A comprehensive history featuring photos and a ton of research of the Super 8 cameraAlso features interviews with people instrumental in developing the camera and marketing it, as well as filmmakers like Richard Linklater, who got their start using the Super 8 cameraThough this book is definitely for a niche market, we think it's a relatively big niche, and will be marketing not only to enthusiastic fans of Super 8 cameras, but also to industry professionals, and companies like Kodak, Fujifilm, Dolby, and more

About the Author

Danny Plotnick has been making Super 8 films since the mid 1980s and earned the nickname "The King of Super 8". Not only have his films screened at festivals all over the world, but they have also aired on MTV, on The Independent Film Channel, and screened at the Museum of Modern Art. From 1986-2001 he made over fifteen brash Super 8 films, travelling the country, showing films and conducting Super 8 workshops. His film Skate Witches has a fervent internet following, and in the past several years has been covered in The New York Times, Vogue, and Maximum Rocknroll. His film I'm Not Fascinating--The Movie! celebrated its 20th Anniversary with a series of screenings around the country at various Alamo Drafthouse cinemas. Most recently, Plotnick's films have been sought out for inclusion in the Hugh Hefner Moving Image archive at USC, which has started archiving a collection of punk rock and small gauge cinema. Danny Plotnick is currently the Director of Film Studies at the University of San Francisco. He was also the founder and publisher of Motorbooty, a seminal magazine in the independent music and comics world of the 1980s and 1990s.
