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. Telecine, edit, color and VFX by Cinelicious.

Super 8 Family & Travel Film

Posted on Oct 29, 2011 in filmmaking, super 8, travel | Comments Off on Super 8 Family & Travel Film

Over Labor Day, we got to travel, along with our friend Jeremy, to Nevada to visit my dear friends from college, Matt and Jeff, and their baby girl. We headed to the Grand Canyon to go camping–our first time there–and I wanted to commemorate the trip and time with such great friends on Super 8 film.

We are now offering short films for families–to document a new child in the family, a birthday, an event or anything else!

Nostalgia Film Fall Update

Posted on Sep 22, 2011 in filmmaking, general, photography, super 8, travel | Comments Off on Nostalgia Film Fall Update

We have been staying busy at Nostalgia Film as summer turns into fall! We recently shot a yoga tutorial for the web for the lovely Maya at Breathe Eat Dance Evolve, which we cannot wait to finish editing to share with you.

We have been booking weddings for spring and fall of 2012, and are entering the fall 2011 wedding season. We still have dates available, including some availability in 2011, so please contact us.

We also have some sweet family Super 8 film footage we shot earlier this month, which we hope to share soon. We were lucky enough to travel to Nevada and Arizona, and see the Grand Canyon for the first time. We have some HD footage of that to share, too, and I have a couple of Holga photographs from the trip, below, complete with lots of fun light leaks and effects.

Fun Wedding Film Intro: Reservoir Dogs

Posted on Jun 9, 2011 in filmmaking, real weddings, super 8 weddings, weddings | Comments Off on Fun Wedding Film Intro: Reservoir Dogs

We lucked out getting to shoot Matt & Liisa’s wedding! They were a perfect match for Nostalgia Film with their creative and fun-loving spirit, and that allowed us to get some really special Super 8  film. While the groom and his groomsmen were doing their photography shoot with the uber-talented Nichols, the groom caught my eye, and asked what I thought about getting a little footage inspired by Reservoir Dogs.

I am a Quentin Tarantino fan–I must have watched an analyzed Pulp Fiction 800 times for one course during film school–so I jumped at the chance! It was one of those spontaneous moments that you couldn’t plan if you tried, and I love the results. When Mike was finishing up editing their full-length film, we just couldn’t let this film sit unfeatured. So we gathered my film and his HD video, and put together the following, after lovingly watching the Reservoir Dogs scene many times!We added it to the intro of their DVD to surprise the groom.

Let us know what you think in the comments!
