    It's not Perez who decided the strategy, he just looks after the tactics.

    Well I ordered 30 rolls of new Portra 400 for myself. Now if everyone on APUG could just order 30 rolls of Kodak film all at the same time..

    Designing some FB ads to get more young people over to film. Opening a film processing service (C-41/E-6 with dip n dunk) and online film shop with very good Aus prices to get more film moving locally.. had a thing for free processing promotion of a roll for 10 people. Going to try and run monthly prmotional film give aways including free processing of those rolls.

    Maybe if everyone can do their bit...

    So far in 2011 I have purchased 42 rolls of 120, 10 rolls of 35mm and a bulk roll of 35mm. All in yellow boxes. I'm not done buying yet.

    Just a brief reminder to everyone here: As Ron has stated in the past, Kodak makes most of its film business with the movie film industry, whereas the photographic film most of us use barely matters both in quantity and in profit. While photographic film use has stabilized or even slightly risen as of lately (according to some press statements), it's the rapid decline in movie film use which makes Kodak's film division less and less profitable.

    So it doesn't matter if people publicly announce that they will buy dozens of rolls of whatever film, except for them personally, if they want to stock a life time supply before that film disappears from the market. The only thing which could possibly save these films in the long run would be someone taking over the know how from Kodak and downscaling their operations by a factor of 10 or 20.

    (On probably more than you realize.)

    The Kodak board - using Mr. Perez as their public hatchetman - has made a largely irreparable mess of things. Their early digital arrogance toward the other analog manufacturers has now given way to a fortress mentality. The wolves, if not quite at the door, are at the very least gathering out by the curbside lighting torches and preparing to ring the doorbell.

    But what of poor old George?

    Who among us today has the intestinal fortitude to seek him out and tell him that his triumphantly glorius finality was sorely misplaced? That his work was actually not really quite done. That he truly should have waited longer?

    Almost exactly to the day 79 years longer.
