You may think that digital cameras have killed off film, but it’s not that simple. Check out the following two projects.
You may already have heard of The Impossible Project. This is a group of former Polaroid employees who are attempting to reopen a factory in the Netherlands and produce new instant film. It certainly is an enormous project, but there are a lot of Polaroid fans out there who are rooting for them to succeed.
And then there’s the flickr user Dark Orange, who has posted this set of photos of a machine a friend is building to manufacture film. There aren’t a lot of details, but it certainly is a beautiful contraption.
