Love this featurette from the movie “Super 8″ — it’s the prefect primer on the Super 8 format, process, and history, and lovely ode, all rolled into one.

This piece off JJ Abrams’ SUPER 8 Movie Blu-Ray highlights the magic of the beloved 8mm/Super 8mm film formats. It discusses the history of the format, how it impacted the lives of the filmmakers, and how it is still a thriving format today. Shot and directed by M. David Melvin.
