I submitted a lengthy interview with Guy Maddin to Super 8 Today magazine but since it appears that will never see the light of day I have posted it on my blog: http://www.harthouse...view-guy-maddin

There are many interviews with Maddin but none that I have seen that really dug into his use of super 8, so that's what I did, including adapting his filmography to show the super 8 usage in detail, based on the information I could pry out of him. Not that he wasn't forthcoming, but in some cases he simply could not remember the particulars of this stock or that and how much was used in the final cut. In short, there is a lot of information here that simply does not exist anywhere else.

If you have never heard of Guy Maddin, all the more reason to read the interview. If you are familiar with Maddin's work, you already know what I am talking about when I say he is a super 8 Super-hero.

Rick thanks for sharing this! Too bad it Super 8 Today didn't make it to press. I for one miss that mag. I have seen a few of Maddin's films and I have been impressed.
I love his use of real B+W stock instead of desaturating color negative.
