1922 Kodachrome Film Test

It’s been about 6 months since my last post because lots of new and exciting things have taken hold of my free (aka Blog) time. One of them being the pursuit of a marketing degree to balance my creative side with some official business chops. As you can imagine, school in addition to being a makeup artist doesn’t leave a lot extra hours in the day, but I had to make some time this morning for this video from Kodak. It’s as screen test for Kodachrome film shot in 1922. After only seeing moving images from this era in black and white, this color footage is pure magic! 

It seems the film itself didn’t actually capture the colors at the time of shooting, but was a complex process to achieve the lovely color palette we see here.  To read more fascinating and detailed information about this video, check out Kodak’s blog post.
