The American rock band, NEEDTOBREATHE took Kodak Super 8mm film with them to document their experience at the 2012 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Tennessee this summer. The band wanted to translate their rock and roll sound into a visual format and chose Super 8mm film as the canvas on which to display the energy of their show.

In their own words, here's why film captures their passion so perfectly.

"The songs on NEEDTOBREATHE’S "The Reckoning" easily translate in a live setting, something that is crucial to the band. The worst thing that could happen is you get done playing and people don’t think about you again. We’ll do whatever it takes to force people to make a decision about our band, whether they love us or not. It makes for more passionate fans."

"The organic, vintage effect we desired can be achieved naturally without hours spent in digital post-production, with the additional bonus that each film is unique. On viewing the footage captured at Bonnaroo, there was an overwhelming sense that Kodak Super 8 film had exceeded expectations, capturing Rock and Roll at its timeless, gritty, festival best."
