We had a blast with my Super 8mm film camera in high school. This project was our take-off from a classic Gulf Commercial which used single frame animation. This film was done in Fort Dodge, Iowa by Dave Renken and Jim Ecklund (thus R-Eck Productions) and stars a distressed driver, Tom Renken, who finds his car performance improving after Gas attendant, Jim Ecklund adds this special gasoline. I believe this was done memorial day of 1974. Single-frame animation is done by keeping the camera steady, shooting one frame, and then moving the subject slightly before shooting the next frame. 18 frames is needed per second of Super 8mm film. Music was added later.
