One Take Super 8 Event

The One Take Super 8 Event (OTS8) began in 2000, with 20 filmmakers each shooting a single reel of Super 8 film, which then premiered to an audience without the filmmakers seeing their work beforehand. All the films were shown as shot. No cuts. No splices. The popularity of this non-competitive festival has allowed it to return each year with more filmmakers participating. To date over 1000 films have been created for over 50 One Take Super 8 Events across North America!

The first Fort Lauderdale/Miami show (2006) coordinated by filmmaker and FAU Film Production Professor Shane Eason spawned 20 films, some new and some programmed from previous shows. It had approximately 125 attend and held an impressive festive atmosphere. Further, in 2009, a second festival had 24 films produced and 150 people in attendance. The 2009 festival also garnered a new, standalone, event title, The 1:1 Super 8 Film Festival. Although a new festival was established, the manifesto and concepts from the original would carry over.

One cartridge! One take! One night!

This year marks the third 1:1 Super 8 Film Festival in sunny South Florida and it’s already a hot topic of discussion among artists yearning for the sight and smell of super 8 film. So grab a camera, get some celluloid, and shoot for the 2010 1:1 Super 8 Film Festival.
