I really enjoyed watching that. Gives me hope for the future of our craft.

Anyone care to help me so I can see this video? See my earlier post

Really high quality work and nice to watch. Shooting film is presented like an epic action.

Unless I am doing something wrong this video(what's it called?) does not appear to be available in the U.K. The link provided takes me to the International CNN- nothing there I can see- but based on the thread I assumed it was U.S. so clicked on this and nothing there either that refers to film.

Can anyone help? Thanks


Odd. I'm in Spain and no problem so far.

Try this link - I think that it may be their "standard" viewer:

Thanks Matt I did eventually find it. It was a long way back in the video list and many videos from the one mentioned by a poster about the dog with a note which I had assumed was next to it.

It serves as a useful reminder that analogue still exists and has attractions which may not be on the latest generation's radar

Great video but CNN's website sucks.

Finally found it but had to figure out their website to do it.

Nice piece. Makes me proud to do what I do. Too bad its great content is trivialized by sandwiching it between a half a minute of advertising and "Up Next: Dog left at stranger's house with poignant note".

I'll take anything that reminds people 'hey, you really can use that old camera, and Big Business won't send you to the gulag'.

Thanks for sharing, great video!

The producer of this needs a K1000 sent to her or him on our behalf for making such a balanced video about our craft! Maybe, I bet the producer already has a ton of film cameras....only a real analog gal/guy would produce something so brilliant...or maybe there is such buzz in NYC? Anyone in ATL (i.e. CNN corp ofc) or anyone in NY know who produced this? Is he/she a Apug'er?

It's also a great subliminal ad for Ilford - which I'm all for! (and for clarity, I doubt Ilford had anything to do with it).

I just wish Kodak would pay some bucks for similar product placement!

Eliot Erwitt, *sigh* my hero!

A very nice video. Hopefully this will help get out the word.

Glad to share, although I am sure someone else would have posted it within minutes had I not done so!

I am thrilled that PrintSpace and Hashem (the lab manager there) got a plug in this video. Hashem is perhaps one of the most generous and kindest people you could ever meet. When I first learned how to develop my own B&W and print in a darkroom, it was at PrintSpace. Hashem's help and advice was enormous. It was at a time when I was weighing whether to continue with film or make the total switch over to digital and also about the time I first joined APUG. Armed with Henry Horenstein's book, the hours and days I spent at PrintSpace learning B&W developing and printing changed my life. I hope anyone in NYC who needs a darkroom can visit there and support this great, great place. I don't think there's another place like it in NYC.
