Kodak announced that it has launched a Super 8 Filmmaking Challenge and is seeking submissions through Dec. 21. The inaugural online contest, which is free to enter, is designed to showcase the range of creative uses of this small gauge format.
Filmmakers are invited to submit clips that were originated on Super 8 film and range from 15 seconds to 5 minutes. Entries will be taken in one of three categories: POV (fiction), action (lifestyle) and flashback (non-fiction).
Once the submission period ends, there will be two rounds of voting open to the general public. The semi-finalist round will begin Dec. 22. The top three videos in each category based on audience votes, along with two semi-finalists from each category chosen by a jury, will be screened at a Kodak event at the Slamdance Film Festival in January.
The second stage of voting will determine the overall first, second and third place winners. A professional panel of jurists assembled by Kodak will select the jury award semi-finalists and winner.
Prizes will range from a Kodak PixPro SP360 Action Camera and a Pro8mm Rhonda Super 8 camera, to film stock, processing and swag, valued at up to $12,500.
