This short film hilariously parodies that first 8×10 large format experience

Tips & Techniques

At some point or another, many photographers will get the idea into their heads that maybe, one day, they’d like to have a go at shooting large format film. For those who shoot digital, it’s often a far-fetched fantasy. But for those already working with 35mm and medium format film, the idea isn’t quite so crazy.

In this hilarious short film, Jason Kummerfeldt from grainydays beautifully expresses that first 8×10 large format film experience and he does it in the entirely pretentious way that most of us hear from some large format film shooters. And it’s absolutely brilliant.

Shot as a kind of narrative documentary by filmmaker Caleb Knueven, the film is a parody in every sense, right down to its overall style. Kidding aside, though, it’s shot and edited extremely well, too, with a fantastic script. It’s very reminiscent of a lot of the documentary shorts we often see highlighted as Vimeo Staff Picks.

If it doesn’t put a smile on your face, there’s probably something wrong with you.
