Skeptink | An 8mm Film Short
Updated: Nov 2, 2020
Books can activate the imagination - but are these visions products of the mind or something more sinister?
This gothic horror short was shot entirely on 8mm film, using a Revere Eye-Matic CA5 wind-up camera from 1958. I purchased the camera and then devised this short as a means of testing it. This meant that for the entire shoot, which lasted one full day, we were unsure if we were even capturing any images.
YouTube's compression did not play well with the natural film grain and gate weave, so for best picture quality, check it out on Vimeo. Stay tuned later this week for an in-depth making of, with an exposure(!) of the film process.
