Classic Movie Shots Recreated with Cats

UK couple Dave and Sarah love both films and felines, so they've launched an Instagram project that combines the two. Called @moviecats, each photo they shoot is a scene from a famous movie recreated with the help of their two cats.

Fujifilm to Raise Prices and Kill Film Lines Yet Again

In response to struggling film sales, Fujifilm has repeatedly discontinued unprofitable lines and raised prices over the past several years. The company has now announced its latest round of price increases and film discontinuations for its Japanese market in an attempt to make sure that its popular and profitable films can live on.

Famous Movies and TV Shows Recreated with Things Found at Home

We first featured the Cardboard Box Office project back in 2013 as parents Lilly and Leon Mackie were attracting quite a bit of attention for their creative recreations of Hollywood films with their baby boy, Orson. In the year-and-a-half since, the family has continued shooting low-budget photos, branched out into TV shows, begun doing commercial shoots with their concept, and been nominated for a Webby award.

Here's a second, deeper look at some of the work they've been creating as a family.

Parents Recreate Famous Film Scenes with Cardboard Boxes and Their Baby Boy

I don't have kids just yet, so I can't say from experience, but it seems one of the benefits of having a child is the ability to feature the adorable little guy or gal in creative photography projects. Examples abound: from Queenie Liao's wondrous naptime photos, to Nagano Toyokazu's series My Daughter Kanna.

Now, another great project has popped up on our radar. This one is called Cardboard Box Office, and it's the result of a parenting duo's creativity, an excess of packing materials and the addition of a baby boy to the family.

Supply and Demand Pains: Fujifilm Film Prices to Jump 20% Later This Year

Last week we reported that Fujifilm is planning to increase its film prices by 25% starting this month due to decreased consumer demand. Turns out that was specifically for the Japanese market, and that the hit won't be as serious in the United States.

Instead of a 25% hike this month, photographers in the US will be seeing a 20% hike starting on July 1st, 2013.

Fujifilm Velvia 50 Sheet Film to Live On, Boxes Get Makeover, Prices to Rise 25%

The hearts of many a film photographer sank last June when it was reported that Fujifilm would soon be killing off most of its Velvia film lines, including all off the sheet film lines, leaving only 35mm and 120 format films for Velvia 50. If you're one of the people who went out and began stockpiling the film for future use, here's some good (and perhaps bad?) news for you: reports of Velvia's death were greatly exaggerated.

A Supercut of Hollywood Movies About Photographers

Supercuts of movies are all the rage these days; here's one that'll be of interest to photography and camera enthusiasts. Simply titled "Photographers," the video was created by English artists Mishka Henner and David Oates, who spent hours upon hours watching more than 100 movies. The duo extracted short snippets from each one and spent months turning them into the giant whirlwind tour seen in the video above (warning: there's a dash of language, violence, and risqué business).
