Thanks for asking Jonathan. I'm sure each format you mentioned would be considered essential by different people on Frameworks. My essential is super 8. In fact I'm cheekily starting to say now that super 8 is the future film production format! By comparison, 16mm and 35mm will become too expensive to manufacture. John.

Frameworkers, The department in which I teach is in the process of overhauling its classrooms and screening spaces, redesigning them from top to bottom. We're discussing which film and video formats are essential for teaching and for the presentation of work by visiting filmmakers, artists, archivists, and curators. I would be very interested to hear from anyone on the list, but especially filmmakers, which formats you'd consider essential. 16mm and 35mm are givens, as are DVD and VHS. Those of us with a stake in independent documentary and experimental are pushing also for 8mm and Super 8, miniDV, BetaSP, and DVCam. Any thoughts or suggestions, on- or off-list, will be greatly appreciated.
