Lensbaby on C-mount Super 8 cameras

I've discovered a wonderful lens called the Lensbaby:


I'd like to experiment with attaching it to a c-mount super 8 camera, and wonder if anyone could recommend the proper adapter? I called the company, and they weren't familiar with c-mounts, only a 'PL mount' for video cameras. Here is a link to their movie lens page:

Another concern of mine is back focus. Would this be an issue since the lenses are not designed for super 8 cameras? For example, I recently used a Bauer wide angle attachment on my Canon 1014XLS and could not achieve maximum critical focus. However, when I used a wide angle attachment produced by Canon, focus is crisp. So I'm wondering about compatibility.

Suggestions, thoughts?

Thanks, Ken
