On October 28th The Impossible Project celebrated its 1st Birthday. To mark the occasion the team at the factory proudly restarted one of the majestic machines, feeding them with a tasty selection of vintage and re-developed components. And for the first time since a long time fresh filmpacks were sliding out of the giant machine again.
Even if this was not yet the new Impossible instant film, it still was a major step towards the production start of the new film that will happen on these very machines - which do obviously work like a clockwork.
The Impossible Project inspires Polaroid to re-launch Instant Cameras
We are pleased to herewith announce a history making cooperation between Polaroid and The Impossible Project:
As we have created quite some buzz about Analog Instant Photography over the past 12 months, the Polaroid licensee - The Summit Global Group - now can't resist any longer and announced at a press conference on October 13th in Hongkong that they will re-launch some of the most famous Polaroid Instant Cameras.
Therefore they are commissioning The Impossible Project to develop and produce a limited edition of Polaroid branded Instant Films in the middle of 2010.
The Impossible Project is proud and excited that its ambitions and all the relentless work that has already been invested are now becoming the foundation for Polaroid's comeback as a producer of Instant Cameras.
Large-scale production and worldwide sale of The Impossible Project's new integral film materials under its own brand will already start in the beginning of 2010 - with a brand new and astonishing black and white Instant Film and the first colour films to follow in the course of the year.
