In an effort to delay the death of traditional film, Hollywood has agreed to buy enough film to ensure that the last remaining supplier, Kodak, will remain in the business. The agreement makes no mention of what the studios will actually do with this film, given that the film industry has almost entirely switched to digital. As part of this agreement, Kodak will be making approximately 450 million feet of film per year. Here are my top 10 suggestions on what to do with that film:
- Shoot 450 million feet of Paris Hilton.
- Circle the earth three times.
- Travel 1/3 the distance to the moon.
- Take a photo of everyone on earth.
- Cover the Capitol in film.
- Use it for executive bonuses.
- Deliver it to Donald Trump.
- Donate it to Goodwill.
- Celebrate with a big bonfire.
- Recover the silver – at least it has some value.

Pay congress with it since they are doing such a superb job!
This would be such a superb subject for satire, Dr. Mark, that I actually checked out the links to see if it was for real, or you were just doing your usual excellent satirical commentary! – Fawn
11. Use it!
I’m not here to start an argument, just to say this: digital’s not in danger of going away, but plenty of people prefer to shoot on film, and they should have the option to do so.
