    I just pledged, though after reading the whole (very long) text, it seems like they need 400K (and for some reason are not counting the 9-12% KS and amazon cut off that) only to get the R&D off the ground, and not to actually go into production.
    "This Kickstarter project is not a pre-order initiative. It is an attempt to fund the manufacturing capacity and product design effort for a new photographic film."

    I hate to be a naysayer - but there is no commercial paper working machinary imaginable at the cost basis they are talking about, let alone machines that can do the complex things they want it to (edge taping, folding, splice adhesive etc.,).

    Seems like they are so very early in the R&D stage, this is yet another kickstarter that will get funded with mega bucks only to find after the fact it cannot possibly deliver the promised product for even twice the raised amount.

    I hope i am wrong - and my pledge is on good faith!

    Good luck!

    They've been making images with various versions of their film for a couple years now. I think their budget is sort of middle of the road. They've got fans pulling to the low end as sort of a glorified DIY open source product, and people at the other end wanting abundances of cheap mass produced film. Gotta start somewhere.
