Longing for Warm Summer Evenings

Fair at Dusk from patternbased (joseph minadeo) on Vimeo.

This is my first (and so far, only) attempt at filming with Super 8. Having just recieved an eBay purchased Super 8 camera, I wanted to make sure it was in working condition so I loaded it with Kodak Vision 2 500t film and headed down to the Kenmore (South Akron) Summer Fair and shot the full cartridge. In the age of instant digital gratification, it was cool to have to send it away not knowing what was going to come back. I was pleased with the results. It had a nostalgic, almost sad quality. The colors came out vibrant and beautiful though mixing down from Final Cut and uploading to Vimeo certainly drops the quality signifigantly. I played some quick piano and organ that suited the mood of the film.
