We hope all is going well and you are either wrapping up or shooting your films. We just wanted to remind you all of some dates and a few notes:
1) ALL FILMS ARE DUE BY MONDAY, MARCH 16TH! The exposed Super-8 cartridges can be dropped off at Funk-n-Waffles (727 S. Crouse Avenue in Campus Plaza). If you cannot make it there please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org so we can make an arrangement to drop off the film. Please write your name on the film cartridge.
2) Please submit a 1-2 line synopsis with your film so that we can prepare the screening programs. Also provide the correct spelling of your name for the title slides. Download the "Movie Info Form".
3) If you want to have sound with your film (this is highly encouraged), you may provide a live soundtrack at the event, or a prerecorded track to play simultaneously with your film. You will not be able to view your film before it is screened publicly, so make your soundtrack accordingly. A roll of Super8 film runs approximately 3 minutes 30 seconds. All prerecorded soundtracks must be submitted to Funk'n Waffles by Friday, March 27th.
4) The date of the event is Saturday, April 4th, 8:00 pm. Filmmakers will get into the event for free, $3 for everyone else.
Organizers are looking for event partners and sponsors. We are putting out the call to any organization or company that would be interested in helping to support this year's much-anticipated event. Sponsorship is needed to assist in the procurement of equipment, marketing materials, and technical assistance. All will be acknowledged on event materials and at the event. If you have any ideas or are interested in sponsoring, let us know! More official-like information and materials (sponsorship form, etc.) can be provided.
This year we received 17 film entries! We have some returning filmmakers from previous years and some folks who are brand new to the super-8 medium. So, without further ado, here is the list of this year's One-Take Super-8 Syracuse participants! (not in screening order)
Kyle Corea & Stone Dow
Mark Povinelli (2 films)
Kyle Corea & Mike Broderick
Erick Ferris & Gordon Brookes
Phillip Loeb & Mike Canale
Ken Keech, Vanessa Rose, Brendan Rose, Jason & Briana Kohlbrenner

This year looks to be great. Remember, join us April 4th at Funk-n-Waffles for the screening!
Since Super-8 cameras are not provided, there are some film makers that do not have their own and will need to borrow one. Is there anyone who has an extra one to lend out? Or when you are done filming would you be willing to lend that one out?
please add a comment with your email for someone in need to contact you. Or email us at super8syracuse.gmail to figure something out.
