Ever wondered how the films we all love and crave for are made? Kodak has the answer, in an interesting 1958 documentary showing early production process of medium format films!
We already know the wonders of film photography and how its unique charm continues to captivate photographers and viewers to this day. We certainly find its timeless beauty refreshing in this fast-paced digital age. But, just how well do we know the rolls that create part of the magic in our analog photos?
In a rare 1958 documentary footage, Kodak gives us a fascinating and detailed view on how early films were made. The video shows the step-by-step process for making medium format (120) films, which were widely used from the 1890’s up to the 1950’s. According to the video information, although the exact source and purpose for the footage remains unknown, Kodak must have used it either as an instructional film for their new factory employees or as a promotional video for the camera-loving public.
Without further ado, we now present the amazing 2-part documentary below!
