    Hello, I'm trying to locate some old Super 8 film footage of New York, preferably home made stuff, a tough call but you never know........

    I've tried e-bay without any success, does anyone know of any Super 8 film archives, or anything/anybody which may help?

    none of new york, but I have tons of films directed by yours truly on super 8 from when i was 9 to 12 years old....the "special effects" are amazing lol....ketchup for blood, real snakes on my friends "dead" bodies, fireworks to simulate a volcano....of course, I always get the good roles like the evil scientist.....my friends used to get so tired of me bossing them around for my movies and take off.

    Why not emulate it in AE? Pump up the saturation (Kodachrome), shift a little to green (aging), throw in a little blur (small frame resolution) or grain if you have it, and slow it to say 18fps. Also check the collections of the Library, or whatever historical society, maybe they will let you video it off a projection screen. Tell them it's a "school project", or go for broke an try to get the nonexclusive rights.
