Kodak is offering a new package of film and postproduction services to film school students and faculty in the United States. The KODAK VISION2 16 mm Film Kit combines motion picture film, processing and telecine transfer services. It is priced at $1,150 for qualifying students and faculty.
"We want to make it easier and more affordable for students and educators to use film," says Colette Scott, worldwide education segment manager for Kodak's Entertainment Imaging Division. "The kit also provides step-by-step instructions on how to get the best results from a lab or post house."
Each KODAK Film Kit includes five 400-foot rolls of KODAK VISION2 Color Negative Films in 16 mm single-perforation format. Students and educators can chose from any of the six VISION2 stocks offered by Kodak. The kit also includes a redeemable certificate for processing and one-light transfers at a participating postproduction house, a KODAK Gray Card Plus, an aspect ratio target, camera reports, stickers warning against x-rays, labels for cans of exposed film, and instructional literature detailing the use of motion picture films, industry practices, and laboratory communications.
"The next generation of filmmakers is extremely important to Kodak," says Scott. "We designed the KODAK VISION2 16 mm Film Kit to assist in providing more students and educators access to film-based workflows being used by professionals today."
The KODAK VISION2 16 mm Film Kit is now available to high school and college students and faculty at institutions with educational programs that teach film and/or video production. Participating laboratories include LaserPacific, a mainstream postproduction facility in Los Angeles that is a Kodak subsidiary.
Additional U.S. facilities will be added throughout 2006.
