Today I achieved a higher level of film photographer geekiness. I've loaded my own color film into a reusable roll. The cool part about it? It's Kodak's Vision 500t film. Now, to your average citizen, that's gibberish-- so, what is "Vision 500t?" It is a motion picture film. Yup, it's the same stuff movies like Interstellar, Django Unchained, The Dark Knight Rises, The Wolf of Wall Street, and Silver Linings Playbook were shot on, despite digital cinema being widely available.
I bought a roll of 400 feet of it. That's about 5 minutes of movie.. or about 75 rolls of 36 exposures. Now I've got it in a usable format, which means the unique colors and feel of motion picture film will now be available to my clients!
