Making them the way they used to.
(call us romantic)
MK Super 8 Wedding & Event Filmmaking preserves your day through the lens of antique cameras, creating a uniquely sentimental and nostalgic memory. We use vintage Super 8mm cameras and film stock to capture the magic your day. The result is more than just a video; it’s a memento. Our work is more than a documentary; it is a Valentine.
Short and Sweet.
We want to capture your day, bottle it up and distill it down to its highest potency. Shorter films of your event's highlights are more entertaining, powerful, and re-watchable than a comprehensive 3 hour epic. We're making films for your iPad not IMAX. More music video, less Fellowship of the Ring.
We also specialize in unique short films, perfectly suited for anniversaries, wedding announcements, or a one-of-a-kind save-the-date. Couple’s Documentaries are usually 4 to 5 minutes long, often resembling a music video.
MK Super 8 is based in Connecticut, situated uniquely between New York City and Boston. We serve the metro New York City area; Connecticut, Western Massachusetts, Boston and Rhode Island.
How it's Made
Super 8 footage is processed and then digitally scanned and edited, utilizing state of the art post-production tools to add graphic design elements and music. The result is a one-of-a-kind cinematic document.
What You Should Know:
Super-8 was the predominant medium for creating home movies a generation ago but is now, quite literally an antique art form. The movies we make don't just look old, they are actually made on old equipment and obsolete film stock. There is no way to truly recreate the feeling of authentic Super-8 filmmaking with digital cameras, no matter how good they are. The world of film is made up of happy accidents and unexpected surprises.
+All shoots are done with single cameraman,
+Super 8 Film is silent. There is no sound. (we can record sound - ask us how)
+Daylight/outdoor locations provide best filming condition
But unless you're getting married in a cave, we'll be okay.
