    The Last Movie Film Lab

    This was just sent to me by my filmmaking buddies.

    Not good news.

    You have to click the damn ad away, sorry, I don't know a better link. But it's a very interesting read.

    I'll look for a better link!

    Yale Film Lab is a funny place. They only process 16mm and 8/s8mm film and they seem busy. I recently took a documentary class that required shooting on Super8 b&w reversal, and most of the film was processed at Yale. It amazes and pleases me that there was the interest and fascination with the young crowd to work with these materials, and that there is still an infrastructure to support them. The other students were agog at the whole technology of motion picture film from exposure to projection.

    Fortunately the article's title is NOT about "the last film lab." There are still a good number scattered across the world, and though declining, real film is still a very viable acquisition material. One of the big shifts is the rapid move away from film print distribution, it was the striking of prints that used millions of feet of film, and that is ending. Hopefully as time goes on boutique labs specializing in camera negative processing will survive, at least until Kodak stops making MoPic film. I believe they are the only manufacturer left.

    Thanks for a wake up call, Randy. I have about 3K feet of 16mm stock in my freezer, that should sell asap. I'm not surprised that FotoKem is still in operation (they were v. solid), but Monaco (in SF) already altered their ops to digital....and ouch for the Bay Area.

    What's a FB ? :>) :>)
