Hiya Ken,

Lens baby in S8 sounds like an intresting idea.

PL is the standard mount on more modern Arri film cameras.

C mount is a shallow mount near the film plane so it should be possible to get a c mount to PL converter.

Optex make one.

Theres one here from visual products:

Various other places too and they occasionally crop up on ebay.

Hope that helps a little.
