The program is open to cinematographers who are launching a Kickstarter campaign using 35mm or 16mm film. The first four participants include directors Derek Ahonen, Antonio Ferrera, Daniel Levin and R. Paul Wilson.
Once participants are selected, Kodak will provide either 35mm – or – s16mm film (negative, intermediate or print stock ) free of charge, correlating to the money raised by the Kickstarter campaign.
Here are the details:
● 20 percent match of the first $100,000 raised by the filmmaker on Kickstarter in list price 35mm (Not to exceed $20,000).
● 15 percent match of the first $100,000 raised by the filmmaker on Kickstarter in list price s16mm (Not to exceed $15,000).
Kodak will also provide discounted pricing to filmmakers on supplemental film purchases for the project. William Morris Endeavor’s Global Finance and Distribution Group will also mentor the filmmakers on packaging, financing and sales strategy.
