Is this a business?
Perhaps not for the Kodak of old. The one depicted in your excellent book. (Which I purchased.)

But Mirko has said directly that his intentionally small factory "can make quantities of a few thousand rolls of film at about 3-5 USD per roll", with some restrictions. (See his post here.) This is likely a glimpse into the longer term future of film manufacturing. And certainly a glimpse into the future of any so-called artisan films.
