Great video, very inspiring! How cool was it to open it with the guy shooting a Mamiya C-330 too?

I've Noticed !

I while back I saw an article about George Eastmans birthday.
I jumped over to the Kodak site expecting to see some sort of
celebration taking place. Nothing ! ... I could barely find information
about Kodak Film, it's a very sad situation.

We Definitely Need To Spread The Word, And Share Our Enthusiasm !

It really is sad how Kodak seems to have no faith in the film business. You would think that with the number of users being relatively stable (rising even, no?) they would be OK with the market, but apparently not.

This was a real pleasure to watch. I especially appreciated how intelligently done it was -- not pandering, not dumbing it down. Sorry to my American friends, but this could only have been done by the European service...the domestic CNN service would have stupid'd it up a lot more. (and probably added a celebrity who pretends to shoot film, or something).

Bit by bit...I would only have taken out the word "yet" - as in, Film Not Dead...PERIOD!

Agree totally. Suspect Atlanta CNN would have focused on aspects of film photography that emphasized its demise or "drawbacks" instead of its strengths and value as a valid media.

Before everybody jumps to wrong conclusion, ... well, now that they've jumped to the wrong conclusion, ...

The video was made by Cubie King, Editor/Producer at CNN New York Bureau and his collaborator Carlos Martinell.

Note I said Atlanta, Monito. Knew people at CNN/New York--always way ahead of the Atlanta crew.

It's ok. Note that Colin Corneau said "Europe", CGW, and you said you agreed, "totally". I wasn't trying call anyone out specifically to make an example of them; just correcting the impression that anything good has to be European and not US.

Just discovered it some hours ago surfing the web and wanted to start a thread to share it with you, but of course I'm late! Great video. Loved to hear Erwitt talking about curiosity. He's so right.
