Must have voor in de boekenkast of op de koffietafel, het nieuwe boek van een van de koningen van de underground film: Danny Plotnick.
“[…] a coffee table art book showcasing the history of Super 8 filmmaking. In addition to featuring stunning photography documenting the sleek mid-century design of Super 8 cameras and projectors, the book will be filled with vintage advertisements and eye-catching illustrations from Super 8’s heyday. Super 8: An Illustrated History also offers up a detailed history of this beloved film medium. Super 8 burst onto the film scene in 1965, conquering the home movie market. The book explores the research and development that went into creating a brand new format. Not only was Super 8 embraced by suburban dads, the target audience of the format, but it was soon co-opted by the art world, found a home in the punk rock universe, and ultimately seeped into popular culture. Filmmakers who got their start in Super 8 include, Robert Zemeckis, Jim Jarmusch, Todd Haynes, Sam Raimi, Wes Anderson and Alex Gibney.”
