Why Gear Trade Shows May Be Dying & Kodak Revives a Film Stock [PODCAST]

In this episode of Indie Film Weekly: Kodak Ektachrome, CES 2017, Golden Globes, BAFTAs, and more.

Co-hosts Jon FuscoEmily Buder, and Charles Haine discuss Kodak's big reveal at CES—the revival of color reversal film stock Ektachrome—and why trade shows are becoming irrelevant. We also discuss awards season, which kicked off with Sunday's Golden Globes; George Lucas' new museum; and how to manipulate aperture and light sensitivity.

As always, the show also brings news you can use about gear, upcoming grant and festival deadlines, this week’s indie film releases, our Ask No Film School segment, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.

It's cool that Ektachrome is coming back. The press release says Kodak will distribute it in Super 8 format directly and Kodak Alaris will distribute it in 35mm canisters for still photography. Does anyone know if it will be available in 16mm and 35mm for filmmaking?
