Super 8 is Super Great

I love Super 8. The timeless, scratched flickering, quality that the ridiculously expensive method brings about. Amazing tones, grainy textures and uncertain luminousity. I can imagine thirty years ago film studio engineers sitting around pumping hundreds of dollars into trying to work out how to make their videos cleaner and crisper and less dirty. Funny then that nowdays film studio engineers sit around in similar ways with similar budgets trying to work out how to make videos less clean, blurrier and more dirty. Hours of fiddling about with new editing equipment and late night coffees recreating things that were once a problem. Make up your minds people and let these editors get a good night sleep in, huh? If it weren't so expensive it'd be funnier.
