KODAK Eastman Group

Case Study: Data Analysis

The Challenge

This project focused on Kodak: Eastman Group. What is interesting about Kodak is that after they filed bankruptcy in 2012, they were forced to pivot. The company began to focus on a hybrid of Science, Art and Industry, bringing together print, film, science and innovation. Another key component of their continuing success is reinvigorating revolutionary popular past products such as Kodachrome Film and the Super 8 for today’s digital landscape.

Kodak was and still is a forerunner and industry standard for storytellers and visionaries.

“On film, there’s a special magic on a set when you say ‘action’ and to the point that the take runs until you say ‘cut,’ that’s a sacred time. I’ve always believed in the magic of movies and to me the magic is connected to film. When you’re filming something on film you aren’t recording movement, you’re taking a series of still pictures and when shown at 24 frames per second through a light bulb, THAT creates the illusion of movement. That illusion is connected to the magic of making”
