This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
In spring 2016 Fuji announced termination of the world’s last instant packfilm production line. Since that day – more than 2 years ago! – we have been desperately searching for “impossible” ways to save this iconic film material. Just like we successfully did with the legendary Polaroid film by purchasing the last original factory in 2008 and restarting production the classic way. We failed! And honestly this was the best thing that could happen. Because finally we were forced to think outside the box, urged to develop a completely new approach, just and very precisely based on exactly what we had.
ONE INSTANT is NOT a CLASSIC PACKFILM but a next generation instant film based on a new, radical concept. We will start producing a modern peel-apart instant film in a small new manufactory together with carefully selected partners, designed for both, the experienced peel-apart film lovers and the modern, next generation analog photographers. Not even daring to compete with the classic film legends of packfilm history.
ONE INSTANT is a SINGLE SHOT peel-apart instant film. Supplied to you in a sealed, pre-loaded, lightproof eco-friendly paper cartridge. This is of essential importance because only a hand loaded single shot cartridge can be produced without the need of crazy machines and millions of pre-investment. Our special Kickstarter Edition will contain 6 ONE INSTANT cartridges.
As of December 21st, this project has raised $173,000 of their $203,452 goal. This project has 13 days left to raise the $203,452 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $11, you will get five postcards. For a pledge of $57, you will get a ONE INSTANT film 6-pack.
