About Steve Osborne and The Reel Image...

Super 8 Guru Steve Osborne
Super 8 Guru Steve Osborne

Steve Osborne has been keeping the candle burning for Super 8 for over 30 years, publishing The Reel Image magazine (formerly known as Coming Attractions), for the film format faithful! Along the way he turned his basement into a very sweet home cinema, complete with theater seats on risers and a full-service snack bar, where he regularly screens Super 8 & 16mm features and shorts on his B-I-G screen (that converts to Cinemascope on the fly!), to the utter astonishment of all wayfarers who are lucky enough to stumble upon it! Did we mention his basement also serves duty as a film memorabilia museum, a film vault and a mail order office? Fortunately, his longsuffering wife, Jo, seems content with this arrangement (she has somehow managed to cling to a small corner of the basement for her laundry -- next to Steve's jukebox, of course!), and she wholeheartedly supports him in all his obsessive celluloid pursuits. Also supportive is daughter, Natalie, who assists her father in his daffy dotage with his myriad magazine publishing duties.

Our good pal "Bijou Bob 8mm" Statzer is one of the board's resident kibitzers and pontificates there much and profoundly, to our continual edification!

Great minds think alike???...

Both Steve Osborne's The Reel Image (in the USA) and David Ollerearnshaw's The Reel Image (in the UK) sprung up somewhat simultaneously -- but they remain entirely unrelated to one another (except, of course, for Steve & David's

shared enthusiasm

for 8mm and Super 8!)...

  Be sure to visit David's UK site for his latest box artwork scans and film catalogs, including a terrific nostalgic look at a vintage Thunderbird Films flyer from the 1970's!...
