|June, 2010||In June of 2010, Richmond Productions, Inc. receives this response from Kodak regarding its|
Petition Against the Elimination of Kodak Plus-X Film.
|May, 2010||In April of 2010, Kodak announces that it will no longer manufacture its slow-speed, black & white|
motion picture film, Plus-X. This comes as a significant blow to the global film community, many of
which still use Plus-X due in part to its beautiful contrast and fine grain. The legendary stock has
been in circulation for over 70 years. With the elimination of the stock in all of its formats
(5231/35mm negative, 7231/16mm negative and 7265/16mm reversal,) Kodak is severely limiting
filmmakers' choices. In addition, Plus-X reversal (7265) has been a long-standing favorite for
educators and film students on shoe-string budgets. Kodak's decision leaves them with only Tri-X
reversal as a potential substitute.
Once this is announced, Richmond Productions, Inc. begins a corporate campaign against the
elimination of Kodak Plus-X stocks. Filmmakers, educators and film students from around the
world add their names to the Plus-X petition, written by William DiPietra. On May 11, 2010,
Richmond Productions, Inc. sends the petition to the Kodak offices in New York City, Los Angeles
and to Kodak headquarters in Rochester, NY.
