We have teamed up with straight 8, after two great years at Cannes advertising festival, to challenge the global ad industry to a super 8 shootout at this year’s CICLOPE International Festival of Craft in Berlin.
Just like the regular straight 8, entrants make a film on one roll of super 8mm cine film, with no second takes, no editing and no post-production. Sound must be original and is delivered ‘blind’.
straight 8 creates a level playing field for experts and rookies alike. And what’s more no-one sees their masterpiece until its packed premiere.
Entry opens on August 8th at 8pm UK time – first come first served. Pre-registration is essential HERE!
Entry is limited to 20 companies working in the global ad industry, competing as companies, for charity. Each company will see their straight 8 film for the first time at Ciclope 2017, Kino International, Berlin, on October 26th.
The cinema audience will then vote and the winning companies get to donate the prize-money to the charities of their choosing.
There is no creative brief and entering companies must source all cameras, crews, props, locations and ideas. This is a great chance to have some fun, making a film in one of the hardest ways possible, raising money for charity and battling creatively with the rest of the industry.
