The film shooting begins!

It's mid-November and cameras are being rented, and new creative Super 8 films are being shot! We're thrilled to be in the thrust of creative-making magic and wish all the participants happy-times and great success.

We currently have 22 participants for our 9th event. We're happy to reach 30 filmmakers, so if you are a late-comer and are interested in participating, get at us! We'd love to include you in the mix. Reels are due by Jan 8th.

Thanks all!

You can help make the 9th event happen!


We're anxious to kick off the Syracuse OTS8 9th event, however first we need to update our equipment before loaning it out to our participants. Since money doesn't grow on trees, we're reaching out to the general public and dear friends for help. We've created an Indiegogo campaign where you can donate as little as $1 to $50. Please support if you can! Thank you.

Dear Syracuse, 

Hooray, plans are underway for the 2015 9th annual event, but in order for it to happen WE NEED CAMERA'S!  

To ensure that this year's event is successful (and honestly do-able), we need to add two to three cameras to our loaner collection. The past few years we've had the fortune of borrowing a couple of cameras from a local filmmaker, but that option is no longer available and we are desperate! The success of this event relies on providing good equipment for our filmmakers. PLEASE HELP! If you have a Super 8 camera, or know someone who does, consider donating it to this film event. Please email donation inquires to super8syracuse@gmail.com. 

Thanks y'all!
