    Film Ferrania: 100 More Years of Analog Film

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...of-analog-film

    Film Ferrania has started a Kickstarter to raise money for the purchase of the equipment to have a sustainable film production company. Rewards include new/reversal color reversal film (ScotchChrome 100, recreated).

    I wasn't around for the 3M/Scotch films but I backed for 2x each of the 35mm and 120 film, just because. I would love to see E-6 reversal films stay alive! I wonder if they could eventually coat/cut LF sheets?

    Just signed up for 4 rolls of 120. Love to have Chrome alive after Velvia is discontinued. At least in MF.

    Well let's not count our chickens before they hatch. Er, well, before they die.

    I'd like to hope that Velvia / Provia will be here for a while, at least in 135/120.

    Agreed. But it would be nice to have a right sized supplier like Ilford for B&W but supplying Chromes.

    I asked them this question 1 year ago and they said yes. Maybe showing some interest by dropping them a line will help.

    Good idea.
    In the comments section they mentioned the possibility of 4x5 in the future. I will encourage that! After I try this ScotchChrome, at least.

    They need to get the old machinery to go for large sheets of film. Their initial plan was to live with the research facility until they realised that chrome film it's not cheap to produce on small scale. Now they have only one competitor in the reversible area, Fuji, and it's leaving the sheet film market. Ferrania people have some niche if they succeed to produce color and reversal film.

    I am curious to read something more about this Scotch Chrome film. The few comments on the quality of the old emulsion I've found so far on the web are not that encouraging
