Last week the city of Los Angeles welcomed Space Shuttle Endeavor to it’s new home, the California Science Center. The four-day journey through the streets of LA to the Science Center was captured beautifully in time-lapse in so many great angles by Matthew Givot and his small army of collaborators which included Joe Capra, Chris Pritchard, Brian Hawkins, Andrew Walker & Ryan Killackey and more.
This has been an amazing experience that I will never forget. My hope is that this film will show you the amount of dedicated people and teamwork that it took to get the Endeavour to its new home.—Matt Givot

One of our favorite instant film photographers Grant Hamilton is the man behind the project and we couldn’t be happier that the movie is finally ready.

Ian and his crew are traveling the country looking for interesting people and places to shoot, so check out there facebook and maybe join in on the fun.
If you’re a vintage camera lover like us, you’ll love PrismYard. It’s a fun tumblr/pinterest style site where you can pick the kind of cameras you’re interested in seeing and a whole stream of images is ready to stroll through. It’s relatively new, so there aren’t thousands of images on there yet, but it’s still inspiring site. If you’ve got a collection you want to show the world, they’re accepting submissions.
The principles are the same, but wow how things have changed.
Filmmaker Xander Robin commemorated the Kodachrome’s 75th and final year with this mini documentary about the film and the last shop that could develop it. For those of you who didn’t know, Kodachrome was the first commercial color film on the market beginning in 1936 and ending production in 2009. The last Kodachrome development lab, Dwayne’s Photo, in Kansas stopped processing the film in 2010 due to the shortage of chemicals available.
