Good result is what I meant to say. Not good luck. Don't leave things to chance of course.

Did everyone miss the podcast... Kodachrome. Forget e100. Koda-fn-chrome! I hope they pull it off.

I wonder how many K-14 processors have been saved from the scrap heap, if any.

In light of Kodak spokespeople already putting in question the extent of being able to actually "reformulate" 7285 (which was one of their marketing claims at the launch event a few days ago), I would keep any hopes for a full return of 7268 well under control – that photochemical re-engineering to meet current international legislation would be seriously non-trivial and very expensive, not to talk about refurb'ing the processing infrastructure.

I understand film is made in huge wide rolls and then slit and perffed. And that if a destributer orders enough of it, they will make it.

I'm listening to it right now and my heart sunk when they said there won't be any 16mm for some time.

It’s foolish, all Super-8 stock derives from Double-Super 8 which begins as 16mm strips.

One more time officers, pen pushers, have no idea of what goes on on the works floors.

They specifically mention in the podcast that the film starts as wide rolls, then get cut into 35mm and 16mm unperfed, then the 16mm gets perfed and split as Super 8.  That had me pulling my hair out saying "Just perf the doggone 16mm as 16mm already, dagnabbit!"

Precisely, and offer it perforated along both edges, too. In 50-ft. portions as well. On both triacetate and PETP base. On thin polyester base (2.5 mils) in double lengths.

I listened to that whole podcast, several times. Listen closely, what they did say is that if a cinematographer places a large custom order after the 6000ft master roll is made - they will entertain such offers. Have another listen, there is hope.

So maybe Wittner or someone could supply it. But that would increase the price. I can't really see why 16mm is such a problem for Kodak. Simpler surely than super-8 to produce.

They need to start with something and AFAIK, 16mm reversal film wasn't in the last years of Ektachrome in much demand. If there is enough demand for both 35mm still film and super-8, I'm pretty confident they'll roll out other formats as well (at least 16mm MP  and 120 for still).
