Kodak Announces New Independent Production Package

News Image
As part of Kodak's ongoing efforts to support independent filmmakers, the company has introduced a new program in the UK which is designed to help non-studio productions originate their stories on film.

Kodak's 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 U.K. 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 in the UK that are interested in shooting on film can request a combined services package that includes camera rental, stock, processing and transfer services. Both 16mm and 35mm packages are available. Options are calculated based on title length, shooting ratio, and the best price at a single per foot rate.

Partners in Kodak's Independent Production Package in the UK include ARRI Rental, Panavision, Movietech, Take Two Films, Cinelab London and iDailies.

"All of these well-respected companies that service the imaging chain have heard filmmakers asking for assistance," said Kodak's Sam Clark, origination manager at Kodak. "These companies understand the challenges independent productions face, and the program exists because we all want to see filmmakers realize their vision."

Evenski adds that Kodak is working toward expanding the Independent Production Package, and hopes to announce the availability in other regions soon.
