What is Super 8mm Film

Super 8mm film is a motion picture film format that was popularized in the 1960s and 1970s. Its a smaller format compared to the standard 8mm film, and offers higher image quality.

Super 8 film initially became a popular choice for capturing wedding videos due to its portability, ease of use, and aesthetic qualities. It has a distinct nostalgic and vintage look with its characteristic grain, vibrant colors, and occasional light leaks. These visual characteristics evoke a sense of nostalgia and romance, making it an especially appealing choice for capturing special moments like weddings.

Storyteller Co uses a combination of vintage Super 8mm cameras, each resulting in it's own unique footage featuring varying frames, capture styles, and film artifacts.

What is 16mm Film

16mm cine-film is a motion picture film format that uses 16mm-wide film stock to capture images and create motion pictures. It has been widely used in the past for various professional filmmaking purposes, including movies, documentaries, newsreels, and more.

The allure of 16mm cine-film lies in its capacity to deliver superior image quality and versatility when compared to Super 8.

With its wider 16mm film gauge, 16mm film offers greater resolution, clarity, and detail, making it an attractive choice for a variety of filmmaking applications, particularly love celebrations and wedding captures. 16mm cine-film combines excellent image quality with the medium's unique texture and grain structure, creating a distinctly sharp, yet simultaneously dreamy, organic, and timeless aesthetic.

Storyteller Co utilizes a vintage 1920's magazine style movie film camera to capture all 16mm film.

What Is Hybrid Wedding Videography?

Storyteller Co's hybrid Super 8/16mm film & digital wedding videos combine the sentiment and nostalgia of film with the convenience of digital technology. Creating a unique, memorable, and truly heirloom keepsake that can be cherished for generations to come.

Here's how it typically works:

- Super 8/16mm Film: Super 8 and 16mm film are analog formats known for their distinctive, nostalgic look, and archival capabilities. They offer rich colors, grainy texture, and a vintage aesthetic that our couples find truly helpful to elevate the emotion of their wedding celebrations with a timeless sense of romantic nostalgia.
- Digital Videography: In addition to shooting on film, the duo also offers collections including the addition of high-quality digital footage. Digital captures allow the benefit of immediate gratification and the ability to capture audio alongside video.
- Integration: In their hybrid wedding films the duo captures all moments of the wedding day on a combination of analog and digital mediums, relying on a documentary style of capture and an intuitive eye for sentiment - capturing moments in a way that evokes memories of classic home movies, elevated with the significance and romantic nature of a wedding celebration. After the wedding events, the analog film is sent to the duo's preferred lab for processing, developing, and scanning. The digital film scans and digital footage is then combined during the editing process. All collections include an analog only cut, alongside any digital deliverables, film scans & archival negatives.
- Editing and Post-Production: During editing, the footage is carefully selected and arranged to tell the story of the wedding day. All film scans and digital footage go through our carefully developed and hand-applied color correction process.

How Much Real Analog Film Will I Receive?

Storyteller Co uses primarily Super 8mm & 16mm analog cine-film to capture their wedding films, placing no limit on the amount of film used to capture the day's events. Digital footage is captured alongside analog throughout the day's events and selectively interwoven between the analog mediums in the post-production process to create the duo's unique hybrid-medium wedding highlight films. All collections include this hybrid highlight, delivered alongside a slightly longer 100% analog film highlight. Analog film deliverables also include all cine-film scans (2k - 4k resolution digital scans of your cine-film captures) professionally color graded in-house, select Polaroid prints/scans, and archival film negatives (delivered with processed film re-spooled on the reel it was shot on, along with tips for safe storage).
