Dear Ladies and Gentlemen Analog,
almost 3 months went by since my last post, and hopefully there are still some of you left that have not lost the trust in the lazy doc and his crazy dream to save packfilm.
Because today finally is the day that I can inform the world with a big analog smile on my face that we really have the incredible opportunity to SAVE IT LIKE A POLAROID PICTURE!!!
The reason for my optimism are mainly based on the incredible team that I managed to bring together over the last weeks and I personally want to now introduce the 2 key players:
My friend and true analog maverick Mr. Bob Crowley, one of the very few people that made something possible that even for myself was truly impossible: by re-inventing and professionally producing the maybe most magic instant film of all time: the New55 PN, 4x5 inch black&white, positive-negative film.
Visiting his incredible instant film manufactory in Ashland changed my life and this very last place still producing peel apart instant materials is more than essential as the new home and development laboratory for this adventure.
We just finished a microsite dedicated to Bob and his team that I heartily invite you to visit in order to learn more about this wonderful people and their visions and their products.
But there is another person without whom I would not be able to write these lines. Allow me to introduce Mr. David Bohnett, who became my friend and powerful supporter in this adventure over the last exhausting and now productive months after contacting me in this travelog upon my devastating visit to Japan.
David sold his pioneering social network site, GeoCities.com to Yahoo ! in 1994 and has been an investor in dozens of technology start-ups since then. That he now also actively supports this project as a true believer in the importance of preserving analog photography, truly adds incredible value and impact to our mission to evolve a new modern future of the iconic analog peel apart.
I hope you agree that together with this 2 gentlemen we have gathered the very best team to start and spearhead this challenging adventure.
But of course we will need all of you to finally succeed and make this happen. So this is not only my invitation to celebrate this wonderful news today but also to stay tuned as we are currently preparing a Kickstarter campaign as the first important step in this mission. Please already sign up here to always receive the latest updates.
Yours truly excited,
