Polaroid announced that it would stop producing instant film in 2008, and if it wasn’t for 10 former Polaroid employees and The Impossible Project the story would have ended there. Amazingly the small team was able to save instant film from extinction by creating a new instant film! The best part is they’ve given me a beautiful camera and two packs of film to give away to you guys. So who wants it?
The folks at Polaroid were out at the Pitchfork Festival a couple weeks ago and shot some cool portraits, including this one of Neon Indian. Even cooler than that they also hooked me up with a camera and a pack of film to give to you guys, so I was thinking we could have a little contest! What do ya say?
Why pay $300 for a fisheye when you can go to Home Depot and build one for $20? My friend Ryan and I bought a peephole and a couple pieces of pvc, stuck them together with a hot glue gun, and it was done. Literally 20 minutes. I felt like Steven Seagal when he made that silencer with a 2L pop bottle in Under Siege.
Take a peek at the fishy footage and some more photos below!
