The Archivist: Historical Homage
It's no secret that the team behind "The Archivist" has a deep appreciation for film photography and the history behind it.
Filmed solely on 35mm Techniscope, we realize how much we owe Kodak for allowing our idea to come to life.
Had Kodak stopped production of film stock, “The Archivist” would not have been produced. The look of film is an essential aspect to retain the character of movie with this genre, as much as the scenery and characters themselves are.
Film glues visuals together in a way that digital cannot. Hand states that an effort of his was to, "make some people think about what movies used to mean, and how they looked before digital technologies became the order of the day."
So for your viewing pleasure, we have taken our favorite film-stills and made them black and white.
