Kodak to encourage film shoots with new production scheme

Kodak has introduced a new UK program designed to help non-studio productions originate work on film.

Kodak says that its Independent Production Package simplifies the budgeting process for indies and provides a package deal that includes stock, equipment rental and lab services.

“Film has always been a big part of the independent filmmaking community, and we want it to stay that way,” said Andrew Evenski, Kodak’s president of Entertainment & Commercial Films.

“This UK program makes shooting film a one-stop shop for filmmakers on a budget.

“From origination through post, we can put together a package to get their stories told on film.”

Filmmakers can request a combined services package that includes camera rental, stock, processing and transfer services.

Both 16mm and 35mm packages are available, tailored to fit their needs.

Options are calculated based on title length, shooting ratio, and the best price at a single per foot rate.

The scheme is partnered by companies such as Arri Rental, Panavision, Movietech, Take Two Films, Cinelab London and iDailies.

Kodak origination manager Sam Clark said: “All of these  companies understand the challenges independent productions face, and the program exists because we all want to see filmmakers realise their vision.”

Kodak aims to expand the scheme beyond the UK.
