Absolutely true. Can't make omelettes until the chicken lays the eggs.
A proposed reintroduced (reworked) C-41 product? A proposed reintroduced (reworked) E-6 product? What are these guys thinking? Obviously they have not been reading this thread. Don't they realize those two tasks are impossible to accomplish? Or to even look far enough into the future to consider even trying to do?
How dare they?
They may try. They may, or may not, succeed. In either case it may be time again to dust off a little Teddy Roosevelt for the inspiration of our resident your-glass-is-definitely-half-empty crowd:
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." —Theodore Roosevelt
Don't be such a nay sayer... anything in film production attempts is a good thing, who knows... it could work... obviously they have the backing to do it, so they are proceeding, lets encourage them.
