Ive noticed a few contributors on Shutterstock have some super 8 film footage in their video portfolios. Just wondering how well this sells? I also note that a lot of it is quite old footage - from the 1960s etc (or so it's claimed.) And that makes me curious as to how the contributors obtained the footage. Perhaps they shot it themselves back in the 60s. Or perhaps they inherited it from their parents or bought someone else's home movies from eBay. If the latter is true, there would obviously be an issue with copyright but difficult to prove who really shot the footage in the first place.

I shoot super 8 myself as a hobby. I am considering uploading some of my footage but it's not really all that old - most of it would be from the 1990s onwards. I wonder if there would be more demand for 60s / 70s super 8 footage. Then again, every time you film something on super 8, the footage always turns out rather vintage looking regardless of the decade!
