Kodak was on the brink of death. Thanks to a number of die hard high profile filmmakers, though, Kodak film was saved. They lobbied studios in 2014 to place long-term orders with Kodak in order to keep the company alive. Three years on, and Kodak is still finding it difficult for productions and filmmakers to find locations to process the film. PDN reports that Kodak is working to solve that problem.
They’ll build, lease and partner with facilities in major cities around the world to process its motion picture film. The latest deal is a new 5 year lease on part of the Ken Adam Building at Pinewood Studios in the UK. Pinewood studios has been the base of many productions over the years from TV shows to big budget films. The James Bond franchise began here. More recently, X-Men, Captain America, Harry Potter and Doctor Strange.
