Why Super 8 is a Must Have in your Film

Super 8 cameras are certainly making their comeback in the wedding and commercial industry. In clothing commercials, vintage shoots, and even wedding films, you can see super 8 making its way into the videography. 

As a destination wedding videographer, this is a must have in my camera bag to capture your wedding film. Turn your video project into a cinematic masterpiece using the contrast of old and new videography. The number 1 question I get asked is…. “Does it look… old?” Yes, it definitely looks old being that its from the 1960’s, and makes a noisy sound when you roll the shutter. Which makes it even more authentic to get to use.

But why the hype? What makes super 8 worth having in your branded or wedding film worth it?

Check out this example of using Super 8 in the wedding film I created for Marcy and Michael. The lovely couple got married in September in downtown Savannah, within the busy streets and peaceful squares. Marcy expressed all sorts of emotions on her wedding day, after having dated her partner Michael, since high school.

The Super 8 film tied into the beauty of her wedding perfectly, adding nostalgia and warmth to their love story.

Super 8 is what you want to add onto your film if you love a little flare. Especially if you want to have a more ​​cinematic wedding videographer, incorporating this element into your high quality 4k footage is the perfect way to have a dreamy and unforgettable film.
