Did you have it checked?
(Guillotine shutter ?)
Changes in exposure?
Lots of things can cause this including bad processing, however I doubt this is the case for you.
The best thing to do, especially before shooting a film, is have your camera serviced. This is something you should always do after purchasing a super 8 camera. Most of these things in use today were made before I was born! Also, read up on your camera so you know all the ins & outs. Read up on exposure techniques.
Other than that, tell us the circumstances under which it was shot. Maybe someone with more experience will be able to pinpoint the problem.
Good luck on your short. -Jonnie

Either one of those could imply the camera was having trouble advancing the film smoothly.
If neither of those two conditions are apparent, then it could be the result of using a small shutter angle and or shooting at 18 FPS.
Anymore info about the footage or transfer you can share?

I've heard that a transfer at 18fps can give a flicker . Also it's only in the shadow detail .

This is a link to a discussion which may help you about understanding where flicker comes from:
This is a link for good S8 transfer at great price:
single frame transfer
I take no responibilty for these dudes, however. Read it and see for yourself. Hope it helps.
