I understand that it was John who persuaded Kodak to make the stock available as a special order.
Ouch - I see it now. The 100D has a 20-roll minimum, the Tri-X reversal has a 5-roll minimum, and the release print (Vision 3383) has, if I'm reading it correctly, a 160-roll minimum of 2000-foot rolls! Wow, you'd have to really want to print some release prints in Regular 8mm format...
all the stranger since there is currently no color negative film available in that format.

Oh, and someone asked for the link:
