I was watching the telly the other night and was informed that Super 8 mm film is all gone in Europe. Really? When I checked this out a bit more, it all came down that Kodachrome is not processed anymore in Switzerland. From now on you need to send the Kodachrome film to the US.
So the Super-8 is not dead after all: To be more precise: The amateur film has gone professional. The special look is highly sought by commercial makers but also by directors that strive to evoke a period or to give a different look to scenes.
I was brought up with 8 mm films and when I heard the sound of the projector, I knew there was some quality time ahead, three minutes shelf.
