Throughout many industries, the concept of "retro" has permeated all of them to an extent. Pepsi with "throwback" cans, Jordan brand releasing "retro'd" designs, or Nintendo constantly re-releasing and promoting their games from the 80's.
If the company isn't pushing it, you'll find a population of consumers who want it anyway. Even on this forum I see many threads with people asking "How do I get this 70's look?" with some of the answers stating certain looks are partially in the chemical make-up of the film stock.
I heard something about Kodak re-releasing Ektachrome in 8mm stock, but throughout the years certain film characteristics keep evolving. A motion picture from 1979 will have a slightly different look from a 1996 picture. Partially technique, partially chemical processing.
Aside from this Ektachrome re-release, has there ever been a serious push by filmmakers for Kodak to reproduce stock from 1995? 1983? And so on? Solely for the look of an era?
Is there a reason this would or would not be feasible?
