Gevaert (Agfa) "How film is made" video of 1954
Sorry for cross posting, but since AgX posted this link in the Lounge, and threads there don't show up on APUGs main opening screen, I thought I would repost here as I think many of you would like to see this as well.
It is a Dutch film documentary about the Gevaert (later Agfa-Gevaert) plant in Belgium in 1954. Narration in Dutch, no subtitles, but see the comments in the other APUG thread by me:
Many, many similarities with the Kodak "How film is made" doc of 1958...
But this also shows some paper coating...
Full translation of 1954 Gevaert film
OK, so I have done it again, with a bit of help of AgX :)
Here is the full translation of the Gevaert film's Dutch narration in English
There may be a future subtitled version of the video down the line. I contacted the public broadcasting company hosting the current video, but more importantly also the national archive for this material (Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid) here in the Netherlands, and the latter party has the video available for sale on DVD for a reasonable price, but there may be additional licensing costs involved in making it publicly available on the internet, in which case I am not going to do it. It will depend, it is a 50 years old company video, so maybe there aren't actually licensing costs...
Minor correction to translation
A minor correction to the translation:
3,26 3,29 in which a blade was inserted, spreading the emulsion over the paper
3,26 3,29 to which a wide brush was attached, spreading the emulsion over the paper
As there is no modern type "coating blade" visible, but it appears some kind of brush. Actually the Dutch narration here is inconclusive, and uses a very unusual word in the context of the footage displayed.
