    Thanks! When I see the whole process I'm amazed we can still get film for so cheap. And even more amazed how cheap it was when usage was so much higher.

    That was fun. Nice clean modern-looking facility. A lot different from pics of certain run down former Eastern European plants with peeling paint and polyethylene sheeting hung to control dust.

    With all the automation involved, I had to go back to 2:03 and look more closely at what seemed to be a PHONE BOOTH that flashed for a moment. Turns out it had a sign on it "book exchange." Made much more sense! Great video.

    I wonder if the scale model was one created by Argonaught Holdings (HARMAN's landlord) for its failed attempt to obtain approval of the Mobberley site redevelopment.

    Maybe the model came from Kodak, planning to infiltrate the compound. Perhaps a new James Bond episode? Kodacolor Goldfinger.
