Shane Meadows goes camera crazy

This Is England director scours online auctions for old models

Shane Meadows says his next movie will use a number of different film formats, following a splurge on eBay to buy up old cameras.

“I’ve started to build a collection of old video cameras and I’m aiming to use them on films, Meadows told Shortlist magazine.

“The next film I’m making, Beware The Devil, I want to use an enormous amount of formats, from video formats to film formats – so I’m taking advantage of that to build up my collection.”

His clear favourite is Super 8: “There’s something about Super 8 that no matter who shoots it, it always looks beautiful.”
