Searching around my house, I stumbled upon a Bell & Howell Super 8mm film camera, a Bell & Howell 8/Super 8mm film projector, a Sixon light meter, a few projector bulbs and a 3 way Super 8mm/8mm/16mm Cement Splicer. All work. So I figured my next project would be someting small and shoot it on super 8mm.
I've noticed Super 8 is a little hard to come by in my part of Canada. Looking at Kodak's new film stock lineup I found out they don't ship to Canada, but I believe B&H carries the stock I'm looking for.
How much stock would I need? I assume two or three. Would it even work with an old Bell & Howell?
But im in a little island off the east coast of Canada. The closest 8mm developer is probably in Halifax. Is it worth to buy the film if I can't get it developed around here? Should I pay extra to ship the film there and back?
And Finally the sound.
I want to use some narration for the project. This can be put over after. But how do I put both film and sound together? This part I don't know much about I grew up in a digital world. Any suggestion about this would be awesome.
Let me know if it is even worth my time.
I really have gained an interest in this kind of filmmaking after finding this stuff.
