Hi!

I'm shooting a music video in a couple of weeks, on Super8, and I'm after a look similar to the classic example of Chungking Express.

I'm a bit unsure how to go about this in practice. Do I use undercranked shooting at 6fps and then scan to digital with step-printing (4 to every original) to restore the speed back to normal at 24 fps.

Or is it easier to just scan the film at normal speed and then do step-printing manually in editing? If so, will I get the strobing and blurring effect?

I'm a bit unfamiliar with celluloid, any help would be appreciated.

Best,
Christopher

Ok, I just got a message that the company who's scanning won't do step-printing.

I still hope it'll work by shooting 6fps, scanning it normal speed, and then do fake step-printing in say, FCP by increasing the speed.

What do you think?
