Kodak has launched a new Web site (


) devoted exclusively to the next generation of filmmakers, and their schools and teachers. The Kodak Education Web site offers the educational filmmaking community easy online access to products, as well as the latest news and trends from within the rapidly evolving motion picture industry.

New features include online purchasing for a selection of Kodak motion picture film products in Super 8 and 16 mm formats at discounted prices for qualified student filmmakers and faculty based in the United States. Visitors are also able to purchase the popular KODAK VISION2 16 mm Film Kit, a package of 16 mm film with processing and telecine services from participating labs in the U.S., in addition to educational CDs and an array of educational tools dealing with artistic and technical issues. Free trial versions of the KODAK Look Manager System, a state-of-the-art previsualization tool for creating and communicating a film project's look from preproduction through post, are also available for download.

The Web site includes separate membership areas for students and faculty to access exclusive interviews and specialized information from Kodak. Membership-only areas of the Web site offer advice from professional filmmakers, including exclusive stories about recent and current projects, and reports from the front lines of productions that demystify marketing hype about the future of filmmaking.

“We believe in the future of filmmaking, and anticipate that this Web site will make it easier for students and educators to utilize the tools we have to offer as they explore the possibilities of telling stories with moving images,” says Wendy Elms, worldwide manager of the Education Segment for Kodak‘s Entertainment Imaging division. “It is also a way for us to support film schools and their students at a new level via the Internet. Educators and students have a broad range of choices for executing their creative visions, which may come to fruition at any time of the day or night. We designed this site to provide easy access to products and information for today‘s various workflow options.”

Sections of the site also focus on Kodak support services to the educational community, including information on film festivals, filmmaking guides, cinematography workshops, and scholarships, discounts and product grants.

Regular features include reports on student and faculty projects and activities at film schools around the world, as well as access to Kodak publications, including the quarterly magazine IN CAMERA.
