We use Spectra Film and Video in California. We have been very pleased with the quality of the lab, telecine and customer service. There are others around but this is who we like. Cinelicous in California is another lab I would like to try.
Thanks John. We've been shooting some Super 8 too, but would like to find some other labs, thanks for the tip.

There are lots of plugins in the pursuit of getting the film look. If we shoot our Brevis 35mm adapter and mess with curves, we can get some very filmic footage. You can get something that is similar but I find the color depth and the overall organic look to be something I prefer. If Super 8 is the look we are going for. The other dynamic of this is that when you shoot with a Super 8 camera, people just can't help but to be drawn to it. The look the sound, etc. For some reason there is more of a respect factor. This last summer we shot a wedding with a prominent high end photographer and he saw me shooting Super 8 and said "now I can sell you on that" and asked for my card(s). That aspect is impossible to accomplish in post :)

Trying to be open minded

Im glad you are having some success at this, but I have to provide the opposite perspective.

In the age of HD, and someday UHD, it's hard to believe anyone is buying into this.

This is a perfect P.T. Barnum quote situation;
"Without promotion something terrible happens...Nothing!"

and of course
"Theres a sucker born every minute."

What's next, shooting weddings on the PXL-2000?

Jeff:

There is a niche of clientele that want something unique. It is not for everyone by any means, whether shooter or shootee. I had a bride contact me because she saw the Tori Spelling wedding....pop culture dictates many trends. Will it stay? Who knows. I love HD and Super 8 and I believe they can coexist. We show Super 8 footage to people and we know right away if they want it. We never compare HD to Super 8, there is no point. We have also had Brides say they don't want to see themselves in HD...too much detail and these were beautiful girls.

John:

I guess Im a little sheltered since all the weddings I shoot are couples in their late 30s and mostly 40s. They are all pretty conservative. The too much detail comment is on the mark though. I shoot accordingly.

My parents shot 8mm in the early 60s and then I shot a lot of 8mm in the late 70s and early 80s. I just had it converted to digital a year or so ago. I just don't miss it.

But, everything old is new again. Good 8mm footage you have, good luck.

Jeff
