framescanner Müller HM73
Since for about a week it is possible to order the new HM73 frame scanner from Daan Müller via the website pro8.nl (it has no relation with the USA company Pro8). This machine was build after many years of testing.
Mister Müller has succeeded to build an affordable frame scanner that can deliver high quality images. The HM73 works on a resolution of minimal 1K, it is possible to change the camera and get even 2K or 4K. The frame scanner is remarkable because it doesn't use a video camera to capture the images in real time (with all it's cons). In stead it comes with a Pike industrial camera, the images are flashed separate and recorded as single frames. The frames are turned into a video sequence afterwards. Second thing to notice is that a laser is being used to keep the film steady, so no need to use sprockets or a claw. It can handle all formats up to 16mm (8mm, S8, 9½, 16mm en S16mm). Please check out the data on the companies website here.
