Rosco 5 win Gold at Straight 8

January 21st, 2020

Big congratulations to Rosco 5 for their Gold win at the Straight 8 Shootout.

The boys represented Spindle in the shootout with their film, For the Record, which follows Gideon’s unusual world record attempt. The shootout rules are simple but fiendishly difficult: in-camera editing on super 8, no post-production, make an original soundtrack without seeing your film, and for shootout every film gets played at the premiere, regardless of how – or whether – it came out. It’s a great event to be involved with and we look forward to the next one!
