The Kickstarter Video
Yesterday John Reuter, Nafis Azad, and Ted McClelland from 20x24 recorded the kickstarter video segment with Sam Hiser interviewing me. Our approach was to get sound bites that address the important and frequent questions potential kickstarter participants might have. But in the minute or two that we got, there isn't much about what could be beyond a successful New55 FILM introduction, which I see as just the hoped-for start of a new photographic industrial capability that might, if we are very lucky, extend into single sheet direct positive photography, color, and perhaps more. The infrastructure, business and general cultural pressures are against film photography and instant photography, for the moment. If we can change that and fully enter into the post-digital photographic era, same as post-indie music has done, it will only be due to demand, strong sales, and some profit.
