Super 8 One Reel Contest 2014

Timecode:NOLA’s 4th annual


The Timecode:NOLA Super 8 ONE REEL Contest is an event in which filmmakers have to shoot a movie on one roll of Super 8 film.  All of their edit decisions must be made in camera while shooting, since the filmmaker will not see their film before it is developed (YES! it’s actually on FILM!).  Timecode:NOLA will then get the film developed and transferred, but the first time anyone will see it is in front of a live audience at the premiere.  Even the filmmakers will be in the dark! Flaws and all. Masterpiece or terrible.  These three and half minute black and white silent movies will be accompanied by commentating MC Chris Trew and a live piano player score at the premiere.

One roll of film. Up to three minutes. Only editing in camera. Anything goes.
