    "ANALOG FILM ON THE ADVANCE

    Footage is on the rise again," said Steve Bellamy, President Motion Picture & Entertainment, Kodak. The company, which had to file for bankruptcy in January 2012, has meanwhile reopened copying plants at Pinewood Studios in London as well as in New York, Atlanta and Bombay. "In our new branch in New York, we have already developed more than six billion meters of film because many feature films, commercials and television series are being made there." In the past four years, the demand for film material has increased significantly. 65 mm film is asked again. The demand for 35 mm material grew by 155 percent, that for 16 mm film by 206 percent and 8 mm even by 407 percent. Bellamy believes the initial excitement and enthusiasm for digital technologies has subsided. “It's comparable to the music industry, where there is a trend back to vinyl. Many bands would now like to record their records on two-inch tapes again. ”
