    Absolutely wonderful video. I had heard of Robin, but didn't realize how many great photographers' work was printed by him.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    The Silver Footprint Video

    I would like to thank all of you who have watched my Robin Bell Film, The Silver Footprint and comment on the comments you have made.

    Most people have been very complimentary and got the point of the film. I am a documentary film maker and my project was to make a profile on an interesting man and his craft, that would be accessible to a varied audience. Its purpose was for film festivals and hopefully TV (educational or middle of the night!). I was not making a film about the techniques of printing and certainly not a promo for Ilford, although I think darkroom printers should be on their knees thanking Ilford as almost the last company making a range of chemicals and papers to keep the art alive, especially in colleges. The Ilford section was, as some pointed out, how a darkroom craftsman needs their technology for supplies, and I think for the average viewer, a respite from dodging and burning!

    I will be taking the film off the public domain on Thursday September 30th for a new soundtrack and to shoot 'extras' of Robin showing techniques for 30 minutes or so for the DVD which will go on sale later in the year.

    I hope this will be welcome to your members, and again I thank you all for your interest

    Richard Dunkley, Director.

    Richard,

    An interesting film, but did intend the rather "mystic" tone?

    Thank you Richard, this has been most inspiring. I hope that when the finished film is available you will re-post this segment, as it is certainly a good promo for the final product. Please keep us abreast of your progress.
    Cheers,

    Thanks Richard for a very inspirational little production, the likes of which we rarely get to see - if ever. It's a pity stuff like this isn't shown more in the mainstream.... would make a refreshing change from the constant overload of motormouth celebrity chefs and the like !!

    I had the pleasure of meeting Robin very recently at an awards evening, regarding B&W magazines annual photography competition.

    Keep up the good work and inform us of any similar future productions.

    Thank you Richard for making the documentary, and I love the production quality of the film. Please post when and where I can buy the final product. Also, in your film, I saw Robin is mixing raw chemical, can you please ask him what those chemicals are for?
