Buried Alive

2009-04-01 1

Film is not dead, and can not be killed! Try burying it alive, it will survive!

If you though that you could get rid of film you better think again! Try digging a hole and conveniently forgetting about the film for a month!

  1. Roll up your sleeves and dig a hole
  2. When you’re finished with your film roll, tie it up with a string (so that you won’t forget it)
  3. Bury it deep into the ground. Leave it for 4 weeks, allowing the film to ferment in soil.

What do you get? Out-of-this-world, violent, distorted holes and tears.

    Passionate About Film: Since Alive

It aims to provide guidance and information to analogue photography enthusiasts through its website, which has become a platform for showcasing the creativity and techniques of its followers. Since live has also ventured into developing products to bolster the practice of analogue photography and its Bento Film Case has proven to be very useful.
