Kickstart Film Production

Ferrania_2_crop_smallIn case you need more obsolete technology, a new Kickstarter project by FILM Ferrania aims to restart the old 3M film production equipment in Ferrania, Italy.  FILM Ferrania’s initial film production will be slide film, so if you are looking for color prints, you are out of luck.

I would like to see FILM Ferrania’s financial projections, because I do not understand how the market justifies another entry into the production of photographic film. FILM Ferrania has received support from the Italian government, so perhaps the Italian government sees something I don’t, or maybe they just have too much money laying around.

About Mark Mizen

At Creative Memories, I evaluate photographic products and related materials so that today's memories are not lost to the future and then communicate this information to Creative Memories Consultants and their customers. My interests extend from preservation of traditional photographs to the production of photo books to the expected longevity of electronic image files. My long-term objective is to direct the development of technology that meets consumers needs for high-quality products.
