Super-8 film - What is it?
Whenever you see stylish home movie footage from the 1960s and 1970s, the chances are it would have been filmed on Super-8mm Cine film as this was the main medium used at the time. At s8films we use Vintage Super-8 cameras and original film stocks combined with modern digital transfer techniques which gives your wedding film
a truly authentic Vintage flavour.
Why use Super-8 now?
Super 8 has the unmistakable “look and feel” of real movie film. The film stock manages to make people and events look glamorous as well as being highly flattering — which is why cine film is such a great medium for weddings.
What is Cinematic Video?
Cinematic Video is a style of filming heavily influenced by Cinematography techniques used in themovies. Storytelling is told through the use of creative videography and expressionistic filming. For us, your film is not just a wedding film, it is a piece of cinema and we endeavor to make all parts of your day look as filmic as possible.
s8 films are based in London, but shoot all over country and
travel to all parts of the world to capture your day for you!
