Keep us posted on how the magazine is going, sounds interesting.

I used to read all the old Super-8 filmmaker magazines from the 1960's, 70's, etc. that are at UCLA.

I bought up a bunch of those on ebay a couple years ago.
It was a kick reading them, & actually some pretty clever ideas for ultra-low budget gear.
In one issue, they tell you how to do your own pyrotechnics, squibs, gunpowder explosive devices, etc. I mean, they tell you how to do just about everything but det cord!
Can you imagine a magazine publishing that sort of thing today?

Yes, I remember actually reading that and making my own explosives for a model using flash powder, etc. in high school...

I remember the article showing how to make and mount an explosive squib to an actor!

Don't try this at home kids.

They also had useful articles on building your own dolly, doing matte paintings and other visual efx, etc. I used to dream of getting a camera that could backwind for double-exposures. In fact, I built a Lightflex-type box with a plane of glass at a 45 degree angle in a black box that attached to the front of my Super-8 camera to do double-exposures in one pass -- but never used it.
