I will be shooting a short on Super 8 and am looking for a supplier for Super 8 film and a reliable source for processing. I would be thankful for any hint.
(Also would like to know if there is a reliable company doing Super 8 telecine in HK).

I hope I don't have to resort ordering film abroad and doing telecine abroad, that would probably blow the budget as it is a non commercial project.

Kodak has an office in Hong Kong I believe, and they would be the best source. As for processing, check out the Kodak lab index:

The nearest lab to you would be Retro Enterprises, in Japan, and they only do color reversal.

Unfortunately there are no search results for Hong Kong.
I think it will be too expensive for my project having to ship the film forth and back to different countries for processing and telecine, not talking of a possible risk having the unprocessed film exposed to customs xray or isn't that a concern?
