    My thoughts on this are, a revolution isn't created overnight! Give it time and it will grow. I've been into this darkroom stuff for about a year or so, and frankly I haven't built up enough experience/time/resources to start making emulsions. HOWEVER, it's all part of the master plan as I see it. Someday, when that's imperative, people will start doing it.

    Despite the simple enjoyment I get from learning all this stuff, in the back of my head is always the idea that someday film will be gone and I and whoever else is on board must be responsible for doing it ourselves. I think I'm not the only one.

    Rest assured, if your work isn't celebrated now, it will be in the future. Don't you know, NO ONE is appreciated during their life!

    Seriously, a quiet revolution is brewing... I'm only 25 and there are many others around my age that have the same maniacal attraction to analog photography. Give us that information and we've got at least another 50 years to put it to use.

    From tonights London Evening Standard newspaper:
    "3D films lead the way as cinema ticket sales go through the roof"
    "Cinema tcket sales have soared this year on the back of hit films in digital 3D.....Box office takings up eight percent on the same period last year......ticket prices higher for 3D to reflect higher cost of making them...London now..with almost half its cinemas having at least one [digital screen].

    An article on the upcoming Harry Potter movie only coming out in 2D at first has lots of comments saying that 3D is overused and not worth it. The article is on Yahoo and you can click on thumbs up or down on the comments. The anti-3D comments have lots of thumbs ups.

    digital projectors not needed for 3D

    if Photo Engineer had the good luck of visiting Photokina this year he would have seen tucked away in a far corner of the massive Fuji display a glass enclosed case exhibiting the range of Fuji color negative motion picture films and a new and patented lens which can be used on a 35mm film projector to create 3D. I hope in fact that this arrangement can substitute for the expensive purchase of a digital projector for 3D and if so it should allay his fears of a great reduction in the production of 35mm release prints.

    3D is the Quadraphonic of 2010.

    Total f'ing joke of a technology.

    Want more consumers coming to your films? Increase the quality of your content. Gimmicks only go so far - and trust me, 3D is a *gimmick* and a half - thoroughly unneeded for the majority of cinema content.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    George Lucas announced, a few weeks back, that he was going to convert the entire Star Wars saga to 3D. The Phantom Menace" will come out in 2012. Not sure what process he's going to use though.

    It is possible to convert old films to 3D. Kodak recently patented one such method. A photo of the Fuji display was posted here recently with the lament on how much the product line had shrunk.

    Only way to sustain film production in the long run is supporting the chinese.

    Start buing Lucky and aother stuff from China - direct from Hong Kong and send them a strong message that they can keep their lines running.

    Kodak and Fuji will die off, no matter what.
