This Tour of Kodak’s Factory Shows How 35mm Film is Made

The folks over at Negative Feedback recently paid a visit to one of the hallowed grounds of film photography: Kodak’s sprawling headquarters and film factory in Rochester, New York. In the 12.5-minute video above, photographer George Muncey and his crew take us along on the private tour they were given.

We get to see both the outside and inside of Kodak’s facilities, including glimpses into various steps of the film manufacturing process, from bins of base materials to finished rolls of camera film popping out the end of the assembly line.

The factory has the capability of producing 50,000 rolls of 35mm film every single day, Muncey says, but it’s unclear how many the company is actually producing on a daily basis.
