Please order your stock with us by quoting the number.

1. Color Negative Stock. Sensitivity 200ASA/ISO. Tungsten Stock.

This film is very suitable for beginners as well as for pro’s. It’s very forgiving in case of wrong exposure and great for shooting in very birght rooms, close to windows or during the day outside. Kodak Stock.

2. Color Negative Stock. Sensitivity 500ASA/ISO. Tungsten Stock.

This film is very suitable for beginners as well as for pro’s. It’s very forgiving in case of wrong exposure and great for shooting at night or in darker interiours. Kodak Stock.

3. Color Reversal Stock. Sensitivity 50ASA/ISO. Daylight Stock.

Similar in characteristics to a slide film. Very brilliant in color, very rich in contrast, very fine grain. More a film for people, who know already a bit about shooting on film – even small exposure mistakes can lead to large mistakes and can not be corrected later. “Classical Super8 Look”. Stock based on Fuji Velvia.

4. Black and White Negative Stock. Sensitivity 400 ASA/ISO.

This film is suitable for beginners as well as for pro’s. It is very forgiving in case of wrong exposure and good for shooting during the day indoors or outdoors.
More experienced people can talk to us before shooting and if needed push the stock one stop in order to shoot with the resulting 800ASA/ISO even at night or in very dark rooms without lights. – Stock: Kahl NP27

5. Black and White High-Contrast Title Stock. Sensitivity 12 ASA/ISO

Only to be used by very experienced filmers. Needs a lot of light. And if we say a lot – we mean: a lot. Only suitable for cameras with manual apperture setting. This stock leads because of its very high contrast to a look, similar to charcoal drawings. Wrong exposure leads very quickly to totally black or entirely white images..

Democratic principals on Super8

Individual perception of the structure of society is shaped by personal experiences. Thus the principles of democratic action such as self-determination, equality, individuality, community, freedom, responsibility or fairness are interpreted in different ways by different people. Some of these diverse perspectives are to be captured on film in the course of the project. Particular attention will be paid to the aspects of age-specific characteristics, lifelong learning and cross-generational exchange of experiences more
