There’s a new project for film nerds on Kickstarter. It’s a documentary film called REVIVAL. The film, if funded, will spotlight artists shooting with film in the 21st century, and discuss why this supposedly dying medium has made a big comeback in recent years.
From the Kickstarter campaign page:
“Join us as we create REVIVAL – a globetrotting feature-length documentary raising awareness to the renaissance of the analog film phenomenon.
REVIVAL will champion the spirit of this growing art and cultural phenomenon – we’ll meet leading creatives making new work on film across analog stills photography and motion picture film. We’ll explore many genres and styles, from high end fashion to portraiture, to music videos, to street photography and much more.
We’ll observe the creative process unfold and hear what film means to each artist, hearing how they first came into it, and asking them, the labs, the galleries and commentators – in this fast-moving digital world, why are we enthralled with something slower and real?”
The list of talent currently attached to the film, both as creators of the film and the film’s subjects, can be found at the film’s Kickstarter page. In addition you’ll find the usual Kickstarter risks and rewards, budget breakdown, timeline for production and release, etc.
