A Look Inside Impossible’s Instant Film Factory


Want an inside look at how The Impossible Project makes its instant film? The folks over at Highsnobiety recently paid a visit to the company’s factory in Enschede, which it purchased from Polaroid and rebooted. The 3-minute video above shows various steps of the instant film creation process, from development, to assembly, to boxing it up for shipping.

“One-part Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and one-part Wes Anderson film, the multistory building is fitted out in a palette of subdued ’70s tones of mustard, pistachio and orange, and while every machine has an intrinsic purpose,” writes Highsnobiety, “it almost looks like it was made purely for aesthetic purposes.”

The Impossible Project also says that they’re working on developing their own instant camera, and plan to have it available to photographers in 2016.
