It appears as though the folks behind the "Super 8" viral have decided that a good way to drop more clues is to mail out mysterious packages containing film reels as well as flash drives with video clips! What a cool idea, maybe there will be one waiting in my mailbox when I get home ;). No worries though, the guys over at Slashfilm have received their package and have taken the time to post what they know. There is a short video clip as well as some pictures of the film strip and old super 8 film box over on their site, go check it out now!

source: Slashfilm

Update: The video clip that Slashfilm was sent is now available on the s8editingroom.com site. It seems to me that when a person receives a clip they can email that email address with that code (go to their site to see what I'm talking about) and once that video is unlocked it shows up on s8editingroom.com.

Update: Clip #23 has now been unlocked as well. It appears that it was sent in the mail just like the slashfilm one, but this time it was sent to the website io9.com

Update: comingsoon.net has received a new clip.

Update: We have joined the ranks of those sites mentioned above. A package was delivered today containing what appears to be clip #79. Check it out here.

group photo

Thanks Danny for pointing this out. It looks like we have some new information that has been relayed to us through the print out on the STIES site. In order to access this print out, go to the STIES site and move the terminal window out of the way, behind that window is a dialogue box that asks if you want to print a document, press ok and either actually print it or save it as a PDF and open it. If you don't want to do it yourself I've included everything new in this post.

First lets take a look at the group shot that I've posted above. It shows the African American man that we've seen in past pictures as well as 4 other men. This is a little interesting to me because when we were given copies of these scientist/researchers ID badges previously there were only 4 total... Could mean nothing, but still a bit interesting. Other than that I can't really see anything hidden or spectacular about the group photo.

note image

This note was also posted on the print out and appears to be written on the back of the photo itself. I've included a transcript of what I could make out below. I'm not sure what the numbers mean, they could be a lock combination or a password to something, but I'm not quite sure.

The boys and I are planning to infiltrate the compound
in the morning. I had more of those visions in the hospital, like
it was [calling] to me. Everyone there is in danger This must
be stopped. If tomorrow is a failure, you'll need [to find?] the
other piece. You'll need to charge the battery when you find
it, it will probably be dead. Use the equation to set
it to the right frequency.

print out text

And lastly we have some text that was included in the print out itself, which I have also transcribed below. I'm not sure what to make of it. And in case it's confusing to anyone, the group photo was directly below the last line, that's what the person "found". I probably should have included a full screen shot of the print out, but oh well 🙂

I remember that day. I should've helped but I didn't think I could give up my
cover. If I had then, maybe none of this would've happened. But it's good that
you found that, I know you'll be able to help him now when I cannot. You have
to keep searching. I can't hide from the past forever but maybe I can give you a
little more time. I'll try to lose them. If you get a package from me, you won't be
hearing from me again.

I should have known your father would have kept that picture. We were all so young then.

> I know I'm not supposed to post here but I got excited. Look what I found!!

So as always, let us know what you find in the comments!
