Hi Charles

the super8 special event is curated by somebody else, this is how it worked in previous years and I quote from LAST YEAR'S press release:

"As a special incentive, Revel-8 will give a free colour Super 8 film to anyone who pre-pays their registration fee Entries must respond creatively and innovatively to this year's theme. Films can be drama, documentary, experimental or animation and need to be shot in sequence on a single cartridge of Super 8 film, lasting just three and a half minutes with no editing allowed.All you have to do is shoot the film and competition organisers will process it, while the talented music composition students at the WA Academy of Performing Arts will compose and record a music soundtrack for the best 20 films. Prizes to be awarded include Best Film, Best Music Soundtrack, Audience choice, Best Super 8 Cinematography and encouragement awards.  The short listed entries will also be screen at the Revelation Perth International Film Festival in July."

so it may not be specifically suitable for your work, however, we also program experimental and hybrid and underground works, so your work could fit into that. email me off list to discuss it.
Jack

> Hey Jack, are you doing something like revel8 for the upcoming festival? I create hand process super8 works that are finished on video...would you be interested in something like that? I have thought of finishing something on super8, but most of my work requires intricate audio, and I've never recently considered doing something silent. The last guy in the states that striped super8 with magnetic soundtracks is long gone I think, plus I remember my teacher Janis Lipzin at the Art Institute, who did tons of work on super8, was somewhat frustrated with that guy's work (the mag stripes tended to fall off given time). Anyway, just was excited when I saw your post. I've never screened anything in a super8 specific program before. Thanks!
