PRO 8MM FILM SEMINAR : 4PM-5:30 PM


The 2007 TucsonFilm.com ShortFest will kick off at 4PM with our special filmmaker guests: The PRO 8MM company from Burbank, CA.

PRO 8MM was a very kind sponsor of the 2006 ShortFest, and will expand their support by coming to Tucson — Owner PHIL VIGEANT will conduct a workshop on the professional uses of negative & reversal Super-8 and 16mm film, with samples from Hollywood features, TV spots and music videos. Phil will also show the PRO 8MM line of cameras and explain the wide range of film stock and transfer styles available.

PRO 8MM can handle all small-guage film needs: from raw stock, to processing, to digital fim-to-video transfers. ShortFest filmmakers have utilized them for years and we highly reccomend their services!

ShortFest director Timothy Gassen will also show short samples of professional Super-8 film work he has completed, with practical tips on shooting considerations, budget and production issues.

This workshop is perfect both for beginning and advanced filmmakers — anyone interested in shooting actual film!
