In just over a century, humans have gone from learning what film can do to largely abandoning it. Many photographers still swear by film, but digital photo-taking is the choice of the masses. And now, the only known box of Kodak Film (for use in the Kodak camera) in existence is sitting, unopened, in a at the George Eastman Museum in Rochester, New York.
Looking ahead, Kodak CEO Jeff Clarke said, "It is our understanding that director Rian Johnson and cinematographer Steve Yedlin are planning to shoot Star Wars: Episode VIII on Kodak film. They are in preproduction and we are working with them to bring their vision to the screen the way they intend it.”
The museum announced Monday it acquired the film, which dates back to 1888, along with one of three known boxes of Kodak Transparent Film, which was originally introduced in 1889 and used in early motion pictures.
