Film Isn’t Dead: The Resurgent Interest in Analogue Photography Video

Thanks to Matt Stuart from In-Public for sharing this short 8-minute film about the resurgence of film photography.

Personally I still love shooting film for the added challenge, how it slows me down, the aesthetic, as well as the surprise when I finally get my film developed. Shooting film (I think) has made me a more disciplined photographer, and also improved my street photography in general. Shooting film isn’t necessarily “better” than shooting digital– it is just different. If you’ve never shot film (or it has been a while), I recommend giving it a go in 2015!
