Film Processing

What options are available for processing Super8 or 16mm film?
1. The Cheap way: hand processing is an artform in itself which involves filling buckets with photo developer and transferring undeveloped
negatives through the chemistry by hand. Hand processing results in scratches, variations in tone, and other unexpected visual effects. PAVED
has chemistry for processing negatives this way in Black and White only. We do not supply reversal bleach for making true positives. Watch
for regular workshops on this subject.

2. The Pro way: sending your film away to be processed is the professional approach for a good quality picture. At the end of this page is a list
of companies across Canada that process Super8 and 16mm film.

What options are available for transferring Super8 or 16mm film to video (also called telecine)?
1. The Cheap way: point your video camera at the projector screen and press record. PAVED Arts has equipment to perform this type of telecine
for free for members. Ask at the equipment desk about this procedure. We have both 16mm and Super8 projectors.

2. The Pro way: See the list of companies at the end of this page for information about their telecine options. There are less expensive realtime
recording options and more expensive frame by frame scanning options.
