    Vintage Documentary: How Film Is Made

    From Kodak in 1958. This one's a Dutch translation but has been subtitled back into the original english... pretty interesting...

    Yeah, that's a great film. If you read the subtitle credits you'll see they were an APUG related effort. I think it was a Dutch member who first posted it here several years ago.

    ahhh - yeah.. I'd be kind of surprised if it didn't show up here at some point in the past - but I really wasn't sure how long it'd been on youtube..

    I don't think it was on Youtube back then. From memory it was hosted on a website and could be downloaded in decent resolution. It'd be nice if some more industrial films like that were to emerge, perhaps from Agfa etc.

    For those who weren't aware of them, the Video section on APUG has links to a lot of interesting video, including the subject of this thread:

    It was me... I made the translation, together with the help of a few others, and did the technical stuff of adding the subtitles to a copy of the original video, as kindly provided by Frank Bruinsma of the Super 8 Reversal Lab. However, the posting on YouTube was done by someone I don't know.

    If you want to read a bit about the story behind the found film, you can find it here on my personal website:

    AGFA "How film is made"...

    There is one very similar film that is called "Zestig jaar Gevaert: van huisnijverheid tot wereldindustrie" (Gevaert later became Agfa-Gevaert and finally Agfa):

    You can watch it here (please let me know if it isn't viewable outside the Netherlands!!!, I possibly have another working link), on a Dutch history TV channel site:

    Zestig jaar Gevaert: van huisnijverheid tot wereldindustrie:

    http://www.geschiedenis24.nl/speler....m.7082986.html

    There has been a previous thread started by me, unfortunately, the link to the other APUG Lounge thread therein is dead, but the thread below contains an English text translation file I created (the original Gevaert video is in Dutch), and that you can download from the thread below:
