Adam. I agree with most of the other replys. Kodachrome will give you a really sharp look, but you will need a lot of light indoors.

Also, the Elmo 1012sxl cameras are really good. I own two of them. They are pretty quiet, you will need to wrap them up indoors.

I shot a feature film on Super 8 back in 94. I made the mistake of using Ektachrome, which is what you want to use if you want the "Super 8mm" look.

I don't think I would shoot Super 8mm again because every time I price it out, it comes close to 16mm. And since I own a CP16R, it doesn't make sense t o shoot in Super 8.

When are you planning on making this movie and are you doing it all at once?

I just quit my job to write a screenplay so I have plenty of free time on my hands. I was thinking about getting my camera converted to Super 16mm, ema il me, maybe I can operate my camera for your next film. I am however, not a DP. Plus, right now I just have an Illumina 16mm superspeed so you would have t o rent lenses, unless I snag a couple more primes in the future.
