this would be if you want to project the film as 8mm. yes, you
definitely need the right kind of film for that, as pointed out here.
if, however, you are interested in the "quartered" effect that some
have described here with four 8mm frames appearing inside of each
16mm frame, two of them appearing upside down, you can use regular
16mm film and project it as such. this process does not require the
splitting of the film down the middle nor the extra perfs.
you definitely have some options here.
