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.
