Hello All,

I just uploaded my first super 8 short, I shot it last year with Tri-x and Plus-x reversal and my Canon 814 electronic auto zoom, using the cameras built-in auto exposure.

I would love to know what people think, even if you hate it.

It's a fiction piece about a fan of Eric Cantona, and it's less than 2 minutes, so it doesn't outstay it's welcome.

Here's the link:

Let me know if this post is unwelcome and I'll remove it.

Cheers,

Ben

saw this yesterday before your post, really enjoyed it. well shot, especially for a first time super8er, and nice editing.
take it you used the tri-x for the indoor stuff and plus-x for the outdoor??

Tom, thanks alot. I did use the stocks exactly as you mentioned above, although I did shoot a little bit of tri-x outside, it looked quite ugly though, a bit flat, and obviously wouldn't cut together with the plus-x; a great lesson learnt though!

Not unwelcome at all, quite the opposite in fact, a very enjoyable film, it had a real message to it I felt, with the actor being so small.

I would also suggest you put this in the Please Critique My Work section of the forum, therefore a wider scope of people are likely to view this.

Matthew, cheers for the comment, I'm glad you enjoyed the film.

As for the 'please critique' section, I'll head over there now (do you think it's alright to double post in two forums?).
