I made internegatives regularly until I got involved in the emulsion work. It is no problem really, to turn out a good interngeg. The problem is that there is no interneg film made anymore and so you have to use Portra 160 to do the job. It is OK, but gives some errors in the toe and shoulder region that a real interneg film would fix. I've posted the entire sequence here on APUG several times, so if you are interested, look them up!
Ok send me your 8x10 projector and I'll use that.... *facepalm*

Overhead projectors can do 8x10 no problem. Or build a projector from an 8x10 camera. It can be done. There's also the lightbox option - 8x10 on a lightbox is still 8x10, much easier to view on a lightbox without a loupe than a 35mm slide.
Shoot more film.
There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.
I fail to understand what Stone's latest filmic agonies have to do Film Ferrania and their production plans ...

It really is, a lot of people here just like to argue for no reason just to be difficult. I highly doubt if you took Portra and made an interneg if a Velvia50 image, and then optically printed it, that the saturation of color apparent in the original transparency would be at all comparable to the print.

And projecting your sheet film with an overhead? For one what use is that if you're trying to sell prints.... and two, you'll end up scratching your film... No thank you...
Film from Italy -- Ferrania starting production 2014
It's not about me, other people want to pick apart my comment to make drama, I'm just saying FILM Ferrania won't partner with kodak to re-create E100G or any other Kodak E-6 ... The rest is just people wanting to start an argument because they have nothing better to do.

According to the text at the bottom of the video link I posted, Film Ferrania is set to make a "big announcement" in mid-September. That's only four weeks away. How cool is that? Anyone wanna' bet whether there is a companion announcement by a certain large west coast (USA) film retailer shortly afterwards? Just a WAG (wild ass guess).
My guess is that Ferrania announces E-6 compatible cine film first, as that seems to have been their original motivation. Followed relatively closely by some 135 E-6. I don't expect to see 120 or sheet films for quite a while, even though they were quick early on to say they could do those as well.
I find it interesting that they seem to claim the delay thus far has been to work within a timetable for demolition of unneeded older manufacturing space, but on a schedule that will allow them to seek funding to "save" some of the production equipment they say they will need.
Originally I thought they said they didn't need any of that older (larger?) infrastructure. Rank speculation here, but I wonder if they took note of the abandonment of E-6 film by Kodak, followed by the continuing reduction of C-41/E-6 lines by Fujifilm, and decided their original plan wasn't likely to be able to handle the entire remaining residual worldwide color film demand after the other players eventually quit the market entirely.
So maybe they changed plans in the middle of the process and decided to preserve some of the other equipment? And they didn't have the capital under their original plan to do that, so the Italian government stepped in to lend a hand? The prospect of having a potential worldwide monopoly on color film in the near future, even at only residual volumes, might have sounded just too good to pass up?
Just thinkin' out loud...
"There is very limited audience for the arty stuff, and it is largely comprised of other arty types, most of whom have no money to spend because no one is buying their stuff either. More people bring their emotions to an image than bring their intellect. The former are the folks who have checkbooks because they are engineers, accountants, and bankers—and generally they are engineers, accountants and bankers because they are not artists."
— Amanda Tomlin, Looking Glass Magazine, 2014
Personally, im feeling along the same lines as this.

It really sucks that kodak has dropped everything E6, we should campaign hard on their facebook page. It would be good if they could licence the product for ferrania to produce, but i hope that their E6 lines replace what was taken away by kodak and Fuji, and that is high speed E6 film.
I even submitted an awesome photo for their photo of the day, which was taken on ektachrome e100g and it never got selected, partially because of it being a discontnued film i guess. This is the photo here:
I would like to see a film that is a good replacement for e100g and e100vs if nothing else.
Projectors for even larger formats are still offered.
