deadline extension + HD scans

we've teamed up with pro8mm in burbank, california to process and HD scan the films for straight 8 2012

and because they're going to do them FAST, we are able to extend the deadline for straight 8 2012.

your exposed, unprocessed cartridge must be with us in london by midnight, april 11th

so you've got just under a month left to make a film - time enough to make it amazing - and you can use the easter weekend to shoot

the deadline for soundtracks is april 18th

final worlwide entry dates are below

remember... we send you the cartridge you film on and you can only enter at

pro8mm are going to transfer the films using their state of the art cintel millennium II film scanner

we almost never bang on about techie stuff, but the level of detail that they get from a tiny super 8mm frame is amazing

the whole crop of films from straight 8 2012 will be in beautiful, 1080p HD

meaning we're even more excited about watching -and making- them than usual
