Straight 8 2016
After a three year hiatus – the last competition took place in 2012 – Straight 8 is back.
The concept is simple. Cartridges are mailed out to entrants who then shoot whatever they choose. Entrants also provide a soundtrack. Straight 8 then develops the film, scans it and syncs the soundtrack to the first frame. There is no editing – only in camera – and there are no viewings until the screening night.
If you want to take part, registration closes on 28th February. Entry costs £88.88 in the EU and £82.07 for the rest of the world.
To see what else you might be up against, here’s a taster from 2012:
