Veronica Mars, Halloween night, (9:47:10 pm)

Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) interviewing a filmmaker, "Loved your movie, 8mm bold choice." filmmaker replies "Yeah".

Super-8mm, the bold choice of a new generation of filmmakers. (not to be confused with those who shoot millions of feet of 35mm and 16mm and thusly allow super-8 to be the bold choice).

You're absolutely certain she didn't mean 8mm video?

haha, or did she mean regular 8mm instead of Super-8?

About two sentences later she uses the word "film" to describe the project.

But it's a fictional project mentioned by a fictional character.

Are you calling Veronica Mars a fictional character?

You shouldn't take your own personal grudges that you create in your own head space and put them out in public like this. Of course this relates to this forum.

Huh? My personal grudges? Am I missing something?
You're talking about a line of dialogue from a TV show....how is it related to cinematography?

Specifically mentioning the words 8mm and calling it a bold choice is noteworthy.

"That 70's Show" never mentioned or showed a super-8 camera (at least I never saw or heard it mentioned on the show). Even though "That 70's show" wasn't about things like Super-8 or 8 track players, it was a show from the 70's that didn't mention or show the primary choice for the average family for filming moving images in that decade.

It's a bit ironic that a show that takes place in the year 2006 mentions super-8/8mm yet a show from Super-8's heyday (the 70's) does not.
