8 Comments

To pay homage to the return of beloved instant film, Mercedes-Benz has created a four and a half minute mini-documentary that takes an inside look at the inspiration behind bringing it back, the machinery used to make it, and even a look at how the analogue sorcery works.

The video highlights a number of interesting tidbits regarding analogue instant photography: from the acquisition of Polaroid machinery by Impossible to detailing just a few of the hundreds of chemical reactions taking place inside of an image once passed through the rollers, the mini-doc is both informative and inspirational.
