This workshop offers the participant a unique opportunity to learn all the intricacies and possibilities of creating in the Super 8 format, as well as being an introduction to working with film in general. The workshop will cover the various functions of the Super 8 cameras, the types of film, the light meter, and the various processing options. Afterwards, participants will be given a camera for 48 hours to shoot their 3 minute Super 8 film (cartridge time) with live editing in the camera. During the third part of the workshop, participants discover and present the films they have shot.

The price of the workshop includes a black & white Super 8 film cartridge and the rental of a Super 8 camera for 48 consecutive hours. It does not include the cost of processing, scanning and shipping to Niagara Custom Lab (at a cost of $50 per cartridge) which will be charged to the participants.
