QUOTES ABOUT STRAIGHT 8 / SHOOTOUT
“I started shooting on Super 8 and 16mm. Film is precious. With no video assist you trust your instincts. This is what I love about straight 8, the magic of cinema in its purest form.”
- Asif Kapadia, Academy, BAFTA & Grammy Award winning writer-director.
“We are delighted to be part of presenting straight 8 in Cannes again this year. It’s the most exciting event of the week because the filmmakers see their films for the first time at the Cannes screening.”
- Steve Davies, APA Chief Executive
“What could go wrong? Basically everything...Compared to our daily job on commercials where our aim is to minimise the possibility of failure, we’re so excited about straight 8 being all the time right next to absolute failure.”
- Juha-Matti Nieminen, Exec Producer Directors Guild (Production Co, Helsinki) and Shootout Gold Winner Cannes 2019
"straight 8 is both exhilarating and terrifying in equal measure...there's no post trickery to save you. It's just you, and your idea, exposed for the very first time on a very big screen in the company of some of the industry's finest."
- Grant Hunter, Executive Creative Director Europe, Iris Worldwide (Agency, London) and Shootout Gold Winner Cannes 2018
“It’s a f*cking stupid way to make a film, but I love it.”
- Jimmy Lam, President, Adfest
