Despite recent announcements of product discontinuations to hit the analogue community, it seems that things are finally looking up as *Film Ferrania* recently broke the good news that they are currently “in the process of restarting production for analog film in both still and cinema formats.”

On its FAQ page, the company revealed that it will begin making first test batches “in early Autumn 2014.” Ferrania will be initially producing films in 35mm and 120 for still cameras, as well as cine formats for the Super 8 and 16mm. “These four films are just the start,” it further noted, “We are, in fact, designing our new factory to be flexible enough to produce almost any film format ever created. We will be looking to you, the users, to decide what’s next.”

To amp up anticipation, Ferrania will also be posting a series of countdown posts on its website, where they “will be releasing gems from Ferrania’s storied history.” On its first post was a 1940s short documentary filmed by LUCE Cinecittà about the original Ferrania factory, as well as the hint on “a big announcement coming in mid-September.”

    The World According to Herr Willie: Olympiastadion Berlin

    The 2015 UEFA Champions League Final will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on June 6. It is a place full of history and is also the only football stadium with a blue track course. Some say it is the most beautiful stadium in the world, and I totally agree with them. But then agai,n I might be biased because it is the home court of my favorite team, Hertha BSC Berlin—my blue-white bloodline.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    Falling In Love With The LC-A 120

    There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.
