I am actually doing it in workshops and my book in the sense that I am trying to help lay the groundwork for a future generation of photo engineers, albeit on a smaller scale. I have also made some color single layer coatings. So........

As to small manufacturers making color, Oriental comes to mind. Back in the 80s they came out with a color paper that was compatible with Ektaprint 3 chemistry. Actually, AFAIK, it was made by Mitsubishi which also made papers and films for other Japanese companies and was allied with Konishiroku.

An Agfa style film made today would have an ISO speed of between 10 and 25, and would be quite acceptable but not great in terms of what we think of today.
