    Movie: "Time Zero: The Last Year of Polaroid Film"

    Saw this documentary (from 2012) on TV last night. I wish it had been more about Polaroid and less about people who shoot Polaroid, but still interesting to watch.

    I don't know what "Impossible" is. It was just an interesting movie mostly about how people think about the instant film image.

    I'm assuming you're upset because of the history of Polaroid in relation to nullified patents by Weyde etc?

    Hi Michael,

    My name is Grant Hamilton and I directed TIME ZERO. I'm glad you thought it was interesting. I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have.

    I saw this a well, it was cool to see interviews from people who were a part of the polaroid company for decades. Nice sound track as well.

    There was a section of the film
    from inside the plant showing the machines. And a small animation if the workings of a sx70 camera. I wish there was some more coverage of the various variety cameras, and types of polaroid films made such as in the end where there was a quick slide show of the impossible products. When I wrapped I felt it kinda seemed like a long ad for impossible though. The impossible story maybe should have been a separate documentary. And some cool stuff was left out, such as those awesome 20x24 polaroid cameras that are still in use.
